I woke up limping today and wasn't putting weight on my front right leg. I didn't even want to go on our morning walk! Dad immediately made an appointment for me to see the Vet at 11:00am, which happened to be the exact time my kitten brother Enzo and kitten sister Melody had an appointment for another round of vaccinations. As it turned out, Dad ended up having to go to work to take care of a crisis, so Mom ended up having to take us to our appointments.
I was so excited to see the vet and had to walk up and down the hall so she could see my limp. Then she took my temperature, which was normal, and had me lay down on my side so she could examine my right leg. She couldn't feel any swelling up and down my leg and I didn't seem to feel any discomfort until she checked my paw. She then shaved some of the fur around my paw and then noticed that it was red. Although she couldn't see any cuts, she took a culture and found that I had alot of yeast, and determined I have an infection. It was just about then when one of the technicians brought my kitties to the room in the carrier and I was happy to see them!
So, I am on antibiotics and anti-inflammatory meds and within hours of taking my first dose, I put weight on my right leg and even went for a walk with my Dad and Cosmo. Hopefully, I will be all better real soon!
