Stupid question about cage rest

(5 Posts)

BorpCat1 is at vet now for X-rays (suspected ligature damage to knee), may have to be on cage rest for a while. My stupid question is: will I have to buy a cage (if so where from? how big?), or will I be able to borrow or rent a cage from the vet?

I'm sure some vets have cages you can rent/borrow. But you can only know if yours does by asking them. If you need to buy then you need a large dog crate from Pets at Home or any online pet sites. Something like this:

You can fit a small litter tray and a bed inside.

You can get them a lot cheaper from Amazon or eBay.

Also they come up used on gumtree fairly often.

We got one like that Argos one - I figured if sod's law means we've spent £50 on something that never gets used again, fine. Absolutely fine. I'd pay far more for a guarantee of no more cage rest, ever.

(Also ligament damage, surgery a year ago today, Facebook is going to start reminding what 'fun' cage rest was)
