Hello, this is Dr. Linda. I hope I can help with your question today.First, I am sorry no one has addressed your concerns earlier. We come on line at different times, & I only now saw your question.Second, I am so sorry that Blaze has somehow fractured his humerus. Have you tried keeping him in a confined place? Some cats really do not mind being confined, especially if you use a large crate that can accommodate a litter pan, food
& water dishes, & a comfortable place to rest. Every veterinarian that sees & treats cats will need to keep them confined for some periods of time. Boarding facilities, shelters, & catteries keep cats & kittens confined for long periods of time. So Blaze may do very well.Recovery will probably be 6-8 weeks, regardless of how you treat his injury. Rest & minimal use of the leg are imperative for a good outcome.The chances of the bone healing well depends on where, & how badly the bone was broken. Orthopedic repair is the best, ***** ***** the break is non-displaced & did not involve the joint, then conservative therapy and rest may be adequate. If feasible, the leg can even be slung to the body wall.So, try a large crate, use a Feliway diffuser in the room ( it produces a calming odor that only cats can detect, & is available at all the major pet stores ) & Blaze might be quite content to be catered to.If the break is not a really bad one, Blaze might be walking on the leg in as little as 2 weeks!I hope this addresses some of your concerns. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to let me know.Thank you.
