CAT - lost tip of tailHello. I'm not sure you deal with animals but .a chair fell on my cats tail two days ago and it bled profusely so i took to vets. They shaved the last 2 inches and cleaned the wound. they wanted to give her anti inflammatory and antibiotic injection and I declined explaining that she had a few months ago had a severe drug reaction. I said I prefer to treat her by homoeopathy, (through a hom vet who is not open weekends). They were very anti this and kept pushing the injections which i declined. I said I would watch her overnight ensuring it kept clean etc.
I rang my hom. vet who said to give her hypericum 30 and also bellis p, arnica, calendula if necessary. After 1st dose hypericum it began bleeding again and after 2nd dose it stopped.
Next morning (sat) it seemed fine though it looked like it had a chunk out of it and was 'hanging'. As there was no blood etc I left it but last night it seems she knocked it again slightly and it bled.
I gave 1 dose hypericum 30 and also 1 dose bellis p 30 the bleed stopped.
This morning the tip is missing. No bleeding. She is ok until she sees it and then goes a bit crazy.
I am concerned that she should probably see a vet but I can't get hold of the h vet and Im not too happy with the other one - they should have put a stitch in it on Friday/put a dressing on and also their attitude.
Anyway I'll probably taker her back today but thought Id try here first. I can't get hold of h vet today but they'll be open tomorrow. Sorry long winded.
UPDATE: Been to vet and they've glued the wound she also had antibiotic
shot and is now wearing a cone, poor girl not happy!
