Vibes for Princess??

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Well, Miss Princess has ruptured her cruciate ligament in her left leg

She is scheduled for surgery this Friday - and although she is 12, our wonderful vet said that she is very healthy and has many good years left, and to not operate would pretty much ensure that she develops osteoarthritis within 18 months, which is much more uncomfortable, and much harder to treat adequately. We don't want our `little feets' to develop arthritis. She's a very active cat and quite wobbly on her left leg, so the surgery is a must.

So, I hope you don't mind me asking, but I wonder if Princess could have some wonderful loving TCS vibes? She's a timid girl and no doubt this process will freak her out somewhat. I'm sure lots of cyber hugs will help get her through it

Absolutely! I will keep her in my prayers that all goes well!!! I'm sure between you and your vet looking after her- she will do just fine! At 12 years she is still at a good age to go ahead with the surgery, so i wouldn't worry too much about the anestesia with her Ask for them to give her some Yobine if she has any issues waking up. Most vets will do surgery in the mornings on kitties because it takes them a longer time to wake up than say most dogs. I imagine they'll knock her out using some Keteset....so if they do...they can give her Yobine post op and she'll wake up easier

Thank you so much everyone

Nikki, it's funny you should say that about the anaesthetic because a couple of years ago Princess had a routine procedure and that afternoon Max and I were out for a coffee, waiting to hear from the vet, and they rang and told us - really bluntly I might add - that she had died under anaesthetic, but that it was ok because they revived her but oh, by the way, she's blind as a result and we don't know if she'll ever get her sight back. Here is the thread about it from back then.

We were fuming that a) they'd not been more careful and b) that they'd just blurted it out so bluntly like that over the phone. We almost had an accident going to pick her up, and I had to nurse her through it for four days afterwards. It took three weeks for her sight to come back. It was a great bonding experience for Princess and I because I hadn't been with Max long and she was super protective and didn't like me one bit, but that poor little muffin was so unwell, so confused and sick - and all because the stupid vet told us she'd need to go under to have her feline acne treated

Needless to say, we told them exactly what we thought of their `service' and never went back. We have our wonderful vet now and he knows all about Princess's history with anaesthesia, and has reassured us. Which is great, but we're still worried about it.
