Mews journey through post amp/cancer

Hello all,

I’m updating just in case anyone else has a similar issue. After my vet and I ruled out food allergies and switched her clay litter to silica gel litter, we started her on gabapentin to rule out phantom limb pain and medicated pads to wipe the foot area in case it was a yeast infection. After about a month, Mew was finally starting to leave her foot alone!

I stopped the pads, then after stopped the gabapentin and she’s continued to leave her foot alone! Which makes me think perhaps something got stuck in between her toes, the licking made her get an infection, which in turn made the itchiness worse. I will be watching her closely but for now I’m happy she’s better and Mew is happy she is cone-free! Finally!

Hi all,

Mew has been struggling with a foot bleeding issue for some time now. The vets are lost as to what other reason it could happen besides bumping herself. I have tested her for food allergies and made sure her current food is fit for her. I’ve changed her litter type, wiped her foot after she used it. She seems to overgroom it which scrapes off her layer of skin. Being as it’s on her back leg, I’m trying every possible solution and perhaps take her to another vet for another opinion since she never had this issue before pre-amputation. Here’s hoping we get to the bottom of this soon.
