Emergency Spaying

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I'm new here -- hello!

My only cat, Scratch [we named her after the song "Cat Scratch Fever"], was laying in bed with me early yesterday morning. She got up and jumped off my bed, but I noticed that where she was lying, there was two large pools of blood. I know it was blood and not "poo", it had the colour of dry blood but it was very thick. I freaked out and got my brother to call the vet.

The vet said that Scratch had something wrong with her uterus [I forget the scientific term for it] and she had to be spayed immediately, since whatever she had is life-threatening.

They spayed her first thing this morning, and we're supposed to call in a bit so see how she is doing. I miss my kitty and I want her to come home!

She may have had pyometra:

I'm glad you were able to get her spayed.

It's most likely pyometra and when the cats get veterinary care in time there are usually no problems with the recovery. I had my oldest Devon Rex female emergency spayed due to pyometra last summer and she was perfectly fine after just a few days.

I just got off the phone with the vet -- she did great! There's no complications or anything, but now I'll have to wait for her to come home.

I am glad that you got her in so quickly and took care of her!!! She should be just fine now, you did a great job!!!

Great job! I think it was probably Pyometra too. That is great that they spayed her because that should always be done before a cat reaches 6 months to a year. You didn't say how old she is but it is really unhealthy for her to go without being spayed her whole life. She can also get cancers when she is older from not being spayed. So great job you got that taken care of.

Someone said I didn't say how old she is; she is four.
She came back home today.. she meows more than she usually does.. that's about it. The vet said she was an excellent patient, though.

Her little face is so cute! You are very good for calling the vet so quickly

Scratch kept on licking her incision so we had to get her an Elizabethan collar. She had some trouble walking for a while, so she just gave up and now she's snoozing on my bed. I come with a picture!:
