complications after spaying?
Maybe this question is common or has already been posted, so forgive me if that's the case.
It will become clear that I'm not an experienced cat owner, but, naturally, I've always been a big fan. at any rate, I got a Russian Blue(first cat) about 4 months ago, and she's the best. Just last week I had her spayed. The place that performed the surgery, somehow or another, came highly recommended... When I took my cat out of her carrier once we got home I immediately noticed a large gash on the top of her head--the fur had also had been gouged out. I called the office immediately, and they claimed she "bumped her head," and didn't have too much else to add, acting pretty nonchalant about things. If that weren't enough, two days later after controlled inactivity I noticed that beneath the incision there is a protruding lump(the lump remains the same at 7 days post surgery), much like a hernia my mom's dog developed after being spayed.
essentially, I'm just looking for some insight as to whether the two injuries might be related, or if someone else has had a similar experience, at least with the spaying complication. also, if anyone would know if there is any legal recourse for me--not for personal gain but rather to report this animal hospital as incompetent, I'd appreciate that very much.
thanks in advance.
