Yikes! Veterinary Care for Bite Wound Abscesses

Abscesses from Cat Fights

What is an abscess?

An abscess occurs when an infection is sealed inside the body. Often abscesses occur after a bite wound or other puncture wound, and you may be able to see a small scab indicating where the initial puncture or bite occurred. Common locations for abscesses due to cat fights include face, legs, and the base of the tail.
