Q. Cats paw bite 2 wks ago. Vet gave antibiotics, was ok until today. Swelling came back and she isn't putting pressure on paw. Anything I can give her?

A. It sounds that she will need different antibiotic or even the leg should be x-rayed. You should take her back to your vets as there is nothing you can give her at home.
