My flyer has something growing on her belly.

Postby loonytunegirl » Sat Oct 22, 2011 6:13 am

Hi, My husband and I are from Ohio and we found a flyer in our driveway that I think a cat had tryed to eat. We brought her inside and nursed her back to health and have had her going on 6 years. We love her dearly. About a week ago we noticed she had what looked like an infected breast. We don't have any vets around here that know anything about flyers so we looked online and saw that we could use neosporin on her. She is now getting another one on another breast. They look like boils. They are huge this morning. I can't tell if she is in pain. She drinks a lot of water but she won't eat much at all. Our vets around here won't even look at her. Can you please help me? I would take her anywhere to save her life. I just don't know where to take her. Thank you.

The only thing you can do is find a vet who works with rodents. Or your vet can call OSU's vet school for a consultation. She needs medical evaluation and care.

Mastitis is not that common. Sounds like that is what you are up against, though. Antibiotics should help her out. Topically, will only help after the fact. By mouth or injection will hopefully stop further eruptions. I have seen animals slough some tissue over breast cancers too; so that is an outside possibility. Hopefully you can find a vet who will see exotic animals soon.
