I think you are right. Crazy thing is .. Here.. I can cover the bills easily. It's starting to snap off so that will make it easier to do.
Through the cat protection lady I received a message from my old vet here and we are going to try and get her to suggest antibiotics that she knows we can get here with the correct dosage .. I've just weighed him. Been bathing tail in iodine and using antibiotic cream. Tonight I managed to spring him some water with baby vitamins in it, coz he hasn't eaten really and is looking dehydrated.
Yeah his tail has regrown beautifully before. When I got him it had been pulled off or chewed ? There was muscle/ flesh hanging out and bone prutuding. We managed to heal it.. Using antibiotics daily and bathing tail in iodine ( thanks to the previous vet... Who I'm missing terribly)
Thank you so much for your advice, it does help. Like I said no one cares for them here... and I'm kind of learning as I go along. They seem readily available to buy as cute babies at open markets but after that they seem to be disposable.
I suppose one positive is now I know why he was soooooo miserable before, I thought he was depressed , poor little thing was sick and in pain.
And yes.. I do need to suck it up and amputate that tail.
