A red-eared slider has more white spots on the shell

Dec 6, 2017

Came in for ear abscess surgery 7 days ago. Had one white spot. Given anti-fungal wash. Now had more white spots. Why?

Spread of fungal infections on the shell. Advised dry-docking overnight and come for anti-fungal cream.


A young cat has fever and passes vaginal pus - pyometra

Dec 6, 2017

The cat was operated today after 4 days as an in-patient. She had no appetite and had to be syringe fed one can of A/D a day.

Her fever keeps recurring despite IV drips and antibiotics and anti-fever injections. So, the spay was postponed for 4 days.

3203. A 31-month-old Siamese cat fell from the 2nd floor - distal 1/3 femoral fracture of leg leg

Forgot to close windows.

Another cat chased her. She fell from the bathroom window from 2nd floor on Dec 1, 2017. Vet 1 referred to specialist quoted $6,000 for surgery.

Wire netting of windows instead of closing windows advised.




Educational video shows how to conduct a physical examination of the cat's fractured leg.


 




---------------------------------------

Post op on Dec  5, 2017    Pin and cast as the fracture is too close to the femoral head and cannot be stabilised just by pining. Pin protrudes out of femoral head to provide stability and this does not affect knee flexion and extension. Pin removed in 8 weeks.
1. E-collar 8 weeks as cat tends to lick cast and wet it or bite it off.
2. Cast must be kept dry. Is protected by bandages.
3. Review 2 weekly
4. If paw is swollen, see vet immediately 
5. Cast removed in 6 weeks ideally
