Could someone advise me please.
My darling 7 week kitten Ginger which I've had for a month now started limping on Friday. I was only out for an hour or so and when I got back her back right ankle? was swollen so I took her to the vets. He said she probably twisted it and to give it a couple of days for the swelling to go down and then come back.
She is currently in the process of weaning as well.
I took her back Sunday as I had my husband with me to translate.
The vet took an x-ray, nothing broken and then gave me some Hills a/p for her to eat (she's eaten half a can just today!)
He suspects she might have some kind of virus as when I found her a month a go (she found us ) she had an infected right eye and was sneezing.
We have to take her back in ten days.
She is all stiff in the morning and by the afternoon will rest her foot on the ground but gives a shrill little meow if you should touch anywhere on that leg.
Have you any experience in treating/caring for a kitten with what I think is Calici virus, should I prepare my young son for the worst?
