My kitten has been favoring her front leg all day and my mom finally came over to take a look at it. She has more experience with cats then I do, and she thinks the leg might be broken.
I think she fell off my bathroom counter in the middle of the night, but I didn't witness it, just heard it.
I'm working so I couldn't take the kitten to the vet but my mom is there with her right now.
My question is, what will the vet be doing to check if it's broken? And if it is what do they do then?
I assume an x-ray will be done. But I honestly have no idea. I just want to know what the baby will have to go through.
Also, what do I do when she's home? Will she have a cast of some sort? Will they give her pain killers?
Any and all info on the matter (vet process and at home care) would be super awesome.
FYI, I'm not extremely worried, don't even know if it's actually broken yet and I went through much worse with my first kitty. Just curious what the whole process is since I can't be at the vet with her.
