Ok, My grandma took a sick cat to this vet..they made her sign a paper saying she agreed to let htem treat it..the vet then gave it a shot after it had a fever of 106..within an hour its fever was back to 101...she then went back to work/class (she's a college student) and then when she called the vet told her the cat had to be put to sleep (anesthia) to give it bloodwork ?? Why the hell would they put a cat to sleep to take it's blood? And then they claimed he had something in his throat and wanted to look in it.. yet they didn't ask or tell her about any of this stuff, they just went ahead nad did all these procedures. Supposedly it has a spot where the drainage is and the vet said it was 'like a granulation' He's claiming it might be throat cancer and it'll be an expensive treatment..the cat looks very young and this vet sounds like he just wants to take advantage and make some money since she doesn't know anything about cats.. I am probably the most knowledgable about cats in the family but have not seen the cat yet..anyhow..any advice?
