Customer Question
She was spayed a...

She was spayed a week ago. She is swollen on her belly area below the incision. She seems really warm.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What sort of animal are we talking about?

A cat about 10 months old.

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. What is the cat's name?

Bootsie

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Bootsie?

She had her shots when she was spayed. She has been a little active and ran out of the house 4 days after she was spayed. Just worried she may have over done it. She has been inside the house since then.
