    Pregnant cat

    id still talk to your bf about it, he doesnt have to project his own masculinity on a cat. He can get aggresive with her after the spay or even run away from home looking for a female, get numerous of infectious diseases and infect the other cats.

    Is my cat wound infected?

    It doesn't look infected to me, a bit of redness is normal since they cut and handled the skin around. Is she on antibiotics?

    Pregnant cat

    The female cat will keep going into heat if the male is not neutered, even then its better to have them both spayed asap. Is she 2 months pregnant already? If u see anything off during labor run to the ER bc shes way too young to be pregnant

    Its not common to get them sedated for it, at my vet even owners can help hold them to take them specially xrays are taken very fast. I holded myself my senior cat for an ultrasound, if they sedating her for an x ray even when shes not moving much could be bc they wanna charge u extra or bc...

    How do you handle pushback from your veterinarian?

    The best nutricionist/gastroenterologist in my country does not recommend raw diet for various reasons, incomplete, parasites etc. He does recommend natural diet tho, meaning cooked meals (just not only meat)

    Help! Is my vet scamming me?

    I was going to say, if you are feeling off about a vets indication, its never just the indication its always their attitude or what u see at the clinic. When in doubt look for a second opinion, a couple of days and ur doubts will be cleared. Ive dealt with money hungry vets who has only made my...
