Back to Her Oldself

Dolce appears to be back to her old self finally. She is playing and rough housing with her brother and sister again. The swelling around her face has finally subsided to the point where she almost looks like her pre-VET visit self. She still has the abrasions under her eyes, but they are no longer the deep red that you saw in the pictures.

We went back to the Vet and picked up some medication to prevent her from licking her incision. We also got some pain and anti-inflammatory medication. I would have thought that would be standard procedure. But then again, what do I know.

My wife was in contact with the Vetrinarian Society here. The gentleman she talked to had never heard of this in the thirty years he had been a Vet. He recommended that we sit down with the Vet and discuss what happened. He said that it would enable us to confront the vet with our concerns and allow the Vet to see what happened so that she can see what had happened. I'm taking her back tomorrow to see the Vet so I will see what she says.

Needless to say, Dolce will be going to see the same Vet as her brothers and sister after this. He is a family friend and he did Bella's spaying. We would have gone to him but the Rescue Society did not have him on their list. Since we had already paid for the spaying at the time of adoption, we did not think it was such an issue. AFter all, this Vet was on the Society's recommended Vet list.

Right now, Dolce is curled up and sleeping next to me as I work. The surgery didn't affect her Purrer at all. Thank God.

  1. so glad she's doing well. it was probably more traumatic for you than her, they have short memories for things like that. but she does remember who to lay with, and who to purr for. she loves you and forgives the event.

  2. Oh dear - poor Dolce. We hadn't been on-line so we didn't know. So glad to hear that she is doing better. Hope things continue to progress in the right direction. Get well soon, Dolce!

  5. Even though I'm not a big fan of Brats, I'm glad to hear the little one is doing well. I don't like V-E-Ts to begin with so it's scarey to hear that one could be so horrible. I'll be sending her some licks and purrs, but don't tell anybody I did so, ok?

  6. Oh Boy, we hope she doesn't go nuts when she goes through the door & smells that place! It just could freak her out! Sweet baby girl. Love from all of us.

  8. Mom was pretty scared to take Joaquin to a different vet for his crypt orchid surgery. Fortunately our vet had an opening in the evening so after the neuter, he went directly to our regular vet for observation and a thorough check-up before Mom brought him home.

  9. I am glad Dolce is recovering smoothly. I still drive 80 miles to my old vet because I can't really trust the vets in the vicinity.

  12. So glad she is doing better. It is definitely time to confront the vet. You have a right to know exactly what happened and why.

  13. Wow! Yes, a sit-down with the vet is definitely in order. We cats are so resiliant! It's stories like these that make me proud to be a feline.

    Keep up the good healing work, Dolce!

  14. Oh my gosh, I'm just now catching up and finding out about poor lil' Dolce. Yes, a sit-down with the vet and follow up with the veterinarian society. Also report it to the Rescue Society and get that vet off the list!

  16. We've been offline for a few days, and maybe you told and we missed it, but did you ever discover just what it was that caused the allergic reaction?

    Glad to see Dolce is recovering.
