Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
Can you confirm that she went to be spayed, yet you found kittens after the procedure?
How old did the kittens look when you found them?
Did you see mucus/discharge/blood on mum's backside, the kittens, or her nest under the bed?
Did she have milk or developed mammary glands the day she went for the spay?
Has she had it now to feed the kittens?
Hi again Andrew,
I agree that it is a proper mystery and we need to be Sherlock Holmes here.First, if the kittens did not have their eyes open, then we have a <10 day window of age. to work back from. So, the first questions we have to ask are:What day was she spayed? What day did you find the kittens?Had she looked heavier, had pink prominent nipples, or developed mammary glands before she went for the spay?Does she have milk and developed mammary glands when she was found with the kittens /now?Does she have a spay wound from the surgery?Did you find any mucus/.discharge staining the nest (to give us a clue if they were born where they were found)?
