Cat caesarians

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Can anyone tell me how dangerous cat caesarians are?

My little baby Misty has been kept in at the vet's and they are doing a caesarian, I don't know what to think, do, I'm scared for her, and the kittens and I've still got an hour to go before I find out if she's ok.

Please can someone tell me if their cat has ever had one or if they can be safe. I'm really losing it.

I love her so much.

Your cat is in the best possible hands right now. Vets do c-sections on animals all the time. Misty will be sore for a number of days after coming home, and you will have to keep her as quiet as you can, and if you have a small area where she can be contained, that would be best for her, so she won't exert herself.

Here is a website that gives you an online tour of their facility as well as shows you what goes on in operations.This is a c-section for a dog, but maybe it will help put your mind at ease a bit.

Tabks alot Hissy,

Will the kittens still be able to suckle? And is there any risk she'll be more likely to reject them?

I don't honestly know the answer to that linka. Each situation is so different. Please try not to worry though. I know it is hard, but please just try and relax.Misty needs you to have a clear head on this for her. She is in the best place of all right now. They may even decide to keep her overnight, I don't know. Just take it one step at a time and know you have a support line with this board.
