42. A 2-year-old cat passes pus - pyometra

Saturday May 14, 2015

Short thunderstorm and overcast skies. Dr Daniel operated on a pyometra cat which is a rare condition of cats in Singapore. Most home cats are spayed as their noisy caterwauling disturbs neighbours at night. Around 80% of Singaporeans live in apartments and this noise nuisance can cause bad relationships with neighbours. Some think that the female cat had been abused and hence screamed so loudly in the middle of the night.

This cat had passed pus in the vagina. The first vet was phoned but no consultation was made. The cat was brought to the second vet. An ultrasound showed either pyometra or mucometra. A quotation of $1,800 for the surgery was made with hospitalisation of $400 per day, according to the owner. She was advised to find a more "affordable" vet by the second vet. 

The cat was spayed by Dr Daniel at Toa Payoh Vets. It is best to check out the prices before sending the cat to emergency vets as prices can be very high.
