Customer Question

I suspect that my 10 yr old cat Fluffer may have a broken tail and also a broken back because she doesn't jump up she kind of claws her way up on stuff and her tail doesn't move, and it makes it hard to keep her clean when she goes poop

Hello this is Dr. Holloway but you can call me Dr. H for short. Oh my! I am sorry to hear that your pet may have fractures along the spine and tail. This is a very serious affair if that is the case and no way to know for sure without an x-ray of the bones to look for fractures.

Do you have any idea what could have happened to her?

Is she able to use her back legs at all?
