You have a vet appointment coming up, please try not to worry until then. You are doing all the right things, taking her to the vets to get her checked out again.

Everything will be fine, I am sure of it. The vets know what they are doing! :)

I'm sorry Tigger won't let you touch her leg, is she on painkillers? You are doing everything you can.
The antibiotics will hopefully stop the infection.
Hugs for Tigger and you

she;s on painkillers, the pain seems to flare up suddenly, i trying not to let her jump anywhere just until the vet sees her, she will jump but at the cost of that being one of the triggers for her leg pain 😟

It is difficult to keep them contained though isn't it. You are certainly doing all the right things, everything you can to help Tigger get better.

Trying to stop Tigger from jumping is like trying to stop a birdie from flying .....

How long has Tigger been on the antibiotics and painkillers? Animals are difficult to care for when poorly.
Hoping she gets better soon.

sounds like tigger is having a rough time but hopefully she will heal up soon and the vet will know how to help her in her recovery.
Tigger's under v** orders to rest the leg (not that she listens)

we just got back, Tigger got to stay on the medication she's on

her leg was getting better but the cold and wet seems to be making it all sore again, has she likely had arthritis injected into her leg? :(

I'd ask the vet about arthritis, it can't have been injected in. I'd take her back to the vet if her leg is hurting again.
Hope she gets better soon.

Hi @midnight - has Tiggers leg improved any?

Arthiris doesn't develop that way, so you don't have to worry there.
When it's cold and wet it seems to start to hurt her again, this morning it doesnt seem to be a hurt, the sun is out so she's running around with Willow at the moment playing a very energetic game of chasies and bounce around looking for bed mousies 😻
