If you care for an elderly, injured or special needs pet, you've come to the right place!
Hello everyone I'm so glad I've found such a useful website out there with so much information!
Last week (9th August) my 9 month old kitten lulu got spooked by a dog when she was playing in the bushes and ran the wrong way into a road instead of home. Luckily she is microchipped and a lovely motorist who saw the accident took her straight to a local vets who scanned her and called us right away.
Hew hind right leg was so badly damaged that it was amputated on the Thursday (11th Aug) and my little baby was sent home the following day all stitched up with 10 days worth of antibiotics and painkillers. Now a week on, the antibiotics are drawing out any infection so she's a little gooey but is slowly getting there, I'm just so happy that she's alive!!
Does anyone have any advise or tips or anything that I need to keep an eye on while she heals and recovers?
Thank you for Your support
Hi Sarah. Welcome to you and baby Lulu. I know the thought of this is ripping your heart out - it is so hard to see our babies go through things we feel we have no control over. I was trying to find some posts about this situation here that would be helpful to you and ended up going out on the web to find this helpful bit of advice. Not included here, but I also read that younger cats seem to deal with this type of injury even better. Here you go. We have many lovely cat caretakers here who, I am sure, will chime in soon. Ask any questions you have and we would love a picture of Lulu!
