Rescued Kitten w/ a broken leg?
I rescued a kitten being mauled by 2 pitbulls Monday. It was very lethargic, face swollen, and bite marks on its face. I took it to my vet. I live in the country and this is the only vet within 80 miles. Not too pleased with him. He looks at the kitten says it has brain damage gives it a steroid shot and told me to take it home and watch it for three days and feed it through a syringe. Oh and give it another steroid shot the next day. So that’s what I did by day 2 it was doing really good and then a bad day. Now it’s doing great walking around legs are wobbly ( i thought initally it was from the brain damage) and it’s limping rt hind leg swollen. I took it back to the vet he examines it says the leg is broke gives me antibiotics and a flea pill. He also gave it a shot of something he didn’t disclose. The guy is weird doesn’t talk much and I wonder why he is a vet because he doesn’t seem to care about animals either. I’m giving the cat it’s medicine and trying to keep it as immobile as possible now. I just feel like this vet didn’t do anything. Now it’s the weekend and every vet I know of is not open. Is there anything I can do to help this poor thing. Why would he not do anything for its leg? I just don’t understand. Could I splint it and would it help?
