Hulk's Christmas Story
Tiny kitten Hulk was rushed to PDSA by his worried owner after he'd had an accident and it was feared he'd broken his back leg. He was in so much pain, but thankfully the vet team were able to get to work and help him straight away.
The vet gave him medicine to ease his pain and quickly set to finding out what was going on.
He was given an anaesthetic so that they could X-ray his little bones to pinpoint the problem. Sadly, the tests revealed he had a hairline fracture in his leg and a dislocated hip, which had left him in agony.
Our vet was able to help get Hulk back on his paws by skilfully putting his dislocated hip back into place. Hulk was moved back to the recovery area, where our devoted staff monitored his condition to ensure he came round OK. He was given further pain relief and anti-inflammatory medicine, and was then allowed to go back home. Strict cage rest was needed for two weeks, to allow everything to heal.
