We love how whenever a new user joins Tripawds, community members will often point them to various places here that can help answer their questions.
In our continuing efforts to provide the best advice and support for those facing amputation for their cats and dogs, we have developed the Tripawds Required Reading List.
These links answer many of the most commonly asked questions about:
- amputation for dogs and cats
- pet cancer care and
- life on three legs
We began as a dog-centric community, but each day we are adding more information to help cats facing amputation of a limb. Thanks for your patience as we grow our Tripawd cat information knowledgebase.
This extensive list is just a small sampling of informative posts from the Tripawds Featured Blogs. Much more advice can be found by searching the Tripawds Community Discussion Forums.
