Radial Hypoplasia

This forum is for cat lovers seeking everyday advice and suggestions on health-related issues. Remember, however, that advice on a public forum simply can't be a substitute for proper medical attention. Only your vet can say assuredly what is best for your cat.

I was just curious if anyone else here had a cat with radial hypoplasia. My cat Crook has it, and although just being a tad clumsy, I haven't seen any real draw backs. Was just wondering if anyone had or has a cat with the same condition.

i had a cat milo who had this. He was fine untill some people bullyed me into getting his leg amputated. he died shortly after surgery.

as i understand he would have been fine without it. A lession learned. only do this if the cat is in pain and cannot get around. cats with this have it since birth and are not in pain.

he should be fine

He certainly doesn't appear to be in any pain and he gets around just fine =)

How is your cat with radial hypoplasia doing? about 2 months ago I took in a stray who walks with a limp. Now I realize she has short front legs, and her left leg looks a bit deformed, sort of as if her wrist bend back to far. However, she can run up and down the stairs no problem! She just doesn't jump up on anything. She is a sweetheart.

I think she may have RH.

The radius is part of the front leg bone in the cat. Hypo-means less then and plasia reffers to formation (usually of cells)

so basicly anytime the bone dosnt grown correctly in the radius (which makes up the "forarm" along with the ulna bone) so if kitty has short 'forarms" they may have RH

I have radial hypoplasia and it doesn't slow me down at all.
