Hello everyone,

As some of you may know my 6 month old kitten passed away kind of violently last night. It was very traumatic for me and my gf and we are scarred from that experience.

I was sleeping and my gf had given him his shot of Cephalosporin. About a minute later I heard him yell and then my gf yelled for me to come. He was spaziming on the couch. And the rest... well he died.

I was wondering what colour Cephalosporin should be. We went to the vet on saturday and got some Cephalosporin and it was a clear liquid and had no ill effects on him. When we went back yesterday and got some new Cephalosporin it was a yellow colour but we thought it didn't matter. He was very tired all day but I thought it was kind of weird that he went into shock a minute after my gf injected him with it. I was told that there was no harm with the injection into the muscle and that if you missed the muscle nothing bad would happen.

I need to know if what happened was because he was just so sick or if the vet made some kind of mistake with the medication....

you're doing what we all do... blaming yourself for his passing. i did the same thing with my Mouse. my head knew i had done my best, but my heart was saying things like, 'i should've gone to the 4th vet first - she might have survived' & 'why didn't i notice she was ailing sooner?' [mind you, she might not have been - i really don't know]. don't do this to yourself - you did all that you could to help Spaz, & it wasn't enough. unfortunately, that's just the way things go sometimes read this - it might make you feel better: Choices.

Can you call another Vet and ask them what color it should Be? Its not you or your Gf 's Fault. I blamed myself when Stormy was Pts too and the Vet said not to blame myself. Coco is on liquid Cephelexin which I see is part of Cephalosporin.
