i have a male, neutered cat, aged 21 months. he was born with swimmers syndrome but after physiotherapy, he improved a lot. five months ago all that changed. his legs became much worse and he started to hide a lot.
i have had him checked over several times and the vet could find nothing wrong with him. tonight he came in covered in faeces, very hard poo that was stuck to his leg and is very reluctant to walk much. what can i do! im frantic with worry!
please respond as soon as possible! im terrified here!
i am now. sorry im in the uk and the response came through too late for me
could you message me when you are free to chat? it is urgent
it says our chat has ended but we havent had it yet!
hi, it says we have finished our chat!
thank you for your response. ron has no chest compression at all, his breathing is perfectly normal. as for the rest, i think you might be right and that he is in pain but doesnt cry when i pick him up. do these cats have a normal life expectancy? my vet seems to think that he has a neurological condition that might be a brain tumour but i dont think that can be right. he has pretty much always had leg difficulties and they do get worse when he is growning
thank you so much. he is going in for an xray and bloods on friday and we will try to get his bowels working before we go any further. thank you for all your help and i will be in touch x
