Hello, Lola! How are you?

Oh my, please don't use salt, that will very painful for him. With a burst abscess, he does need an antibiotic.

And yes, you can give him Servicillin, as long as your veterinarian approves. The dosing is usually 5 to 10mg per pound of weight given 3 to 4 times a day.

Side effects in felines, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include nausea, dizziness, skin rash and diarrhea.

Is there anything else I can help with?
