Glad to hear she's doing better.Hi again. Kitty is doing better, this morning she followed me to the kitchen and chilled with me for a bit. She even started yapping at a fly She's had the tiniest bit of food and water, I guess it's a start. She's walking a lot better and seems to be in a lot less pain.
I think the blue stuff is methylene blue. The vet said that once that wears off I should dab some betadine on the incision. Also no cone but the vet said I should go back to them asap if she starts pulling at her stitches. So far she hasn't.
Now it's pill time and I can't seem to get her to take it. She spit it out a few times and ended up running (or rather walking) away from me. If she were eating I would crush the pill and sprinkle it on her food but she isn't. Any tips on that?
If she's eating now - you can try wrapping the pill into a piece of deli meat too, such as ham, turkey, chicken or even some cheese if she enjoys that. One of our cats was very hard to pill but never turned down human treats so we learned to pill him that way if the pill was small enough or, if it could be cut into smaller pieces (get a pill splitter at a drug store, worth having anyway). You can also see if she will eat a Pill Pocket treat and push it into one of those. Some cats really like them.
