My kitty is in the hospital with pneumothorax the vet says.

Customer Question
My kitty is in...

My kitty is in the hospital with pneumothorax the vet says. I have just discovered she ate some marijuana cuttings that were planted in Bontone Rooting Powder. She ate the whole thing including the roots. The vet thinks she may recover but its been over a week. We just did connect her eating the plants to what has happened to her. Can she get well? She is 4 years old. Thank you.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know if your kitten will be able to digest that. What is the kitten's name?

Cheri

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Cheri?

She had just been weaker & weaker & wasn't eating or drinking. I took her to 3 different vets who said nothing was wrong. This last vet did xray & a throat endocope

I just need to know if she can get better? The vet does not think the rooting powder had anything to do with this condition but says the kitty may get better with rest.

Thank you for your response Dr. Perry. I cancelled this service. I did not have the patience to wait so long for an answer. The kitty is in an oxygen kennel since last Thursday & is beginning to get better.
