Tigger Bounces Back
Tigger came to us following a severe road traffic accident with multiple injuries.
He had several pelvic fractures as well as broken foot but his main problem was a compression of his spinal cord causing him extreme pain and weakness on his back legs. We stabilised him for several days with fluid therapy and pain killers and gradually the pressure released from his spinal cord and the pain reduced. Over several weeks of rest and medication Tigger became pain free and has now returned to his normal active self. He is a good example of how modern medicines and rest can allow some of the most severe injuries to heal without invasive surgery. Although his pelvis will always be slightly deformed he is as active as before and has no mobility problems.
Cats are very good healers and with appropriate care and treatment usually heal very quickly! Hence their reputation for having 9 lives !!
