BTW Lucy has a huge piece of grass sticking out of his mouth and he looks so funny LOL!
So anywho, I got up this morning and took her into Care Care for an appointment. I ended up waiting about 3 hours just to be seen. We did end up going to eat during that time so the wait wasn't that excruciating. They gave her an exam and told me she needs to have a dental, which is good as I am planning one very soon for all my kitties. Her front teeth are OK but she does have some buildup on the back teeth. She had a small temp, 103 and she weighs 6.5 pounds. She has always been so tiny poor little girl. The vet said she was at a good weight for her body type which made me feel good. They also told me a lot of bad stuff about the BARF diet too which I had never heard before. Hrmm......
Anyway, they shaved her paw to get a closer look and like I thought didn't requite stitches. I opted to give her the pain shot, Torbugesic, which is the first time I've had a pet get this type of pain med. So she is doing a bit better just from that but the meds made her a little dingy. They also shaved her butt a bit to make sure she had no other wounds as I told them last night she was pretty swollen. She is on Calvamox for 7 days and goes back in ten days for a checkup and vaccines as she needs her Rabies. So now she looks REALLY funny with a naked butt, hehe. Don't believe me? Take a look!
Here is her owie. I have no idea what happened as the wound is not a puncture wound. My thoughts escape me on this one.
So of course she needs to stay inside for two weeks and I have the cat box set up for her etc. She peed in the carrier while at the vet clinic poor girl. Now I am praying she doesn't get infected. I have to soak the wound twice a day with a warm pack and also apply some neosporin. Wish us luck! Seems like I have had one too many vet visits lately! Oh yes, and it only costs 70 bucks! I love Cat Care. Isn't this funny though? They charged ten bucks just to clip her fur.
