More common in cats than dogs. Often as a result of fighting whereby a bite takes bacteria fairly deep below the skin surface and within a day or two proliferation of bacteria combined with the bodyʼs response to that infection causes swelling, heat, pain and often lameness if involving a limb. The animal will often run a temperature. Do take your pet to the vet – there is lots that can be done.

Our veterinarians are all experienced general practitioners with a broad knowledge and
understanding of animal health, illness and injury.
