Customer Question
He can’t seem to...

He can’t seem to fell his right rear leg and possibly his left rear leg. He spent the night outside (which was accidental since he is an indoor cat). We found him this morning and he seem traumatized. This is when we first noticed the lack of movement in the legs. To him to our vet and had an X-ray. No structural damage. Pain meds were prescribed. We were told it could just be a neurological issue? We are wanting a bit more clarity and would value a second opinion. Cat is about 2 years old

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the cat's name?

Marshmallow

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Marshmallow?

We have some perimeter fencing that sections of a part of our yard. We found him in this small section of our yard. We think he may have gotten his leg caught but we aren’t sure
