Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
Has your vet discussed sending you home with any pain medication to see if this might help her symptoms and give you confidence she's not in pain (and if she is that it's being treated)?
My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech tech for 35+ years. It seems your Expert could not respond. I have looked over the information and want to give you some information on hind end weakness. Low potassium levels can cause hind end weakness, Neuropathy is a possibility, but is usually caused by diabetes, it can result from an injury to body tissues or a growth in the spinal cord and lastly a blood Clot which unfortunately is the worst and scariest reason for hind leg weakness. I would let the Vet know about this Hind leg weakness as in this case they may want to see her or give medication. Hind leg weakness in cats is always worrisome.
I will be off line for a few hours, but will check back for any responses and quastions you may have. PLease look over the information and I will be back to assist you.
To be honest, I would get the blood work for a low potassium level, but my greater concer is how fast this came on is a possible clot, and that is why I wanted you to alert your Vet. They may put her on a low dose blood thiner like aspirin. I just want to make sure you have all the time you can with her. She is a fighter and blessed to have you as her human. As far as a spinal tumor and an Xray, I would not put her through that stress. A potassium issue or a possible bloodclot would not stress her out as much as an Xray.
I am paid when you rate my service which is the strars above this box. I am sorry the other Expert did not finish with you and I am also sorry I kept you waiting. I had a small family emergency that I had to deal with. Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with. Just ask for me by name and I am more than happy to assist.
Any questions just hit reply.
Thank you! Please let me know what your Vet says and I hope is is nothing serious.
Please keep me updated. If Neurolical, there are treatments, but again I am not sure if that is something you want to put her through, with all going on. I will keep her in my prayers and look forward to an update on what is happening.
Thank you! I just want to be sure they do not put her though too much and rob her of her fight and what she still has. I look forward to updates.
You have already paid me. The only thing you can do is leave a bonus, but that is not necessary. I like to help the Pets and the people they own. She is beautiful! Give her some Extra scratches for me.
I am humbled by the compliment. Please let the site know it you are happy with my service and if I have made a differenece.
Oh, I am so sorry about this news on top of all you have both been thrugh. At least there is no pain and she has you who loves her and will be with you until she can rest peacefully. Please take care of yourself too as this is hard on the caretaker as well as the patient. Thank you for the generous Bonus, you did not have to do that. What I do is a labor of love. I am here if you need me.
You will know when it is time. She will let you know. If she can no longer eat, has breathing problems, cannot get to her box,does not enjoy being with you and he quality of life is no longer, she will let you know that is the time, she needs to say a sad goodbye. I am here to talk if you need me. I undersatnd, as I too have been through this in my personal life.
You are welcome and I am here is needed. I do ask if you are asked by the site to give me a good review. They like to hear if Our customers had a good experience. Again I am here if you need to talk.
Thank you! I like to make a difference.
