Lynne, I know it is scary. My Rocket was just spayed Tuesday and came thru with flying colors. You can ask the vet what type of anesthesia they use. My vet used isoflurane. Sevoflurane also puts less strain on the cat. Be sure to tell the vet you do not want Metacam given as a pain med.

Kelley, this rescue does the same thing, neuters or spays before the animals are released BUT I so bugged these people about Snowy and practically begged for her, the foster mom and the vet let us have her with the agreement we would bring her in for spaying in April. Dumb me, should have

Thank you Sharyl. I've written this down and will definitely ask him when I see him about pain meds and the anesthesia. Lynne - Original Message - From: Sharyl To: felvtalk@felineleukemia.org Sent: Friday, April 25, 2008 5:43 AM Subject: Re: spaying Lynne, I know it

Hi, Lynn, Anyone who knows from this list all that you did for BooBoo also knows that Snowy is a lucky kitty to have you. I'm so glad to hear things are going well for her and you. Is she ending up being your cat? Best wishes for her next Thursday. So many cats get spayed all the time with

Lynne, I understand. I always insist on blood work up as that will tell you if everything is normal, no matter what the age of the cat. Some vets only want to do this on older cats. I would give her L-lysine twice a day, 500 mg each time until she goes in and for a few days after she gets

Lynne, I know how you feel. Your new little one is healthy. If you go to a capable vet that uses iso for anesthesis, and does monitoring, she'll be fine. I have seen the proceedure done many times. We waited almost a year to do our Dusty because she has a hypoplastic trachia, and asthma.

Thanks Dede, I realize I'm concerned about a procedure that is routine but I was still worried about her little pushed in nose and having difficulty in breathing while under but the technician I spoke to told me that she would be carefully monitored during the procedure. After all she has been

Lynne, maybe you can request oxygen? My Frankie is having surgery to remove some lumps and have them biopsied tomorrow. He is asthmatic. I requested oxygen. L - Original Message - From: Lynne [EMAIL PROTECTED] To: felvtalk@felineleukemia.org Sent: Friday, April 25, 2008 3:45 PM

You should worry. Not because anything is going to go wrong but because that is what a person does when they care about a being. I have a young feral at the vets' now. I have called and checked on her more times than I would care to count. When it is one of my own I pretty well camp
