Foster Having Trouble Post-Spay


Recommended Posts

Ugh, what a week.

 

Juliette went in for her spay yesterday. All was fine until she was coming out of anesthesia and she started vomiting. Vet released her last night and said to keep an eye on her. She vomited throughout the night. Called the e-vet and they said to watch for signs of dehydration, etc.

 

This morning, she's still vomiting, and the original vet was called - they weren't too concerned. I asked the foster home to bring her into a second vet for another opinion, because this was just not right.

 

Her temp is down to 98. Her eyes are dilated and she's groggy. Her gums are pale/white and she's still vomiting. They admitted her and we're now just waiting for the call back with any update.

 

Any experiences? Thoughts? :(

Soo sorry to hear this. It could be a severe reaction to the anesthetic, and, at this point, what you are describing are symptoms of SHOCK. She could be bleeding internally, ... anything at this point.

 

I am glad she is being admitted. They will most likely try warming her slowly with a warming blanket and warm IV fluids, do bloodwork, to see what her red blood count is, and go from there.

 

Sending her many prayers and a lot of good thoughts!

Pale white gums usually mean bleeding somewhere. I'm glad you've got her at a vet. Hopefully she'll pull out of this. She has my prayers.

Emma, is this the same vet that did Abe's neuter surgery? This sounds horrible to me, pale gums, vomiting,low temp, sounds like she had a reaction to the anesthesia. Poor Juliette, she will be in my prayers, I hope she pulls through this, can she be seen by a specialist?

Nope, different vet, different practice... heck, different part of the state entirely!

Thinking of Juliette (and her foster family). Praying she is getting the treatment she needs and has the strength and determination to make a full recovery.

Juliette is doing much better this morning. No vomiting, temp is up to 100. Vet will release her this afternoon.

 

She feels it was the telazol that was used for induction in the anesthesia protocol. Anyone have any experiences with tealzol?

This is in the Grey Adoption pkg by Bill Feeman DVM:

 

Induction agents: Telazol, Propofol and Ketamine/Valium are all perfectly appropriate

 

anesthetics for Greyhounds. I would recommend using whichever your veterinarian is most

 

familiar with. just remember no thiobarbiturates (Thiopenthol).

 

 

Most vets I use, use propofol. I would ask what other meds they used.

My vet/former employer in Florida, used Valium and Ketamine. I like the Propofol, but a lot of vets don't use it. Like humans, a grey, or any animal can have a reaction to ANY type of anesthesia.

 

I am sooo glad Juliette is better. Thank GOD it was caught in time!

So glad to hear that Juliette is doing better, sigh of relief! I agree that a reaction to anesthesia can always happen whether it be a human or animal. Hope her recovery is without any more complications, big hugs and kisses to the poor baby.

I hope she continues to improve; my heart sank when I read about her low temp and pale gums. Sending prayers that she is all better in no time.
