sozo has been spayed

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
we just brought her home about 1/2 hr now, and she is pacing every where, she hasn't sat down or layed down at all. And Pubah her kitten is trying to play with her jumping on her back sometimes, I'm keeping an eye on them but I'm not sure what to do? Should I let him sniff her wound, so he knows she is in pain?

I wouldn't let him around the wound.He may accidently scratch it or she may lash out at him because she is in pain.Our Vet suggests that you keep them as quiet as you can for atleast the first 48 hours....LONGER if you can.

but is the pacing normal? she is still doing it. I tried to block her off into a corner of a room, but then she jumped up onto the bed to get out.

Pacing indicates that she is probably in pain. Do you know if she was given any pain medication?

oh yeah she is pretty doped up, they said they gave her a 24 hr pain relief shot. she is laying down now, thankfully. should i maybe give her some advil or somthing tomorrow ? she was still in heat when she had her surgery.. does this cause more pain than it would if she wasn't in heat?

Don't give anything without your vets ok-some things that are safe for us are poison for cats. Usually by the second day there is less pain, and after a few days she will be back to herself.

Great job of getting her spayed! YAY!

i would keep her closed up in a warm quiet dimly lit bathroom for the first night or so. try not to let her jump up too much that can irritate the cut.

I would keep Pubah away from her for a while, otherwise he may try and lick her wound or pull out the stitches. I had 6 cats done on the same day and had to seperate them all, or they would lick each others wounds.

I agree with Jen, keep her in a quiet dim bathroom.

I wish I could keep her in a bathroom, but so many ppl share this house, and the washrooms so it wouldn't give her much privacy and she would probably run out. So far Sozo has been looking for hiding spots in my huge room, so she can keep to herself, I think Pubah now knows that his mum is in pain, and is leaving her alone a bit more. He was sniffing out her wound earlier, but she wouldn't let him near it.. so thats a good sign. We got a tattoo put in her ear though and Pubah was licking that. I don't think she'd let him lick her big wound on her tummy, because it would be too painful for her. I'm just a little worried about when I go to sleep... I'll play with Pubah a lot tonight, hopefully to the point he'll get tired and sleep all night.

I'm sure she'll be just fine later on today.Blaze was back to her old self the day after her spay.If you can't keep her in the bathroom,do you have a quiet place that she can go to and hide for awhile to keep calm? I gave Blaze a crate to relax in.

maybe you can get a big cardboard box, lined with soft fabric, or her carrier where she can secrete herself? not force her into it, but provide a good hiding spot?

Congrats on having Sozo spayed. I do hope she feels better soon.

Sozo has been pretty much sleeping these past two days, she had the surgery on Thursday during the morning. She is eating which is a good thing, but she is definitely not her normal self. Some people on this forum have described their cats as being full of energy the day after their surgeries. I guess it's different for all cats? I'm going to call the vet tomorrow, because on the handout he gave me it said " if your cat seems depressed 24 hrs after surgery to call the vet" But other people have told me not to worry because it takes cats a couple days to partly recover.

I do believe that each cat reacts differently to the spay....if you are concerned about your cat best to contact the vet. I hope she feels better soon.
