So after our ordeal with Lola and her foot, waiting almost a day for the swelling to generally go down. Not all the way but a lot. We had the home vet come tonight. Roughly 36 hours post removal of the bandage. 48 hours since release from the hospital.
Lola is mostly ok. The vet thinks nothing is broken. Even if it is, they can’t do much for a cat. They can’t put it in a splint or cast. The vet said it is just too difficult with a cat so the usual treatment is to rest. That is her recommendation, for now. Rest and as long as there is a trend towards health she should be ok.
Lola is an ace at resting. She wasn’t a fan when the vet arrived. Lola jumped, fell and nose-dived slightly while trying to escape. I tried to grab her. She just moved so quickly, as soon as she smelt them she was off.
The vet checked her over and said it is probably going to be ok. Just need to keep a close eye on it.
It is good to have the reassurance from a professional. Lots of people said it would be ok but we needed to hear it from someone with some kind of training.
