My cat had a freak accident - she was chased up a tree by the neighbor's dog (the neighbor came and got me which is how I know) and apparently while the dog was at the base of the tree she lost her balance and fell about 10 feet, leaving 9 of her front claws in the tree. We rushed her to the vet and she has been on salve and antibiotics for about a week, the vet said yesterday after examining her that the claws will probably not grow back, they were broken down too far. Is there anything I can do to "encourage" them to come back? Are there any nutritional components to growing strong claws? My other cat would probably be content being an indoor cat, but this one loved to roam and play in the yard, she will be miserable. If anyone has any suggestions on helping my kitty get her claws back I would love to hear it. I did try to make her indoor when I first got her, but she just is not happy that way and much as I worry I don't feel it is fair to make her live caged up. She is only 7 years old.
