Problem with back legs on my cat

by donna
(Jax fl)

my cat back legs are very bad he cannot stand and now his hair is falling out on the back paws. Vet said heart attack but I think it is something else. He eats well and every else is normal.

Answer by Kate
well the vet should know I would think. Why do you think it is something else?

Sounds like your cat is in a bad way, if a cat can't walk then it will not be able to live a full cat life and this will be very distressing for it. Plus you will have lots of difficulty dealing with toilet issues.

I have not had much experience with heart attacks with cats and so I cannot say whether or not he will recover to walk again, I hope so. But again you must take your vets advice as they will have the most knowledge about this condition.
best wishes Kate
