My Cat Broke His Tail?!? Help?!?
Okay, I'll Make A Long Story Short:
Child A And Child B Were Playing (Well, Sort Of). Child A Ran Into The Bathroom, Trying To Get Away From Child B, So Slammed The Door Shut At Fast As He Could, But Didn't Realize Our Cat (Very Tiny And Slender, Not Hard To Miss) Was Going Through. The Cat Gave A Bloody Murder Scream So Animated And Violent I Didn't Think Possible For A Cat To Vocalize, So Was Obviously In Pain. The Tail Was In A *Completely Shut* Door For No Longer Than 3 Seconds (Child A Had A Delayed Reaction As To Who Was Actually Screaming, And Panicked Trying To Get The Door Unlocked). The About The 1/3 Point Near The End Of The Tail, It Is Bent, An Likely Snapped. The Cat Isn't Being Mean (Surprisingly) But Doesn't Want To Be Comforted, And Tries To Get Away If You Hold Him. He's Sitting Under The Couch. I Know There's Probably Not A Cast You Can Put On A Tail (Just Like If I Broke My Toe), But Is There Anything I Can Do To Comfort Him And Soothe The Pain Until I Can Get Him To The Vet Tomorrow Morning? Also, It's Not Visibly Cut Or Bloody, But Should I Do Something To Prevent It From Getting Infected? Also Are There Any 24 Hour Online (Free) Vet Chats Or Something Like That? Thanks.
Is there a 24-hour vet you can take him to? A cat's tail is its spinal cord. It's very, very painful, and there's no painkillers you can give him which will ease it that you could measure correctly without risking killing him. The tail will need to be amputated as spinal cord can't heal on its own. I *strongly* recommend you find a 24-hour vet to avoid any longer-term damage if you can, and just get your cat some pain relief. Try the phone book, or calling a vet you know is closed to see if they have an out-of-hours emergency advice message.
My cat broke his tail in a similar door-jam accident a couple of years back but he's fine now and living a happy and fulfilling life with a stump, which he wiggles when he gets mad. It's very cute.
Is There A 24 Hour Vet Hotline?
If you live in a bigger city, they usually have emergency vet clinics that are open when normal vets aren't. If there's no emergency clinic nearby, your regular vet probably checks their voicemail in the off hours to handle emergencies. If you call during the off hours their answering machine should direct you.
Is My Vet A Quack? (Regarding Feline Immunodeficiency Virus)?
Anyone Who Is Familiar With Fiv, This Is What Happened To My Cat:
She Lost 5Lbs In About A Month Or Two, And Her Coat Is Mangy And Matted While She Used To Be A Beautiful Long Haired Cat. Other Than That She Is Great: Appetite On Point, Energy Level High, Affectionate.
I Took Her To The Vet (In A New Area Since I Recently Moved) And He Did Blood Work On Her. It Came Back Fiv+. He Told Me It Was In The &Quot;Dry&Quot; Form And When It Developed Into &Quot;Wet&Quot; Form Her Stomach Would Swell And She Would Die. With Some Research, I Found That This Is Typically The Case For Fip, Which Is Different Than Fiv. I Have Seen The Paperwork, It Is Not A Matter Of Confusion: She Definitely Has Fiv, Not The Other One. Plus He Kept Referring To It As A Virus Where As Fip Is A Disease.
Now, I Have Had A Cat With Fiv When I Was Younger And From My Understanding It Resembles Hiv: You Don'T Die From The Virus, You Die From What Your Immune System Can'T Fight Off.
Is My Vet Confused Or Simply Uneducated? Am I Confused? Can Someone Clear This Up For Me? I'M Not Quite Sure What To Expect From My Cat Because I Don'T Know If I Have The Right Information.
Both FIV and FIP are viral infections, but they don't belong to the same group of viruses. (FIP is a coronavirus, whereas FIV is a retrovirus) I don't honestly know how your vet could have become confused because the symptoms are not even the same.
