View Full Version : Surgery


December 15th 05, 02:32 PM
I have a 9 year old cat and it underwent surgery on Monday to have a tumor
removed from its left flank. It lies down doing nothing, only drinking
water. This evening it will be 72 hours of the operation. I'm waiting for
the results of the biopsis. The Vet said that it was a huge tumor. I' m
desperate that I cannot do anything for him. I tried to force son vitamins
and very soft food made por him but he does not accept it

I' willing to hear any advise. Thank you

You should talk to the vet about his not eating. Try warming up meated baby
foods without onion.

Yes, please call the vet. They may have to put him on an IV. It's
dangerous for your cat to go this long without eating.

If he needs to be force-fed, you may have to mix soft food and water
(blenders work well) and syringe-feed him. The vet can help with a plan.

Good luck,

Rhonda

Call the vet, they should be providing you with post-operative advice
regarding your cat's condition.

Contact your vet immediately. If he doesn't recommend syringe feeding, I
think you should take your cat to another vet as soon as possible. Your
first loyalty is to your cat- not your vet.

Good luck,
