WAH My baby is going into surgery tomorro

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Whelp Kirra finally made it over 2lbs and is healthy again. She weighs a nice 3lbs 4oz now , when on June30th she was only 1lb 5oz. So the vet had said if the worms cleared up good we would know cause he expected her to tripple her weight by 7/21. So i called the place today that was suppose to do her spaying, micropchipping and shots as part of her adoption from the rescue lady and was gonna set it up for monday or tuesday next week. Well they lady was like ooo we had some cancelations tomorrow, how about tomorrow? Well as much as i want her to get spayed (i had 13 cats at one point, not from pregnancies mind you, i dont want more than one right now lol) i am just nervous. Most of my cats in the past were spayed before i got em, or after 6 months when they were rescued. So i really had never delt with a spay under 4 months. She has only been here 3 weeks but she never hid from us and clung to us the first day (sleeping for 2 hours on my chest not 1 hour after coming into our home) . I am so in love with my Kirra that i will be a nervous wreck tomorrow.

You are doing this for her greater good- better health and longevity. It is a terribly stressful thing, so be strong and know we'll all be by your (virtual) side. She'll be back before you know it.

My vet still waits until six monthes but from what I've read they actually make a much faster recovery when it is done when they are younger.

I would find a newer not so old fashioned vet.

Well, I took Kirra in this morning, and I swear she is trying to keep from being spayed lol. I pulled her out to take her collar off and sure enough she had green goop in the corner of her eyes. They said it looked like conjunctivitis and that she should still be able to be spayed. So, I left her and called. Almost 3 hours later, they are spaying her and this vet should prescription a med for her, if not i will call our vet for something.

I don't get it, we just spent a week with ointment on her eyes 4 times a day, it wasn't even green, then, it was yellow. Last night it was clear, and this morning straight to green, why again so soon.

But I am to get her around 5, so I will let y'all know how she does.

It's so difficult trying to go about the day when your heart is at the Vet in the middle of a procedure such as this. My girlies and I send special hugs your way and really look forward to knowing when your baby is home safe and sound this evening. Kirra is in for lots of extra snuggles tonight from her Mommy!

Well I just called to check on her and its driving me insane. She should be going in in 30 minutes. I have never known a vet to spay this late in the day and release them so quickly. I am suppose to pick her up at 5 and if she goes in 30 thats 2. They said they would be giving her a shot before she leaves that lasts 6-8 hours for pain. But they said she should bounce back so quick that i wouldnt be able to tell she had srugery when i pick her up, untill i see her belly.

UGH i am a nervous wreck, she could tell too i guess cause she was like, and you are more than welcome to call back in an hour or so. I was like oh i am sure i will lol.

I would say the stress. She didn't know what exactly was going on but you being all worried about it, well she can sense that and it probably made her really stressed especially since she doesn't know the reason for it. So then on top of already reacting to your stress, she is doubly stressed when loaded into the carrier and taken to the vet. Stress causes the immune system to have a harder time doing it's job and the kitty can get sick easier. That could be it. So don't be so stressed and worried over a routine simple surgery that the vet could probably do with his eyes closed Great job for getting her done!

Although I insisted that our vet spay our kitty at 4 - 5 months, I was a nervous wreck when she went for the surgery...so worried that something could go wrong. Of course everything was fine, but I know how you feel. Let us know when she's back home. In a day or 2 she'll be back to normal.

Whelp i just got the call she is going in now. They were calling to make sure she was to be microchipped. I told the lady the rescue group said x amount gets x y and z so do it all. So she said ok just makiing sure, and that she was gonna walk kirra into surgery now. *faints* they scared me when my husband asked who such and such number was lol, my heart jumped in my throat.

Kirra is home. She is sleeping on my bed as we speak (even though she isnt suppose to jump she got up there anyway) she looks good, her insecion is diffrent though. She has internal stiches and the outside looks glued. Never seen that before, anyone else?
