Hello all, my boy Oscar has an abscess on his cheek which i have cleaned out, however there is this white thing sticking out of the wound. I'm too worried to pull it out incase it causes him more discomfort. Please advise me as to what to do next, should i take him to the vet or leave it to heal??

Yes take him to the vet. He probably needs antibiotics.

Good for you that the wound is open. Make sure it stays open until you see the vet. A scab and healing over usually means it cannot drain.

Do you live in an area with Bot Flies?
It looks like a possible larval stage for a Bot Fly?
Definitely take to vet...
Best Wishes!
