      Hi All,
      Thank you so much for the replies.
      I knew she needed to be spayed but hate the thought of having to put her through surgery.
      Poor little thing is so miserable right now and there's nothing I can do for her.
      Her specialist always sends all the information to her regular vet and I have emailed her regular vet all of my questions and concerns. She has an appt. next week for the spay.
      Is there anything special I should ask, is laser better than the old fashion way, any after care that's different or different protocol for the surgery?
      I've read some articles on the internet and it seems the surgery doesn't take too long so that is a small comfort but still I'll be holding my breath the entire time.
      Thank you again for being out there!!!

      Hi Vickie

      Any surgery with a heart cat has a risk. All of my heart cats were spayed
      successfully though as going through heat is also very stressful and a risk.
      It's a balance of risks, also the risk of her getting pregnant, cats do
      escape and boys can climb fences. It's a quick, easy operation to spay and
      reduces the risk of mammary cancer and pyometra. Pyometra is a womb infection
      which is caused by repeated heat cycles without pregnancy and is from
      bacteria getting into the womb. A pyometra can be life threatening, especially
      if the womb is closed and the bacteria can't drain.
