I have a 3 week old kitten with an attached umbilical cord

Customer Question

Customer: I have a 3 week old kitten with an attached umbilical cord and a small protrusion at the belly. Should I leave it alone at this time and is there something I can do to get this to heal faster and get the cord to come off?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the cat's name?
Customer: no name yet, it is only 3 weeks old.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the cat?
Customer: no
JA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and connect you two.

Hi and thanks for your question. It looks like the professional you were hoping to speak with is not currently available, so I have stepped in to help you in their absence. Do you have any pictures to show what you're seeing?
