Saddle Thrombus – Feline Hind Leg Paralysis

25 Comments »


In early August 2008, Candy began to walk with a swagger in his rear legs. Favoring one side then the other. It became progressively worse to the point that by 8/10/2008 he was dragging his hind quarters. He was taken to several vets who ran tests, but could not explain what was wrong with him.

I went to Yahoo Answers and typed in feline paralysis back legs in their search engine and did the same at Google and found descriptions of exactly the same symptoms he was exibiting.

Caudal aortic thrombus (saddle thrombus) is caused by an underlying congestive heart condition. Pieces of the aging heart tear off and travel through the body. In Candy’s case, it was the hind legs that were affected. It’s a common disease among older cats, too. Candy is 13 years old and my vet told me that’s around 80 years in a human.

Other symptoms are blue pads and toes on the rear legs and no pulse (femoral pulse) in the rear legs. The legs will feel cold to the touch because no blood is flowing through them.

Today, August 16th, 2008, I will talk to his vet about this and if he does have saddle thrombus, I will have him put down. He’s in pain and he won’t get better.

Treatments include a blood thinner called warfarin, but with Candy’s advanced feline leukemia and AIDS also damaging his body, it’s kinder to put him to sleep. I will miss him forever.

—-
At 9:00 a.m. today (8/16/08), I had Candy put to sleep. He suffers no more. I will miss you for the rest of my life, Candy. I love you.

Peruvian Guinea Pig , Turtles, Syrian Teddybear Hamster, Lionhead Bunny Cage Updates

24 Comments »

Another request: Here is a small tour of just one room where some of my critters reside.

I revised Queen Phoebe & Princess Nyah’s guinea pig cage. They were getting very lazy so I added a second story. They used to have a second story and loved it. I dont know why I went back to a one story. This time they will have to go upstairs to eat their hay, food & treats. Their sleeping quarters and potty is downstairs. As soon as it was done,they scurried up and checked it all out, found their hay, food and treats, and had their fill.

I had to put my 3 yellow bellied slider turtles in a 20 gallon long tank, as they were the smallest and the 2 larger ones in the 50 gallon. Tucker, the biggest was caught trying to eat Meenie’s head – so I had to get Meenie outta there.

Then there is Toby’s cage, new Syrian Teddybear hamster’s double cage. I put 2 ‘My first home’ hamster cages together and made a 3 story cage for him. He loves it, of course. 2 Ramps, spinner wheel, 2 food bowls, sleeping hut, potty.

Then, not much about Kasper, the lionhead bunny, except, he lost out on his hammock – as that went to the guinea pigs to use as a step up to their 2nd story. Kasper only uses his indoor pen to sleep in, because he loves the patio all day and has another cage out there. What a life.

The video would have been too long to show the huge cockatiel cage, Keiko’s (quaker parrot) cage & playstand. But that was pretty much covered in my other vids.

ONE LAST NOTE,, FOR ALL YOU SMALL CRITTER LOVER, THE BEST THING TO USE FOR CLEAN UP IS WHITE VINEGAR MIXED WITH WATER. Put that in a spray bottle. That cleans up any urine and poop and will not harm you little ones.
