(update at bottom of pg 1)Any vet/vet tehcs out there? Good vibes for my kitteh, please.
So I've made a couple posts about Sarabi, my foster cat.
I'm currently waiting to hear back from her rescue. They got her spayed through this low cost clinic who did a CRAPTASTIC job. She was spayed Monday & I got her back on Tuesday. She wasn't her normal self but I didn't expect her to be right away.
Then I noticed her incision was swelling & the staples were coming apart. While I'd been at hom with her I hadn't noticed her picking at it, but then again I work 6 hours out of the day too.
So I took her to the clinic Thursday, they stapled her back up, gave me an e-collar & antibiotics & sent us on our way, even tho that I told them she hadn't had anything to eat or drink since I got her on Tuesday.
Fast forward to today. I keep her e-collar on unless she is in my direct eye sight. I haven't seen her pick at it. When I had to cook or help out my DS with something I put the e-collar back on. She ate a little bit & drank some cat milk. She just woke up & I checked her out because she was shaking. The staples are hanging on by a thread & the incision is wide open.
Does anyone know if I put some sterile pads & gauze on it if it would be okay? It just seems like it is welcoming even more bacteria being wide open like that & of course out of all places in the house she wants to lay on the rug in the bathroom.
Guuuh, I was just getting so excited because she finally ate & drank & now its like we took 2 steps back with the incision. The lady from the rescue responds best with text messages so I just sent her two letting her know pretty much what I just said about the incision & the staples & I'm waiting to hear back from her.
This is just so upsetting. TERRIBLE first foster experience. I love this girl to pieces already & will more than likely adopt her, but I want her healthy first.
