I'm glad that Archie's skin is looking better today. It was clearly the meowmy snoozles that did the trick!  ;D

Thank you Rosella :hug:

Yes it was an anti inflammatory.  He has begun to leave ever growing sore area alone thankfully

Very much hope your gorgeous lad leaves the sore area alone Alison.  :hug: :hug:

Am I right thinking the pain killer is anti inflammatory and will hopefully therefore help stop the itching.?  Do hope so.

SHE SAID IT WAS EITHER FLEAS OR A BITE/ATTACK. SHE SHAVED MORE FUR OFF AND IT HAD SPREAD AS THOUGHT :( THE VET CLEANED IT THOROUGHLY AND THEN GAVE HIM A PAIN KILLER. IT IS INFECTED. SHE WANTED TO GIVE ORAL ABS BUT WILL TRY LONG ACTING JAB FIRST AS DIFFICULT TO GET THEM DOWN ARCHIE

NO COLLAR BUT MAY CUSTOMISE SOME CLOTHING AS HE HAS MADE IT BLLED WITH GROOMING AND SCRATCHING SINCE HOME :(

THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT :hug:

It is just below his neck Rosella on his back.

I wondered about a comfy collar too, have one somewhere but don't know where :-:

He can't go on like this so it will be back to the vet tomorrow

Agree vet visit best thing Alison.  Does look sore poor lad  :hug:

Not sure where it is on his back but if he keeps bothering it a comfy collar might help as long as if doesn't interfere with the sore area?

I'd get the vet to check but wonder if he is overgrooming due to the abscess?
