I have a nine week old kitten that all of a sudden started crying. She was running around with her mates. Seems as though the tendon in one rear leg is damaged
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The noise must be worrying. I'll connect you to the Veterinarian. What is the kitten's name?
Customer: Sweet Pea
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Sweet?
Customer: Shes holding it up and wont put any weight on it

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with 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 wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

Can she put any weight on the leg at all (even for a moment)?

Is she sore when you flex or extend the leg?

Could she have fallen during play?

Any swellings or sores?
