7626RE: [FH] saddle thrombisis
- Oct 6, 2002Generally I think it's because when blood leaves the heart, it travels
downward in the body. I would imagine that it is possible for a clot to
travel all the way down and return back up, but a majority of the time the
clot lodges in the hindquarter area.
I agree though, if your cat is still having trouble with the right front paw
it is likely another cause. Perhaps while his front legs were affected, he
tripped or fell and injured the leg. I'd have the vet take another look at

Blood clots in cats most often head towards the rear of the cat. No one is
sure why this is so.
But, a clot can follow any artery & end up lodged pretty much anywhere.
Clots in the front legs are not common, but they happen.
Are you certain that blood clots are causing the symptoms you see?
