Customer Question

Hello, my kitty is limping and her back foot is swollen. She is in pain when I touch it. Could it be something stuck in it, and how should I best get it out or help her?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

How long has her foot looked like this?

Are you seeing anything stuck?

Any bruising or wounds present between the toes or anywhere else on the foot?

Does the foot have an odor (ie pus)?

Does she have outdoor access?
