leg problems

Post by Rhona » Tue Jan 02, 2007 11:27 am

sapphire had a scrap with someone lastnight and has two big puncture holes in her front left hand, its very swollen but not broken she just doesnt want to put and weight on it although she can. we got her down the vets first thing where our vet agreed its not broken and he cant see any loss on movement as she was trying to grip his finger, so we thought it best to give her something for the pain and cover her with antibiotics. the only thing is i have her set up in the cat carrier to restrict her movements but would you recomend leaving her there for a couple of days and let her rest or put her back with her mates?
