New Kitten Woes
First, my mistake. 6 weeks old. Forgot about the "minimum 8 weeks". The kitten was for Scott, my BF, who lost his 19 year old cat to old age. And they connected like there was no tomorrow!!
Lady said the kittens were vaccinated, and dewormed.
First day, did not poop or eat. But, hey, new home! Stress for cats and kittens alike to move to a new place.
Second day, one strained poop - normal looking, no worms, no discoloration.
Today... Well... She had an issue with a very temporary (under 2-4 hours) prolapsed anus. For those unknowing to that term, it means the internal parts of the bottom come out! It is not as dangerous as rectal prolapse which is an immediate "TO THE VET!"
Asked the lady about it, she said she would deal with it tomorrow, ask her vet, and get her in ASAP... Then she said to push it back in myself. I already looked it up. That is how I knew what it was (yucky sight!), and what NOT TO DO AND WHAT TO DO.
I asked an actual vet assistant. AKA my brother's girlfriend. Her mom is also a Persian cat breeder. The one bottle (as shown on the left) IS STERILIZED WATER used to mix the powder substance in bottle B, on the right.
And again for those who do not know... Those little bottles, the vet does not give you (which she uses a vet, but did the vaccine herself). That is how we know she did it herself.
BIG SLAP IN THE FACE PROBLEM.
The vaccine... HAS NOT BEEN PUNCTURED. You take a needle to the top of the lid, to add the water, then you shake it up so it is a mixed dark pink, then you use a syringe needle to remove it, and vaccinate the cat. The small amount of vaccine left in there, is light pink. The lid seal is also broken.
ANOTHER LARGER SLAP IN THE FACE PROBLEM.
That bottle... Is made for 12 months and older. Give it to a kitten and they will die within 24 hours or less. So no, the kitten was not vaccinated.
And as an added measure... The "fancy natural food" she gave us in a bag, is Iams. Not natural. Not fancy. Actually it is one of the leading foods that causes constipation and upset tummies. Luckily I prefer Whiskas, which we have the kitty formula (and left over from adult), also got wet foods (bi-product free) and I was recommended to give gravy to her, due to the low iron levels (causes pale gums). Luckily, she drinks water. GOOD.
