She is doing great. She had her last dose of her antibiotic Thursday night. Her abcess has healed very nicely.
I was amazed at how quick it closed and healed b/c it was a hole!! Of course it was ...LOL
... it was an abcess. But really it was terrible. The vet freaked out once he opened it and pushed on it and saw howmuch was coming out of there. I started just boo-hooing
like a big baby. But it hurt me to hear her screaming. The vet made me leave until they got it all out (which was a good 5 minutes). He told me he couldn't even guess how many ounces of puss came out of there. I have not let her outside (I usually let her out in our fenced in back yard to play a little) since she has had the babies b/c I thought the babies should be her only priority, so he said she proabaly got the abcess by one of the kittens scratching her or biting her as they were nursing.
Sorry for the long story....
I am just so happy she is doing better. Also.. I want to ask you something. I posted a thread on it but I only got one answer on it. And this person was not 100% sure if is possible.
The vet said from her 106 temp... that it dried all of her milk. And before yesturday it had been a little over a week that she had nursed them. But yesturday she was laying down (I caught her 2 different times) nursing the kittens. Is it possible after being stimulated that she produced more milk?
