Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
You should be able to post a picture if you hit the button that looks like a paper clip. I will look at it, but can you tell me more..... when was the spay? How is the cat doing?
Sorry... I just saw that you said today.
Did the veterinarian do anything with the mass... such as send it out for a biopsy?
Can you see the paper clip? It is on the top of the text box at the right.... no hurry. I'll be here for a while.
Its loading.... slowly so I will look at it. I hope it isn't a kidney, but if it is..... they only need one kidney to live.
I can't be completely sure without feeling it and seeing it on cross section, but that looks like an ovarian mass. I understand with the size, shape and consistency that it looks like a kidney, but the uterine horn on the right side of the picture isn't complete and doesn't have a normal ovary. I think the 'mass' is an ovarian tumor. An ovarian tumor would look like an organ when cut. I think the kitty will be fine. You could ask the veterinarian more about the surgery.... ask where the mass was and if it was attache to anything. The kidney is very tightly held against the spine and would have been difficult to remove. An ovarian tumor would have been loose and unattached.
