Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

How long has he had these signs?

Can he grip with his claws on this foot? Any feeling in the foot?

Is he holding it up or dragging it?

Any joint swelling or discomfort when you flex/extend the joints?

Any boney crunching when you move it?
