I have two male 3 year old brothers that suddenly fight. One ended up with an abcess I dont know what to do.

I separate them when we are out of the house. I have gotten vet check ups recently. I have Feliway plug ins. I have covered the windows. They get along during the day, but at night they fight.

Have either of your boys been neutered? Males who are intact are more likely to fight with each other.

Besides neutering, I would also recommend calming spray in the area where they tussle, calming treats or supplements, and calming collars. They will keep fighting until one gives in to the other for dominance, which might not happen any time soon. Do not favor one over the other with attention, or the situation could get worse. Since it is not a health problem, you will just have to deal with their behavior. Try distracting them with Greenies treats, but hand them out for good behavior and at the same time so they don't end up stealing each other's treats. ^_^
