Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 25 years experience and would be happy work with you.
If there is no visible sign of a fracture, there is no way to know if one has occurred without an xray. If the leg is dangling and there is swelling, there very likely could be a fracture. From the standpoint of pain and possible repair, it would be better if you were able to have her seen before Monday. I would seek out emergency services sooner, even if that means you would have to drive a distance to have her seen. There really are no safe over the counter pain medications that can be given to help relieve her discomfort.
I you would provide me with your zip code, I would be happy to try and help you locate emergency services in your area.
I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please reply so I can clarify for you.

Thank you for the update. An infected puncture wound is much better than a fracture.
