    Peewee Update

    Advertisements
    We were going to try and tough it out for the night, but he started thrashing in his carrier. When I opened the lid, blood came flying out. It looks like someone sprayed my wall in blood.

    Well, DJ was furious and I was crying hysterically. So we called the emergency vet number. The vet met us and gave him Ketamine. AKA Special K. They rewrapped his paws.

    So, he's out of it. Hopefully he'll stay out of it until tomorrow morning and by then his paws will be nicely clotted.

    I hate myself for doing this, but I felt like I had no other alternative.

    I'm going to be an awful, over-bearing mother to my kids, I just know it. If I'm this neurotic over my cats, I can only imagine what it will be like when I have a baby.

    good luck the clinic I worked out the animals went home same day. But we ALWAYS made sure the bleeding had stopped and of course gave instructions to call an emergency vet if it didn't. The ketamine will calm him but when they come off of it they can go postal. Just try and keep him in a nice quiet and dark area. to you

    Great, she didn't say he'd go ballistic when he wakes up.

    He's in bed with DJ right now.

    Yes. Ketamine acts like a hallucenagentic drug essentially. So they can be really wired and weird when they wake and extremely scared. He will need quiet and dark so he doesnt freak out. Once the ketamine wears off he will be ok and back to his normal self.

    ETA it also will vary on HOW much she gave him . Since she was only calming him she prolly didnt give him a full dosage

    Fan-fucking-tastic. I really hate my life right now. I hate MYSELF for doing this to him. I hate myself even MORE because Peekaboo will have to have it done on Dec 4.

    Oh hun its ok. They use ketamine for spaying and neutering, dentals etc. Its the drug they use to knock em out. Its procedure you didn't do anything wrong. You did what you felt you needed to do for them (the declawing) It's ok. Dont beat yourself up.

    Britt, don't be hard on yourself!! You did what you had to to get your baby to relax and calm down. He'll be okay, and as soon as he clots everything will be better!!!
