hello everyone, my cat got attacked by a dog and I rushed her to the vet he did X-rays and found no breaks. I went home with her and the next day her jaw looked crooked. I went to another vet to get second opinion and he took X-rays of different angles and found she had a fracture near the Tmj joint. He said it was far back on one side of her mouth and said it was uncommon for that bone to fracture. He couldn’t repaired it with wires because of the location of the fracture. What he did instead is “cement” her front teeth shut with a special acrylic. He put a tube on the side of her neck for feeding. Her mouth is completely shut. He said that if she vomits she could die. I’m terrified of that because I am new to tube feeding and heard that it is common for cats the vomit during tube feeding. The first day I fed her only about 15cc of watered down a/d food and about 25cc of water both divided into 3 feedings. I didn’t want to over do it the first day since she hasn’t eaten in 3 days only water and Iv fluids. Last night she ripped the top (the plastic part) of her feeding tube off and I placed it back. I had a e collar on her so not she how she did that. I’m worried of feeding her too much and her vomiting. She has always eaten in small amounts and not very much. She is an 8 pound cat. The vet wants me to feed her a whole can of a/d a day. Plus about 200mls of water. But each time I feed she starts swallowing a lot and I heard that means she might vomit so I stop and wait a bit then continue but around 10cc of food she starts to swallow a lot and make a hacking noise so I stop altogether. I wait 5 hours before trying again and by the third time she seems really full and immediately starts to make the hatching noise. I called the vet and he said that it’s normal but I know my cat and that doesn’t seem normal. She has always had a sensitive stomach and vomited a couple times a month. The vet said she would have to be like this for 4 to 6 weeks! The tube is placed correctly he said after doing an X-ray. I guess my question is if anyone had had experience tube feeding, what your experiences were and maybe some advice. Sorry for the long post but I’m so worried.
