Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi this is Dr. Hill Please give me a moment to type my full response. Thank you
So, first let me address the medical issue. My honest answer is that what you are describing does not make sense, so I need to clarify in order to give you a better idea on cost. Did Jerry have a rhinoscopy, where they stick a tube with a camera in his nose? It does not make sense that they would need to stitch up a flap in his nose. Do you have any written discharge instructions or your invoice from the procedure stating what was done? This may help discern what was done
So the surgery would be with the nostril itself and not in the nasal cavity or in the mouth.
Is the flap of tissue in his mouth that is restricting the airway?
If it is a flap in his mouth that is restricting his airway, then that sounds like an elongated soft palate which would be very unusual in a cat.
Were you wanting a phone call to discuss?
It sounds like you need more clarification from your veterinarian as to what was found. I would contact her tomorrow and ask for a written statement of what was found and the exact procedure she is recommending along with an estimate. That way we can review it together and I will be able to provide more accurate information. Let me know once you have the information.
