3195. The cat's back leg was cut by the sharp pen knife

July 3, 2018

The owner decided to use his sharp pen knife to cut the Siamsese cat's backside hair. A 2-cm laceration wound of around 3 cm was made into the skin, exposing the muscles. So he used his Nova powder to treat the cut.

No closure of the wound as the cat would lick the powder away. 

He lived near Vet Central but the vet clinic was busy at 4 pm. So he googled and came to Toa Payoh Vets as he had to start work as a Deliveroo man.

In his 50s, he looks very fit. He has perfect eyesight and could climb 30-storey high crane tower to operate the crane. No fear of heights. "There was a crane that toppled," I asked whether he was working in the same area. "I was in the other crane. There was some miscommunication between the foreign workers, leading to this accident!". 

The cat is given antibiotics today and will be operated the next day.  He wanted me to clip a very small area to stitch up the wound, but this is not good for the cat as the wound is large. Debridement is needed to cut off the old edges. Cleaning and stitching.
