Hi,my cat has a fractured left lower jaw,I am getting him operated on tomorrow but just wondering if anyone else has gone through this with their cat. How did they recover etc. He is acting pretty normal but is obviously on pain medication, he is only a young cat and is healthy and fit.
Thank you
Nat

Sorry Nat, I haven't had that experience before but as he is it & healthy I would expect 100% recovery

How is he doing, Natscats?  Recovering, I hope.

Simba is going ok, had the operation and was very hard to repair it but the vet managed it!
He is eating but not chewing his food still, I give him kitten biscuits as they are very small so it's easier for him.
It was a very long recovery process for him but he was amazing during it!

That's good, glad he's recovering.  He may never be able to eat harder foods but at least you still have him and he's well.  How did he do it?

Thanks everyone Unfortunately my St. Bernard Winnie jumped on him trying to attack him! I've since had a door put in my hallway to keep them alll completely seperate.

Oh that's a shame.  It's still good to know that Simba is recovered

Even a friendly dog that size can be a disaster for a cat!