You summed up FIV in a nutshell when you said "you don't die from the virus, you die from what your immune system can't fight off." Many cats infected with FIV can live a good quality of life for a number of years and the virus won't necessarily ever cause clinical disease. Whether disease develops depends on many factors including the strain of FIV a cat is infected with, the cat's immune response' and the presence or absence of other infectious agents. Interestingly in one study, FIV-infected cats were found to survive just under 5 years on average (from the time their disease was diagnosed) compared with about 6 years for a similar group of non-infected cats.
This is a really good article on FIV.
There's also a Yahoo support group for owners of FIV cats and that would be a good place to learn from other owners' experiences.
Personally, I wouldn't use that vet again. If your cat should become sick, could you ever really have full confidence that they are doing the very best for your cat? Ask cat owning neighbours, work colleagues etc., whom they would recommend. Cat rescues usually have working relationships with local vets so they could probably recommend a good one to you.
Hope you have him for many years to come.
Vet Prices For Feline Abscess?
My 2 Year Old Female Cat Has Developed A Large (Roughly Golf Ball Sized) Abscess On Her Hind Leg. I Have Been Doing Hot Compresses On It Every Few Hours For The Last 24 Hours But No Luck Yet On Getting It To Drain. Im Not Currently In The Best Financial Situation And Am Trying To Avoid Going To The Vet Especially Since This Has Happened Once Before On Another Cat I Owned And It Healed Just Fine With Lots Of Peroxide, Neosporin, And Daily Hot Compresses To Drain The Pus. However, If It Come Down To It And I Need To Get Her To The Vet, What Are The Prices You All Have Experienced In Order To Lance And Drain An Abscess. I Have Read Prices Everywhere From $40 To $1100. What Have You Seen?
I'm so sorry. Those abscesses are so awful!
The price will not only vary depending on the Vet, but also on the area it is located.
I paid $65 to have one drained. It was on her shoulder. The only reason I had it taken care of at the vet, was that she had been spayed and was wearing a collar. I've had many of them on male cats because of fighting, and they have always done fine on their own.
Hope she gets better soon!
Can A Vet Make A House Call? Or How Can I Take My Cat To The Vet Without Stressing Her Out?
I Just Got A Cat About 2 Months Ago Who Was Abused By Her Owner, So She'S Now Very Timid. I Don'T Think She Could Take The Stress From A Long Car Ride, Sitting In The Office With Other Animals & Having A Vet Examine Her (She'S Absolutely Terrified Of Men) She Came To Us Very Skinny/ Poor & I Initially Gave Her Some Wet Cat Food Which Made Her Sick For Some Reason (Vomiting, Diarrhea Etc..) So I Then Switched Her To Regular Dry Food, Which She Does Keep Down But She Doesn'T Seem To Be Putting On Any Weight & Still Has Some Occasional Diarrhea. I'M Not Really Sure What I Should Do At This Point.
Most Vets will make house calls but they charge a lot to do so. I would take her to the office. Since she is only 2 months old it will be the first of many trips.
Many cats are scared to go there. My 18 year old cat has been more times than I can remember but he still vomits when I put him in the carrier.
It occurs to me that she might have worms.
I Need To Contact A House Vet ?
I Need The Phone Number For The House Vet That Does 7 Dollar House Calls Im In Flint Mi 48506 And My Bunnie Is Need For A Vet And Mt Min Pincher But Cant Find A Cheap House Vet
You are not going to find any vet to go to your house for $7.00. That would barely cover the gas and the wear and tear on their vehicle.
A basic office visit is about $40.00 and a typical house call is $100.00 plus for whatever procedures are done and medications given. The vet may charge for only the one visit for both animals.
Veterinarians are DOCTORS and they deserve to get properly paid for their knowledge and skills.
Here is a site that might help with some of your needs, but this is not for a house call vet:
If your animals need veterinary care and you cannot afford it the correct thing to do is quickly find a no-kill shelter to which you can surrender your dog and rabbit.
