- Here is some information.
Cindi missing the touch of Ditto
There she was, elegant, beautiful, swathed in the shiniest of clinging
silks, a vision of loveliness in coffee and cream --- a Princess from
Bangkok, an Oriental Goddess, a Queen on her throne --- a Siamese cat!

- Did the vet not also put him on Heparin? You should talk to them about it.
When my cat had saddle thrombus everyone said euthanize. But my vet did a old school treatment of DMSO and saline injected in to each hind leg artery. He had blood flow back in a few days and we did a second treatment 3 days later. It took 2 months for him to walk normally. But I bought a brace to help him walk from ortho vet. But if it wasn't for the DMSO treatment my Baxter wouldn't have made it. I have to treat him once every 2 months because he keeps getting clots. I can't give Plavix because it makes him ill and throw up.
I really hope your baby gets better, but have patience and understand that the nerve damage can take 6 weeks to heal.
