A new study just published recommends vaccinating cats in the tail. Why, you ask? Well, there are some cats that develop a vaccine induced sarcoma (tumor) which requires aggressive surgical excision if it occurs. The advantage of a tail vaccine is that the tail is easier to amputate and won't affect a cats ability to ambulate. Here I am practicing on a cat that I just spayed. A nice, quiet pet to practice this on.
Mondays surgery list was four grey kittens for spays. They were all identical so we had to keep them in separate cages so we made sure we gave the right one back to each owner. (That would be a terrible mistake to make!).
A wonderful client of ours gave us this white cat for our lobby. As cute as it is we found Coot rubbing and purring and courting her all day. None of us had the heart to break the bad news to him.
Her story is here.
I'm hedging my bets that she will be just fine!
Lilly in for a visit. Buddy is doing amazing after his laryngeal tie back over two months ago, and Lilly still receiving daily doses of oral ivermectin for Demodex, but looking like a million bucks!
Linda takes great pleasure in dressing him up and embarrassing him in front of others. How many of us undergo therapy because of the outfits our parents forced us to wear in public? Noodle, call me, I know a great psychologist, and she's local.
Back at home for our snow day!
