I was asked about broken hips & legs by a woman in Turkey (in the Turkish forum)..This lady found her 5 months old porch kitten (actually one living in the streets but fed & cared by this lovely woman) hit by a car & left with broken back legs & a hip ! She took him to a vet & vet told her that there is nothing to do other than waiting for the bones to fuse naturally ! But by being a "teenager" kitty living in streets, there's no way that the bones will fuse by themselves !! They might even hurt his kidneys or something ?? This lady took the cat to some other vets & some of them told her that they can do the operation for the hip ! But of course money is a biiig issue (especially in Turkey) ! I gave this lady as best advice as I could, but I wonder if I am missing something & if I can give her more ?? Does anyone have any ideas or give me some advice about this ??
