The Doctors: When Cats Attack
The Doctors TV show shared a video from Molly, who suffered a cat bite on her hand several weeks ago.
After being bitten by her cat, she washed her hands and then went to bed. She woke up and her hand was throbbing so she put some ice on it. It continued to get worse. She took a picture of the bite and emailed it to her doctor, and he instructed her to go to the emergency room.
The Drs: Cat Bite Infections
At the emergency room, they gave Molly antibiotics but her hand continued to swell, and she thought she might have a fever. She went back to the ER where they admitted her and informed her that she needed to have surgery.
