nuetering gone bad very bad
i know that this is not everyones experience but it was mine.
i hand raised a chinny roughly 7 months ago they were my second litter born my parents(chinnies) just couldn't cope with two very demanding babies!!!!
so i pulled them as a last resort after they were attacked by mum at 3 days. i had a grey girl(Bindi) and a biege boy(Toby). i had problems with Toby he did not want to eat but with a little encouragement he started and it was not long before he was eating and doing normal chinny things.
i decided to keep them both but i realised that i would need to have him nuetered if i wanted to keep them together and i approached my vet and he said he would do it and it was staight forward and so he was operated on.
this is where everything started to go wrong
1. he was operated on by a different vet who had not done it before
2. he was sent home with no pain relief given to him during surgery
3. the vet used cat gut stitches
he had a reaction to the stitches used and got an infection then a tumor grew that was not scar tissue(where his teste was)
or abcess we are guessing it was a cancer of some sort it grew to be the size of a large marble in the space of a few days it affected his kidneys and we had to have the chinny that i spent hours raising put to sleep.
so my warning is this find a vet who knows what they are doing insist on that vet doing it and please make sure your chinny gets pain relief had i known later that he had not gotten any i would have taken him back for something to make him comfortable the only reason i found out was when i had the cat spayed and had to sign for pain relief to be given apparently this is policy for all surgery.
so im sorry Toby had i known i would have kept you as you were and sorted something different. watch the others from above miss your happy little face heaps RIP
