At this point he has been chewing this area since September 2008. We had used the cone then and it was nearly healed so we removed the cone. Then he went back to it. So we took him back to the vet and he (the Vet) x-rayed the area and said he had arthritis (that was his opinion).
Our cat does not seem to have a problem walking.
