Jay’s dental surgery went well. Very well, actually.
Of course there were tears in the morning as the technician was taken my darling Jay away in his carrier.
But it all went well, in less than the estimated time (20 min instead of 30) which also brought the final cost of the procedure down. In the end it was $200 and a bit less that the initial estimate. Yay!
Kitty is doing quite well. He’s eating just fine. There’s no bleeding and no coughing or vomiting, both of which can sometimes happen after general anaesthesia. I have to give him pain medication for three days and antibiotics for seven days and he’s taking them without fuss.
There’s only the matter of some swelling of his right paw, where they had the I.V. line but it should be gone by tomorrow. He seems to be walking well. No limping at all.
There was a handwritten note with the paper work. I says:
Jay’s dental cleaning and extraction went very well today. He was a lovely patient and we all wish him a speedy recovery!
The technician also said to me Jay was a very sweet cat and they were very impressed how well behaved he was. My brave Jay!
Thank you for your encouraging comments and tweets! They really made a difference.
