Common Questions and Answers about Cat broken leg vet

Then I noticed he was favoring one leg. I think it might be broken! I've called a few places and no one wants to deal with him, of course. They're just going to want to euthanize him instead of help him. So my question is this--- what do I do?!?!?!?! We just got rid of our dog on Thursday just to find a cat at the back door last night. Granted there were valid reasons for giving the dog up I am not an animal killer or neglector and I feel absolutely awful for this cat.
The x-rays also showed that Beckett does have a broken femur (leg) and it's been broken for about a month and has healed over funny. So the only option is amputation. My SIL, a vet tech, also told me it sounded like amputation was the way to go when I described everything to her. So we're looking at about $450 on a surgery on a cat that just appeared on our doorstep. Ouch.
I am so sorry you are in pain honey. Do you have anyone who can hold the pills for you?
that happened to one of my cats when she was only 2 years old. The emergency vet thought she had broken a leg, but couldn't find any fractures (this was in the middle of the night over the weekend), the next morning, when she lost functioning of two more legs, she had to be put to sleep. It still makes me cry just thinking about it... I really hope this is not the case with your cat, but I definitely wouldn't take any chances. If you haven't already, please take her to the vet ASAP!
I don't think its broken since he is able to use the leg, but I'm wonder about dislocation or a sprain. I didn't feel any swelling or heat on the leg. He is a super sweet cat with the most gentle disposition I have ever seen. I don't want him in pain if I can help it. thanks.
ok we took her to the vet this morning. GREAT NEWS!!! Nothing broken, nor no internal injuries. Badly bruised. They figure she was hit by a car, bike or kicked by someone. They have given us pain medication to help keep her comfortable while healing and an anitbiotic just in case. We are so relieved. Now the question I have is should we from this point on keep her as an indoor cat?
Well we had our FIRST vet appointment today and it was about $233 for x-rays of the cat's broken leg, vaccines (including rabies), ear infection medication, worm medication, and the consultation. I don't even pay that much for MYSELF when I go see the doctor... but then again, I have insurance. I contacted PAWS to see if they could help us with a lower cost neuter since the little guy is a stray and we're just a young pastoral couple who don't make much.
I took a look and it's very sensitive, and I'm afraid it might be broken. I'm trying to get her to the vets today, but was wondering if anyone knows what this might mean for her? Do tails heal well? I can't imagine it being casted or anything, so how is it done? Any info would be great and thanks.
My cat is going back to the vet. His bleeding has gone insanely bad, and it has become ridiculous for a cat to be bleeding like this. He was fine until last night. I found blood again and all the mucuse from the colon was covered in blood and loose stool. This morning the story was the same, or worse, so I think it's time for him to be seen again by his vet. I need prayers here. Treatment (antibiotics and prednisone) obviously didn't work. He is only 1 year old.
First step is to examine the leg. Have you felt the leg to see if anything is broken? Is there an open sore? If there is a break he needs to see a vet. Sometimes because of the fur or the direction of a cut we can't see them unless we check throughthe fur, give him a close up look. If it is an open sore it could be an abcess or cut, you need to determine which it is and treat it accordingly.
My cat has been hurt, I don't know what happen to him, but he was laying on the steps in the garage and wouldn't move when I let the dogs in, so I pulled him in to the kitchen and got the dogs in. I noticed a few minutes later that the cat had not moved from the spot where I had left him. He was looking at me like he wanted my help and I noticed he was trying to get up but was having a really hard time. He was hurt.
My poor kitty…..this could have happened when I wasn’t there. He would be at the vet right now with an injured back and broken bones!!
When Sophia Loren fell earlier this summer, the first vet result was that she had broken her leg. My vet does not do surgery, but gave her a shot that was suppossed to last 5, 6, or 7 days for pain. I did not know that the side effects are usually the same on this pain shot for people and animals. I have never had an animal on pain relief and didn't know what to expect. 24 hours later I am calling the vet all wound up that she hadn't peed or pooped yet and I was hauling her in.
Other than that, did you check her leg? Any visible wounds? Is she active? Could the leg be broken? Your best option is to take her to the vet. Please come back with updates, and I hope your kitty is well. Just remember, that if she indeed has diabetes, that this isn't a death sentence. Let us know if you have any questions and we'll gladly try to help you as much as we can. PK.
Tonight the cat started moaning and favouring his back leg like it was broken. Is there any way the 2 could be related, or do you think it is an entirely different stiuation. Thanks in advance, Ryan.
A month ago this happened? And, the cat has been suffering that long? Please, take him to a vet.....find a low-cost one if money is a problem, or ask for a discount or something, Even call the SPCA to ask if one of their vets would see your cat for free or discount.because you are financially unable to pay for a vet.
