My 6 month old sphynxs' nipples have started to get puffy. She seems to be fine otherwise but has been a bit more vocal than usual. Is this normal? She is going in next week to get spayed.
There's no determined amount of time for females, especially cats. More importantly, they can cycle in and out of heat--and for some, it'll seem like a constantly cycle for months until she finally gets pregnant (when it should stop, but some females continue the antics even during pregnancy).Ok its a heat cycle, she kept us up all last night ahhhhh
Two questions, how long will this last and can we still get her spayed next week?
It's my professional opinion that you should permit your companion to stay with your vet overnight, unless you've personally had training in the field of Veterinary Medicine and are confidant you can recover a compromised pet from anesthesia. The AVMA is beginning to smack the hands of veterinarians who send internal-surgery pets home with owners the same day because of such a high incident of problems (because cats don't rightly follow the instruction sheet sent home to outline what can and cannot be done).Thanks for the info everyone. My kitty is scheduled to get spayed on Wednesday. One more question, is it necessary for her to stay overnight? I asked the vet if someone would be with her and they said no. Wouldn't it make more sense for her to be home with me where I can keep an eye on her instead of being at the vet all alone???
