OK, my daughter adopted the runt from our barn cats litter, because she was so feeble, no one wanted her. We adopted out her brother and sister and she was so traumatized when they left, that it caused even more health problems, besides making everyone feel terrible. So a year went by and she was doing well then the summer came and my daughter (who's in college) brought her home for the summer break. And had her spayed. She recovered beautifully, but two weeks later she was attacked by one of our cats, and had some pretty serious wounds that required stitching. While in recovery at the vets, she caught her leg in their cage and dislocated her hip..The vet accepted full responsiblility for this accident, but the hip dislocation required more surgery, and they ate the cost of that. she was in a no-chew collar for a month, and then we removed it, as the wound healed. She promptly ripped it open. That has happened continually since. The vet sewed it up again the first few times at no charge, but the last time he refused to use anesthesia, and was very rude. Basically since then they have told my daughter there is nothing they can do for the cat. The last few times she has just plastered the cat together herself, and kept her continually in a baby tee shirt or a collar. Every time the wound heals up, she rips it open again. We think the vet has left a stitch in the original surgical wound that never dissolved, and that is what is causing all this irritation. The vet refuses to acknowledge this and says they're not going to open her up again to see. My daughter (who is on a college student budget and schedule) is at her wits end. Frankly, the thought of euthanizing the cat has crossed my mind, but I know that is out of the question. So what can we do? Anyone's thoughts would be very much appreciated! HELP!!!!!
