Re: Paralysis in both hind legs

:whale: I couldn't agree more about stopping the chewing, and one of my boys had to take gabapentin several times until the nerves settled down. He, too, was chewing.

People still like to run their mouths, especially about disabilities, but if you're happy and she's happy, it's nobody else's business.

Re: Freak Accident: Can a Cat Live Without a Tongue?

Amazing story! I had a foster boy once who'd had his jaw blown off, but he still had at least a good bit of his tongue, somehow.

Re: Acute non-compressive nucleus pulposus extrusion

:whale: In general, recovery from spinal cord injuries can slowly continue for months to a year or 2. Is hydrotherapy possible? People have used hot tubs, swimming pools, natural bodies of water, and even watering tubs for stock animals to do so.

Re: Hind limb paralysis after fho surgery

Thanks. Y'all too!

I had a little girl, Tristalyn, who had a brachial nerve injury from being hit by a car. I was about to order her a splint when she suddenly started getting better. She eventually had a full recovery and was adopted as a normal cat.
