I have a 3 month old kitten, named Loli, she was hit by a car last night and I am pretty sure her back right leg is broken. My regular vet is out of
town this weekend and everywhere else I've called (emergency vets) just their exam fee is $100. That doesn't include xrays, a splint or cast, and
medicines. I just really can't afford it right now and I don't have a credit card. I just recently moved, last week, so every bit of money I had was
spent on moving into the new house. My regular vet would allow me to make payments, but I don't know if it is ok to wait until tomorrow to try to set
I have been looking up information online but can't find anything definite about how to splint it myself. She doesn't seem to be in too much pain,
she is eating and drinking water occasionally, but she has mostly just laid in one spot since it happened. When she does get up to walk, she doesn't
put any weight on that leg and her foot is swollen.
Has anyone here ever had to splint a kitten's leg before? Or would it be ok to wait until tomorrow to take her to the vet? Also, is there anything
over the counter I can give her for pain? From what I've read, most everything is toxic to cats. Oh me, I'm so worried about her.
If anyone can help me, I would appreciate it so much. I am so sad because I feel so helpless for her. I don't want her to be suffering.
