I had my cat spayed on Sunday (4/22) at a low cost clinic and I'm a bit concerned. My cat has not ate very much since the surgery unless I give her wet food and it's not like her to not eat. The vet that spayed her noticed she had a lot of stool in her colon and asked she she had regular bowel movements, which she did. However, after surgery it took her until Tuesday night to have a bowel movement but they are very small. I also noticed that I'm very itchy around her now which has never happened before. I'm not allergic to cats so I don't think that's it but I'm concerned maybe she caught fleas? Her fur seems very greasy which is also something strange because she always keeps it so clean. I'm not sure if I'm just overthinking it all, I just want to make sure she's ok.
hi and welcome. it does take a few days after any surgery to be yourself again in regards to eating, bowels and grooming...but this is now day 4, I would expect to see her much better by today.
you can check for fleas by parting her fur and looking for flakes, not likely to catch these at the Vets but you never know.
is the incision red or hot? offer her the canned foods she likes to get her eating(much better to have on canned diet permanently anyway) this will also help with softer bowel movements b/c of the water content.
If she's still showing signs of not being well by tomorrow I would certainly contact the clinic and speak to the Vet or take her in, this is not normal to go much more than 2 days
good luck and let us know ok....♥
She seemed in better spirits when I got home today. I gave her some wet food with some pumpkin puree mixed in and she went right for it. Hopefully all will be well with her now. Thanks for the quick response :)
