How Much Does a Cat Abscess Treatment Cost?

An abscess is defined as a lump or sac that contains pus, generally caused by bacteria, a foreign material or parasite.  You will usually know if your cat has one if there’s swelling in the area as well as a redness-like color.  As time goes on, the wall surrounding the pus will begin to thin out, eventually rupturing and draining out.

In some cases, your cat’s natural white blood cells will be able to destroy to destroy the invading culprit; however, if your cat is unable to naturally fight off this abscess, then you will need to consult with your veterinarian for treatment options.

How much did you spend?

Was it worth it?  

  1. William Miles (Spannaway,  WA) paid $245 and said:

    Our cat had a massive abscess in her front leg from a cat bite. The $245 we paid was for simple abscess removal, medication, etc. However, he did surgery to remove dead tissue that was present from her paw all the way up her leg that he didn’t charge us for. What a blessing to find that vet.

    Was it worth it? Yes
