Abstract


A 2, 5 - year-old DSH female spayed cat was presented with a history of a tail base wound resulted from an abscess inflicted in a cat fight. The wound was managed initially as an open wound for 3 days and was covered with a bilateral rotation flap. One year after surgery the cat was reported to be in good health and the wound healed uneventfully.
