Help my cat - emergency!I discovered a bite wound on my cat's left thigh/back leg today. Or I noticed that he was feeling really bad yesterday. He screamed when I tried to pick him up, I did'nt understand what was wrong. I gave him ARNICA and let him be. Was going to go to the vet today, but he seemed better this morning so I decided to wait. Then I discovered this wound, probably from another cat biting him.
I took some Tea Tree Oil on it. STUPID ME! Afterwards I googled it and saw that this is really really POISONOUS to cats! They might even die! I tried to wash it off, but a fair amount has probably already been sucked up by the wound/skin. I gave him Charcoal, because that is the only thing that seems to be able to do when they've got Tea Tree Oil-poisoning.
He's been very low for the rest of the afternoon and evening. Just lying down and resting.
I gave him some more Arnica, and then... maybe this was another stupid mistake, I gave him som Phosphorus. I only have a few Homeopathic remedies at home, from when a Homeopath was working with another cat of mine.
Now I am really worried that he might die? I called the vet and asked if they know if Tea Tree Oil is so poisonous that they might die, but the vet (this is a big animal hospital in Sweden) didn't know.
WHAT SHOULD I DO?!
He shows his HAWS from time to time (when he's been sleeping and opening his eyes again) and he's done that ever since he was little. He's almost a year now.
Should I just wait? Give him another remedy? (I was thinking Thuja but it's probably not good mixing to many? I heard you should really just be using one thing at a time)
I am afraid that he'll die on me here...
