Re: [FH] possible sprain or blood clot??
Is your kitty's leg swollen? Is it cold to the touch? Are all the paws the
same temperature? Can you feel a pulse? Are the breaths per minute normal
20 - 30?
If the leg is cold and swollen with no pulse then this is an emergency.
I'm sure others will chime in, let us know how he's doing.
Hugs to you and your kitty,
