Ask a Vet and Get Your Veterinary Questions Answered.
Hello, this is Dr. Bruce and I would like to help you with Kiki.
I'm sorry to hear that he is having this issue.
Has there been an x-ray taken to confirm that the leg is broken? If there is yellow liquid coming out of the leg, then there is definitely an infection. That yellow liquid is probably pus.
okay no there was not any x-ray taken but a little limp its getting better over the lasat few day from barely walking to running
I would suspect that he probably has an abscess (pocket of infection) in the leg, and that the abscess has finally opened up and drained. That would be all the yellow liquid that came out when he was picked up.
Is Kiki eating and drinking normally?
OK. Great! It is unlikely that he has any broken bones. He would not be getting better over the course of a few days.
Ideally, he should be seen by a vet, so that the abscess can be cleaned out, and he can be put on antibiotics.
okay why do you think he was walking funny at first then
Abscesses are very painful.
okay I will take right away thank you
You are very welcome. Most cats will heal very well from abscesses. I hope that Kiki is feeling better very soon!
