I was wondering if anyone had any idea as to what this could be...the vet, in her language said "this is very weird" and that they have never seen anything like this before.
I had my 2 yr old cat spayed on April 8/11. On Apr. 28 I noticed a bunch of lumps on the chest of my cat Lily and freaked out and took her to the vet the next day. The vet looked at her and determined that all of her mammary glands were swollen...which is weird because that's not suppose to happen after a spay right? She took Lilly into the next room because apparently its so weird and odd and then came back and told me "well, it could be cancer"...This freaked me out even more but Lily seems healthy...she eats and drinks and does her business fine. She plays and she doesnt seem to be in pain when you stroke her belly. In fact she even rolls over and lets you rub them. Her personality has not changed... i'm wondering...could this be a botched spay? I'm pretty upset that the vet has no idea what she's talking about and just randomly suggests cancer and doesnt even say well we can test for this and that. So i'm doing my own research and am finding that it could be a botched spay procedure. This vet has a good reputation and it's a nice clean building. I'm just confused and upset.
Lily is the sweetest cat in the world...it would be so unfair for her to have cancer. Would anyone know why a cat's mammary glands (all of them) would swell up a few weeks after being spayed?
