Baby Bonnie is home from the vet!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
She's home, there was no hissing, although she took a swipe at my eye with her claws out through the carrier when we were still at the vets. I guess I deserve it, leaving her there like I did.

She is literally feeling NO pain - he gave her painkiller, and gave me some to give her orally once a day for three days. Meta...something. Don't think I will unless it looks like she really needs it, because I think it might be better for her to actually BE in a little pain.

The reason is, as soon as she got out of the carrier she went straight for a trip to the litterbox, took a poop, got a drink of water, then went for a run in the cat wheel - literally, a RUN - then started chasing Max and Penny in a game of tag.

So much for keeping her calm!

But she's home and is doing well, no need for an e-collar, as her sutures are steel, so she can't break them. She goes back in two weeks to get her sutures out.

Thanks very much for all the vibes, I appreciate it.

All the staff at the vets office loved her and played with her every chance they got, they said, and called her the sweetest they've ever seen! I have to agree, because I happen to think she's pretty darned special.

I hate metacam and it can cause kidney failure in cats.
My vet does not use oral metacam at all.
Meeko got buperprex.
I am glad yor cat feels ok.
I do know alot of people with young cats in teh crf group becase the metacam.

Well, like I said, I don't plan to use it. Ginger never had painkiller and her spay included a hernia fix, and she did just fine.

Thats good.
My Meeko had pyo so she needed pain killer.
I heard my Cleo was acting normal the same day.
You can see the scar on her becase she is a sphynx.
Meeko and Cleo got disolving stitches.
First time my cats ever got that kind.
Some cats do good with out pain meds.

Yay! I'm glad she's home and doing well...even if she doesn't quite get the whole "rest and heal" thing.

Glad your baby's home and doing well. If the vet gave you metacam, don't use it for the reasons mentioned above.

Well, no signs of pain this morning, as she is acting like her usual little "bengul" self.

Although I did find Ferris and Ginger growling at her this morning, which is weird, since she smells more like herself today and less like the vet. But I'm not worried, it really wasn't anything other than a "stay back" growl.

Bonnie is actually showing some signs of having an alpha personality, which doesn't surprise me a bit. I think she and Max plan to take over the world.

Her incision looks ok, a little bit of swelling, but not reddened at all, no weeping. She has 5 stitches, and has licked at it a little bit but not enough for me to get the e-collar out. She spent most of her time trying to clean the vet smell off her fur last night.

Main thing is, she is REALLY happy to be home. And I'm really happy to have her back.

It took Cleo 4 days to like Meeko again.
She was the only one that acted that way.
Meeko is one of my boss cats.
I am glad your cat feels ok.
