1086. Update & Review: Maine Coon slightly pinker gums - goes home today Saturday

Saturday Aug 17, 2013

An unusual challenging case
Maine Coon, MN, 5 years
On Aug 8, 2013, owner complained the cat was behaving strangely. Wanted to hide under the table but can walk. Limped on left hind limb. Had fallen from a height when held by a girl around 2 days ago.

Aug 8, 2013.  Examination
Lethargy. Thin at 8.1 kg but no fever.
Pallor (white gums)
Left nasal discharge
Swollen prepuce (can't see the penis)

Very painful area between and behind the shoulders and also above the kidney area and tail area. Advised strict confinement in a cage but no cage.

Aug 11, 2013
Very quiet but not as bad as on Aug 8. Ate less. Walked a lot in the kitchen area.
