Is artificial leg available for cats

I have cat whos all 4 legs are amputed to half of its length.

It may have servived some accident. I don't know. I found the cat in that situation.

I took him to doctor and carring for last 1 and half month.

His wounds are getting cured.

But he can't walk. can't even hop.

Is there any way to fit him with artificial legs so that he can atleast stand and walk?

I am in Pune, India. Any information is hinghly appreciated.

It doesn't sound like an insurmountable problem, it would depend on the cat and how adaptable it is. You should also ask yourself what kind of quality of life will the animal have? It might be kinder to euthanize it, rather than subject it to the stresses that are in store for it.

That is something you should ask your vet, I would say it probably is but I dont know, Bob, it isnt in pain so having it pts would be an expensive situation and the vet wouldnt want to go through with it, but I agree, it is something you should consider

Pain is not the only thing to consider when talking about quality of life.

I am sure it is possible to have some company make some legs but I would think putting him to sleep to spare him anymore pain and a low quality of life.
