      my friend called about her cat that was attacked by a dog in her yard. she has taken it to the vet but asked me to voice this question:
      the cat was grabbed by the back leg and there are puncture marks in the thigh area. these are being treated but there is also a huge bruies that has my friend worried. the vet to Xrays and said it is not broken or internal bleeding, etc. but the friend said the bruise seems to be 'moving' and is extremely hard. i am not familiar with blood clots or their actions as i have never had a cat involved in any serious accidents ( that lived, anyway) . does this seem like the norm for a clot?
      also the cat is still very lethargic and is not eating well. this could all be trauma and pain due to torn muscles, etc. but this clot that seems to be spreading/moving is a mystery.
      any ideas? she does not want to have exploritory surgery done yet.

      Yipe! I would ask the vet (and any good vet should have no problem with this) to ask a specialist. Surgical or Internal specialist. dg
