    dealing with a spider bite for 6 weeks

    greetings all. my poor Maine coon was bitten by a spider on his belly 6 weeks ago. since then it has been a roller coaster of stress and pain. He has had 3 rounds of antibiotics that last 14 days in the system, pain meds, and anti inflammatory. his entire chest and belly were covered with infection and bruising. it is gotten better but the wound is necrotic and wont heal. anything we put on the wound makes it leak serous fluid and i mean lots. the bruising and infection that exists is at this wound down towards his groin. my poor baby is miserable. He has been to the ER 5 times and they said they can only continue to treat the symptoms they dont know what else to do besides have me see a dermatologist. I called over 20 places (im not exaggerating) and they are all booked out for weeks in advance. My only hope is that this Monday i am bringing him to a different ER that has a dermatologist on staff in their non ER side. There is no guarantee that we will be able to see him but God willing it can be done. I no longer have hope. I have been sleeping badly. i haven't been eating. i am sick mentally and emotionally over this. I have tried colloidal silver and CBD oil on his wounds to no avail. lately he hasnt wanted to eat and hides under the bed constantly. My heart is beyond broken. I please ask for your prayers that Almond Joy gets better. Also, any advice will help. Thank you.

    Have you tried manuka honey? It is very expensive, but has a known powerful antibacterial action. Make sure you get the strongest strength (also, of course, the most expensive for that reason). It can be put straight on the wounds. You might need to fit a "lampshade pet collar" to stop your cat from licking the honey off. It is also quite sticky - protect your carpets and furniture - but it is amazing what it can do.

    Every best wish for Almond Joy's recovery.

    Thank you for replying. I wanted to try honey but I can no longer put ANYTHING on his scab. Everything I tried makes it leak lots of serous fluids. Last time I used colloidal silver on him he leaked for over 24 hours. we had to put a surgical suit on him and it was bad. he is currently wearing an inflatable donut.
