Tell Your Story:

Stevie Marie is a tiny whisp of white fluff. She is a Persian purebred cat. She is also about the most adorable charming kitten you will ever meet. She is a purring, bread making affectionate girl. It is very easy to see why her mom adores her as much as she does.

When it came time to spay her (she is 7 months old), her mom wanted to inquire about all of the safe options to insure the safest spay (OHE) procedure for her.

I, as her veterinary surgeon, cannot overemphasize enough how imperative it is to be super over worried about these patients and anesthesia. We have intentionally bred them to have a blunted face, an almost non-existent nasal openings and trouble breathing even under the most favorable of conditions. Adding anesthesia, or any kind of respiratory depressant can starve the body of oxygen, and even minutes without adequate oxygen flow can be life threatening if not dangerously detrimental.

Stevie’s pre op plan included her kitten series of vaccines and pre op blood work (min chem panel and CBC $60

spay procedure
pre and post op mask oxygenation $30
i.v catheter, i.v. fluids, i.v. fluid pump $115
