Sudden Limping

  1. #16

    Yep, it was very theatrical!
    Iím just glad itís looking like we wonít be heading to the vet for x-rays and such. Though I think our vet probably would have just sent us home with Ďrest up and healí instructions.
    Now for hopefully another 8 uneventful years

    The vet probably would have wanted to do x-rays if you had not gone the "wait and see" route. You saved yourself a lot of money and time.
    Keep your cats inside and safe.

    xrays only show bones, they do not see soft tissue damage

    That is why I said a vet would do it if Luv had not waited.

    I agree, for a minor strain like that the vet won't take xrays, a good doctor can usually tell if there's a strained or pulled ligament or tendon just by feeling and observation.
