Toby's foot is swollen!!

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Poor thing. He looks hideous!

He doesnt act like hes in pain or anything, it is just really swollen!! Possibility he got bit by something??

Bite, sting.... umm... infection from a small scratch/scrape/bite. It could be anything, I suppose. But I'd watch very, very carefully, because of how well they hide pain. Chili had a life-threatening fever that our vet was shocked she didn't die twice over from, and she acted normally.

check his little foot, between his pad and make sure nothing is stuck in there. If the swelling gets worse i would give an emergency vet a call and find out the dosing for benadryl. i hope he gets better soon.

About 4 years my Pretty Lady came in from outside with a very swollen foot. She didn't act like she was in any pain, but we rushed her to the emergency vet. Turned out she had been bitten by a bee? or bug and she was having an allergic reaction. If I remember correctly, they gave her a steroid shot and something like benadryl.

I'd take him into the vet... my neighbor's cat had this happen - paw swelled and he wouldn't walk on it... my neighbor took the kitty into the vet and they opened the paw but couldn't find anything (this was after xrays and such of course), but they flushed it all out in case an extremely tiny piece of glass or wood, etc was in there and sewed him up - to my knowledge he's been fine since then... but if your kitty goes outside or even just can get into things in like the basement or garage, you have no idea what he could have stepped on and you don't want to risk infection!

Wow, you sure don't have much luck when it comes to your cats do you. You've had so many die, get hurt or sick. How disheartening.

Oh, I'm so glad - I was worried you might lose him, too! You've had SO many losses lately, that would be really sad.

Hun FYI..I am not arguing with you. Just that you didn't have a clue what Jenny was talking about.

I know that, we were just pointing out that you've had more than one loss.

Haven't we all had losses before? I don't think that was the point of her posting this thread... she was worried about Toby... who is better now and that's what matters right?

Uhm, I was the one that mentioned her previous losses AFTER stating that I was glad Toby's doing better.

Now I'm trying to figure out why this has turned into an apparent argument!

So much for trying to be positive! NEVERMIND!

Of course...and everyone said they were glad Toby was better.

I was just trying to explain why others had pointed out that she had a few losses, since there seemed to be some confusion.
