Języki publikacji



This paper describes the case of a cat affected by complex, complete and uncomplicated syndactyly of both pelvic limbs, with digital skin inflammation that could not be treated pharmacologically and caused acute pain. The patient’s distal phalanges were removed surgically. The cat did not demonstrate pain symptoms four weeks after the treatment. According to the authors’ knowledge, this is the first case of feline syndactyly in Poland and the sixth documented case of the analyzed abnormality in the world.
