her teets are swollen she is spayed
Cat Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 11 months ago

Thank you. There shouldn't be a reproductive hormonal influence on her teats if she's been spayed properly. If an ovarian remnant existed, she would also be showing signs of heat from time to time. Is that the case?
