I noticed yesterday that Flipps left cheek is real swollen causing his eye to squint. This is a rough week for us financially. Lots of unexpected expenses that came up quick!

Are there any natural remedies for this issue?

 Look what I found on Ebay

no natural remedies, he has an abscess and needs antibiotics at the very least.

then he still needs antibiotics if its that swollen it's prolly infected.

Vetericyn vf would work if it were just a scratch that needed healed but with that much swelling i'd guess it's infected. Infections can turn sepsis if left untreated.
