Hi there and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed, internship-trained veterinarian with 11 years experience in general medicine and emergency and critical care medicine and I would be happy to assist you. Please be patient as there may be slight delays in responses as I research your pet's issue.

Does your cat go outside? Is it one paw, or both front paws? When you handle the paw and manipulate and squeeze it gently, what does she do?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
She is strictly indoors. Her paw seems ok, possibly her shoulder. She is very hesitant to walk and limps when she does. Her eyes are dilated too
Expert:  Dr. Ann M. replied 3 months ago.
Is there any swelling or obvious pain when you rub the leg and squeeze it and try to move it?
