I had decided that I was going to call the vets today, and get an antibiotic, as soon as I woke up today(Missy had teeth extractions and deep tooth cleaning. Well, when I DID get up, my poor kitty was lethargic, had a temp of 103.4 and had her eyes all matted shut! I was SOOOO upset! So, I called the Vet, and they got her in within an hour. They did give her a shot of antibiotics and send home Amoxill for her. I did ask him, if he could have gotten bloodwork while she was anesthetized, and he said yes, but they would not have been "true values" due to the anesthesia. He said if she is all worked up beforehand, and they do bloodwork, the adrenalin throws almost ALL the values off! I feel like they came up short with Missy, and also, I had Spike in last week, as HE was not feeling well, had a temp. of 103.6--and NO bloodwork there, either. He did give him a shot of antibiotic, and a bottle of Amoxill and sent him home. Spike is STILL not himself. Not lethargic, but not running around and feisty like he usually is! I am thinking I really need to find a better vet around here, as I am not happy with all this...OR do you think I am being too critical of him??? Thanks for all the replies on this thread and my other thread on Missy!
