She was given Anafen 5 mg. and the dose is 7mg once daily with food.  It's 
Ketoprofen, in the same family as Advil I believe.  Actually Bob and I were 
just able to easily get the 2 pieces of pill in her.  I had a syringe of water 
and squirted enough down her throat to get it down.  She's now getting her eyes 
cleaned without any difficulty.  I think the poor little thing is just too worn 
out to fight.  She has been drinking water and ate some food a little while 
ago.  The pills had to be given with food.  I doubt I'll give her any more pain 
reliever if she seems much better tomorrow.  I just figured she may be in pain 
now because it has been 24 hours since her injection for pain.

        Lynne, it took mine a day to recover from the surgery but they were 
younger than Snowy.  The raspy voice could be due to the anesthetic.  Mine are 
generally ticked off at me after a vet visit and want to be left alone.  I had 
Stormie in for vaccines Monday.  She spent the rest of the day hiding behind 
the sofa.  

        If I remember correctly the vet said to offer water and a small amount 
of food after the neutering surgery.  What pain med did the vet give you?  
Please do not give Snowy Metacam.  It is only FDA approved for a single shot 
for cats.  Oral doses cause approx. 30% to go into acute kidney failure.  There 
are other pain meds for kitties without the risk of ARF.

        Glad she is home.

          For those of you have had female cats, at what point should I be 
alarmed about their health.  Snowy was spayed today.  The vet said all went 
well.  She seemed very pleased and ok on the way home.  Since then she has 
become very somber, with her mouth slightly open and I swear I can hear a 
raspiness in her throat.  She won't even let me touch her and has retreated to 
upstairs.  She has had some drinks of water, a lot actually when we first got 
home.& nbsp; My vet is not available this evening and my only alternative is to 
take her to the emergency clinic which I hate with a pasion.  The vet there is 
a complete jerk.  The fact that he couldn't put BooBoo to sleep fast enough has 
a lot to do with it. I just don't know if this is normal behaviour for after 
this kind of surgery or something is very wrong.  She looks angry or in pain.  
I can't give her any pain medication until tomorrow morning.  They gave her an 
injection before we left today. I've put in a call to her foster mother hoping 
she can give me some advice but of course the way things go she isn't home.
