I have a question for those with any knowledge about or exerience with CRF. The other night I gave my cat her sub Q fluids & after I pulled the needle out she bled. It wasn't a horrific amount, but it was enough that I got some on my hand & that I wiped a large sized drop or two off of her a couple minuets later. It stoped fairly quickly so I wasn't too concerned, but I was wondering if this a sign of progression of the illness? Is this something I should be prepared for from now on, or is it possibl I just knicked a small vein & that's why she bled. I would like to know if I should expect it that way I will know to hold on to her after the fluids & have a tissue ready to hold on the spot I pull the needle from. I normally just let her go because she gets upset & holding her would only cause additonal stress. Any ideas or suggestions?
