2. A cat fell 6 storeys and broke her leg.

Mar 28, 2016

TP 46233
Cat, female, not spayed, 7 months, fell from 3 storeys yesterday.
X ray by Vet 1. Vet 1 refers to Vet 2 quoting $3,000 surgery fees as screws are needed.
Came to Toa Payoh Vets for 2nd opinion. 

Fracture repair surgery costs from $1,000. In this case, the fracture is more complicated as it is near to the femoral head and will require screws and wires to join the broken pieces. If it is mid-femoral fracture, an intramedullary pin and cast will do and this will be much cheaper.

As cat is growing, osteoarthritis may result after the surgery.  So, the owner has to decide on what to do.
