I responded to this last night, but forgot to erase all the mail attached and it was not deliverable - too large.
The clot was more likely in the artery that branches to each hind leg, makes them unable to move them. I've had many cats with this condition, always happened at night, weekend, when my vet wasn't available. Each time, the cat was euthanized at an emergency clinic - some screamed in pain, others didn't. The last one was found in one of our large cat condos for feral/semi feral cats a few years ago in the morning, not able to move. Corgi was feral cat and I had to throw a towel over him to catch him - he pulled himself around by front legs. My vet dissolved his clot, after being confined in a small area for recuperation about a month, I was able to introduce him to a sweet group of cats - now he is the most lovable, affectionate cat, all cats adore him. He has a slight limp on one hind leg, but that's all. Natalie Subject: Re: [Felvtalk] What could it be? My Shadow was not FELv, he had a blood clot on his spine. _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org
