Kittens with sudden front leg paralysis. Symptoms manifested

Customer Question

Kittens with sudden front leg paralysis. Symptoms manifested 24 hrs apart. Vet is baffled

It appears to be loss of motor control and not necessarily loss of sensation. Paralysis isn't complete because the kittens can grip with their paw. Kittens were found near their dead mother 1 week ago. Both kittens have no symptoms on their back legs

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

So both kittens are affected?

Where they normal when you found them and then developed this paresis?

Any known head or spinal trauma?

What tests have been done?
