  Thanks Dede.

She was on the bed by my head this morning when I woke up. She is
definitely better than she was last night but only ate a tiny bit this
morning. She's upstairs sleeping. I can't give her the pain medication
unless she eats. She obviously has a sore throat because she is constantly
swallowing and when she did eat a little this morning she appeared to be
grinding her teeth. I think her jaw aches too. The foster mom told me to
watch her and if she seems to be in pain, then give her medication, if not
don't. She says none of the shelter's cats get sent home with pain
medication. I hate for her to be in any kind of discomfort but this cat
will not take medication. She foams at the mouth and becomes hysterical.
As long as she is sleeping I'm not going to bother her. I hate to see her
hurting but hopefully in a few days she will be feeling a little better.

 Lynne, I didn't read your message until now. I hope Snowy feels better
this AM. It has been my experience that the older they are, the more
misserable they feel. The pain meds should help. As long as she is eating
and drinking, I would not worry too much. I am glad this ordeal is over for
both of you.

 Snowy is very lucky to have you.

  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. 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.

Re: help please

2008-06-25 Thread Lynne
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.
