only 3 more days! any advice on how the cat should be fed or treated after i pick her up from her surgery for the following days? should i make sure that her litter is completely replaced or should I leave it as is (still usable condition of course) so that she would be familiar with the scent?
I wouldn't worry too much about the litter. She'll be pretty whacked out for a few days. You'll need to watch that she doesn't pick at the incision and try to remove the stitches too soon. Are you having the pre-op bloodwork done? :?:
My Domino is getting spayed on the 29th. I'll miss not having her here for the one night! I'll be glad to get her done though, then all 6 of my babies will be fixed. Poor Domino doesn't even know what's coming up for her next week. Poor baby...
Yes, it is very important. There will be complications if they don't fast. Everytime I have one going under, I have to take up food and drink for all of mine, they take it remarkably well. Also, when you take up the food, scout around for any 'hidden' morsels lying around and keep the toilet lid down in case she tries to sneak a drink of water ( a few of mine have a 'thing' for the toilet :? ) good luck.
don't know about the pain meds, none of mine ever had them. :?
She should be back to normal in a few days, I'm sure the vet will fill you in on what to watch for and how to feed, it's been over 5 years since my youngest was spayed and I can't remember the details.
