      yes, I've read it over and over, and when Max got the clot a couple of weeks ago I massaged it and the vet said I did just what he would have done, so I think it's important to keep the blood circulating in the limb and prevent it dying and having to be amputated. I was also a little worried about dislodging a clot which might then strike somewhere else, but it's the commonly recommended treatment...Judi and Max

      Interesting, I've never heard of massaging a leg with a blood clot. Have others done this with cats? In people, you're never supposed to massage a leg with clots as they can dislodge and travel to the lungs and/or brain.

      Just curious.

      I don't know, i'd probably get him checked out. I know with Tinkerbelle (front leg clot) they told me to do massage therapy on it every four hours, massage the entire leg and paws to keep the circulation going. I also take her in for acupuncture. But i would call the vet
