spaying doozy

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
my 2 year old dsh was recently spayed for the third time. yes, three times. she has recently begun howling again and my vet says that it's because she still has hormones in her body and that it will take 1-2 months to be rid of them. i'm not going to be able to take 1-2 mos. of howling. i'm just not. i'm already losing sleep. is there a way to stop the howling? has anyone ever encountered this before? any advice/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thank you.

Firstly, get a good lawyer and sue the hiney's off the doctor(s) that did the first 2 spayings. Then with all the money you get, build a sound-proof bedroom for yourself.

LOL I agree that is like getting your tubes tied 3x. I would be throwing a fit if that happenes.

I do remember reading that it is possible for a cat to go into heat even after beng spayed....(Usually this is a result of a small piece of ovarian tissue left inside...) Have you had her hormones checked out also? I would suggest that just to make sure they are at normal levels..there is something defiantly going on there...I hope they are not charging you full price!

Well, I adopted her "spayed" but she went into heat January and had a large piece of uterus removed. Then she went into heat two weeks ago and they removed both of her ovaries which had apparently been left in. I didn't go back to the same doctor as January. I am now looking into suing the January doctor. I don't know who did it the first time. I've tried locking her in my room with me at night but then I have to hear her. It seems to help a little, but I cannot take howling for 1-2 months until her hormones disappear. I'm just at my wit's end...

If you adopted her was it a shelter if so they should be able to tell you who it was. I would think...

I adopted her through a foster mom who takes cats from a shelter if its crowded or their in risk of being put down...so I guess I could call her. I've been trying to avoid it, since I'm still very angry about this and what happened to my other cat that I adopted from her. He apparently had a pre-existing condition and I had to have him put down a month after I adopted him.

Honestly, I would not recommend a lawsuit at all. The most you would get is the cost of the surgery back, but your legal fees would exceed that amount by a considerable margin.

What you can do is file a complaint with your state's veterinary board. That is the best thing to do in this situation.

I think I would wonder about the foster mom. Does she only take in the animals that have health risk or that need special care.

I thought you would detect that I was joking!

My cousin, who is a lawyer, suggested small claims court. I can't imagine court costs there being so much that it wouldn't be worth it somewhat. I don't have a lot of money, so the $300 I had to spend on the spay and the following hospitalization b/c my cat recovered poorly from the surgery could go to my enormous credit card debt I've incurred b/c of these multiple spayings.