Wow, I can't get over how similar your problem is to mine. 6yr.old Male cat "Zorro" recently had all of his teeth removed; I took him to the vet because he kept pawing at his mouth after only a bite or 2 of food (even liquids) after exam, blood panel, and x-rays, it was determined he needed to have 10 extractions. Well he continued to paw at his mouth, a biopsy was done, results came back negative. So the rest of his teeth were removed.
My dog screamed and screamed and the vet could not get the needle in properly. I could not hold her properly as the vet kept asking the nurse to hold her by the scruff of the neck because she was snapping at her which is not the way I would have liked her to go! There was blood coming out of her legs which I do not know if this was normal or not. Then the vet told us to leave while I cried and cried outside for 5 mins.
when i go to check on the boys in the middle of the night she hides in their bathroom (it's pitch black in there) and lounges at me from the darkness and attacks my leg then takes off down the stairs like a bat out of h3ll. does anyone elses cat prefer one person to another? or just flat out torture them on a daily basis?
We think his front leg was injured the night of his escape because the ER vets noticed his claws on that paw were broken. Fred still has a slight limp and some pain in his leg. His behavior problems, lethargy and reduced jumping persist. We recently noticed a change in his fur/skin, which is dull and flakey. New food is helping somewhat. Fred appears to be sensitive to brushings (he used to like it, now it seems to hurt). He also feels fragile.
no numbness or anything on the back of my leg. While the leg is numb, it still gets itcy and it is very irritating to scratch it. If I stand or walk for too long, the burning sensation comes into play, and I have to sit down, because it also hurts my lower back, makes my back feel like it will break if I don't sit down. This has been going on for 23 years! And not one doctor can tell me what is wrong...
A trip to the vet showed it looked like he had been in a cat fight and had copped a bite on his leg resulting with the joint being swollen. The vet prescribed Metacam by giving him a couple of drops every few days. After a couple of weeks he wasn't improving much so I took him back again. This time they gave him blood tests and did an xray on the leg as well. The blood tests came back clear and the xray showed the leg wasnt broken/fractured.
They took x-rays and ruled out that it is broken. The vet believes this is a blood clot....and that his blood sugar level in that leg was 100 pts higher than the other leg... After doing some research about blood clots in legs, most of the problems associated with heart disease has to do with paralysis of the rear hind legs. Can anyone provide me some insight into what could be going on? Did he suffer a stroke? nerve damage? He has never suffered any type of trauma before this trip to the vet.
My cat broke his rear right foot 6 weeks ago. I took him in to the vet today to have his cast taken off. The cast was a half cast. The vet informed me that my cat has some mummification happening in his foot. The site of the break has a lesion and the vet said it will become infected soon. He said there was a loss of circulation. My cat did not show any signs of a problem when the cast was on. When the original injury occurred the skin was not broken.
I, too, found a stray with a problem. My cat's leg was broken and the vet recommended amputation. They could either surgically create a hip for the cat or amputate it's leg so that the cat could jump and run around!
i once took in an injured baby bunny that my cat had gotten ahold of. it had a broken leg and i rushed it to our vet. they had to put the baby down, but i didn't have to pay anything.
Hi Bing, Hard to say! Kittens have such small "parts" it might be unlikely to even feel a bone fracture. My suggestion would be to take the little one to the Vet and have the professionals take a look at it. It could be a soft tissue injury, a fracture, broken, or Nothing at all, just an OUCH! moment. Be safe and let the Vet examine your kit, K? Hope it is nothing serious, CML P.S. Cats will "purr" even when in pain .
Step 1: Approach the cat carefully. If your cat is nervous or anxious, restrain the cat if necessary. Step 2: Do not pinch the affected area. If the cat is stung by a bee, scrape the stinger off immediately with a credit card or dull knife. Step 3: If the stung area is swollen and hot, apply cortisone cream and hold ice on skin for a short time. Step 4: Administer antihistamine such as diphenhydramine orally at a dose of 1/2 mg per pound of body weight (e.g.
You see this way there was no paper work and no record of the adoption. Perhaps you could pay the vet in installments. Maybe the cat's leg is not broken, but the leg still needs attention now. I will share a story with you. My first rescue cat, Mandy, a beautiful female ginger cat, was pregnant and I didn't even know that when I adopted her. The shelter estimated that she was about a year and a half. Well, I brought her home and it was near Easter time. The next day, she started to bleed.
Amazingly, the owner had caught the falling feline just before it hit the ground, but on the way down the kitten hit a large branch. His back leg was clearly broken, and after giving some pain meds we talked to the owner about his two options: Fix the broken leg, or amputate. Three legged cats, or "tripods" as they are affectionately known, have become quite the designer pet as of late. Thankfully, so far, Paris Hilton et all have not discovered this trend.
