A. Recovery may depend on if the nerves in the area are still functioning, and could be checked with neurologic testing. Joint supplements and physical therapy may also help to improve muscle tone and condition and provide some mobility. In the worst case, if the legs are not functioning, a pet "wheelchair" may be able to help increase some mobility to your cat depending on how severely impacted mobility is right now.
