I have 4 cats and one is a "outsider" that comes in only to eat and heal from all his fights. Believe it or not he(chuckie bronson) is really affectionate also. Anyways, he always suffers from huge puss balls and missing fur spots. The puss balls are caused by cat bites. Cats have needle like teeth and the initial bite heals almost overnight but the internal infection swells. I usually give my cat a dose of baytril (used for my snakes) 10mg/kg and open/squeeze the puss ball and apply polysporin...The cat rests for a day or two and is right back at it......another example how snakes help is only how I do it and I am not a vet.
