Have we noticed that our 4-legged friend is limping? Are you complaining? Are you having trouble walking? Well, what could it depend on? The kitten has a broken paw? Let's see how to notice this possible problem and what first steps we can take to ensure that it can be re-established.
Kitten with broken paw: how to notice?
The relationship with a pet it is not a trivial matter. It is well known how important it is to stay behind your 4-legged friends, take care of them and observe them daily. Studying and understanding them will allow us to realize, in case of need, how to help them restore health.
Even more so when puppies are very young, it is essential to follow their every step and teach them, together with their mother, to approach the world slowly. Coexistence with a cat is never easy, indeed we must prepare to make a lot of efforts to win his trust and make us consider his friends.
What is all this for? If there is any health problem, some difficulty in movement, etc., we will have to be good at picking it up as soon as possible, in order to solve it before it gets worse.
Let's see some symptom which makes us notice a kitten with a broken paw.
The cat is, by nature, a very animal curious and lively, who loves being outdoors, discovering new places, jumping from one side to the other without fear. However, this can often cause bad falls, strong blows, especially from little ones, when the kittens are not yet fully aware of the body and movements.
If we notice that our kitten suddenly limps, we should immediately worry: what can this depend on? A dislocation, or worse, one paw break.
The kitten will complain often, he will suffer greatly from the pain caused by the fracture, which can generally lead to a swelling of the broken part.
How do you express your pain as well as complaints? He could have fear of being touched at that point, fearing even stronger pangs, or it could escape on our first move towards him e tremble for the fear that he could be hurt.
The cat cares a lot about his privacy and often needs his space: even more so in cases where he suffers from something. So, if he is absent, he hides, being very scared, we should be good at knowing how to treat him in the right way, making him understand that we are there to help him.
First aid: what to do?
How could we, owners, help our 4-legged friend to regain his stability and heal the broken paw?
The first useful tip of all is to take him to the vet. We try to get closer to the cat very calmly e patience: once reached, wrap it very slowly and gently in a towel and take it in clinic.
If we want to try to medicate it at the moment, we will have to pay close attention to the actions to be carried out. Fractures can often result from accidents or bad falls: first of all, then, we will check if there are any wounds severe obvious. In this case, it would be advisable to dab and disinfect so as not to risk the cat licking and getting further infections, or losing too much blood.
After disinfecting with special products (there are also specific ones for animals), it will be necessary to put a sterile gauze and invent a way to lock it in order to prevent the cat from taking it off after 5 minutes. Band-aids, or simply socks, can do for us!
The cat will certainly not be happy with all these constraints: be careful not to jerk it hard (if you need to let someone help you), not to cause other injuries and make the situation worse.
Let's move with delicacy And caution: it is all momentary because then it will be our trusted veterinarian who will take care of treating our friend with the necessary equipment, certainly suitable for the situation.
This little help from us could benefit our little friend. Everything in our power must be done to help him get better and fully regain his motor activity.
