I have a 9yo Siamese cat named Orion.
I have a tall bed, And Both my cats have always had no problem jumping up~Until about ago, When for about 1 week Orion started hit at his torso and clawing the rest of the way up.
I thought he was just acting up until one morning I noticed his thigh was bulging... and he was slightly limping.
I took him to the vet the next day, Where the nurse tried getting him out of his cage while pulling on his rear legs! I immediately stopped her and took over. Then the vet hardly looked him over and just said he needed x-rays and left.
Nurse comes back with financial papers, Asking to proceed (I did) then took him away to do X-Rays.
Nurse comes back showing me x-rays on her computer, possible growth in his side and saying they would have to do needle/lab tests. Providing no other information.
Nurse comes back with massive financial sign-off on testing which I could not afford... Especially on top of the already expensive visit. My visit was then over...
I left feeling sick, and ripped off.
I was able to get a copy of his X-Rays, Which I had to request and pay an extra $10 for.
They gave me a "Fancy" CD-Rom with Orions X-Rays on it, To only be viewed on a computer.
After talking with Friends and Family, And looking over the X-Rays~We decided to just keep a close eye on him and pray for him to get well at home.
It's been about a month since his vet visit, And I feel he is losing weight and almost always sleeping/lying down + His limp is getting worse. It's painful for just me seeing him walk so badly.
He does not seem to have any pain from the hip area, And has never shown any since it started besides limping.
His brother is starting to act upset, And I'm entirely at a loss as to what to do anymore... I cant even find any answers online.
I'll post up X-Rays as soon as I can.
