Customer Question
I have a 5...

I have a 5 week old kitten that can not walk. He just keeps rolling. I think he may have CH. I rescued the mama from the jungle here in Hawaii. She came about 5 weeks pregnant. Do you know if he does have that could he still learn to walk?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?

She had 3 other kittens that are fine

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the kitten's name?

He can kind of climb

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