Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi. My name is***** I'm sorry to hear about Tigger's situation. Do you feel he's breathing with a normal rate and effort? How long ago did your vet last evaluate him? Is he drinking today? Is he urinating normally?
Thank you for that information. Could he have just landed wrong and is a little sore and that is the root of all this? That is a definite possibility. Could it be something more? That can't be ruled out. If at this time he's breathing with a normal rate and effort, eating, able to be comfortable at rest, isn't having a leg that is being drug, or is getting more distressed - then time may be the big part of this getting better. Taking him down on his prednisolone dose shouldn't be the cause of this. The worry with any cat is if they have a lurking heart issue that may be causing them to throw blood clots - this can show as sudden issues with mobility of a limb(s). Typically these are very sudden, progressive, and pretty obvious that something is majorly wrong.
Please let me know what questions I've created with this.
