So Smudge Kitty has had a runny, nasty snotty nose for a week, No appts at vet office but finally get her in today and vet tells me she has an oronasal fistula. What the hell. Great.
I can’t look at it because she won’t let me and vet could not get a good look either because SOMEone developed some tortitude - something she has been lacking before. So I have to bring her in so she can be sedated and have it looked at better and a plan for repair or whatever can be developed.
I’m surprised that when she had her dental visit in April (some teeth removed and others cleaned) that the vet did not mention this. I mean, it was probably there at the time as she has had this off and on snotty nose issue for some time that no other vet could get a handle on.
I’m wondering how common this is? How could this have gone undetected for so long? Now what? And what is this going to cost me? Does she need to eat special food? Toss some jingles this way for Miss Smudge.
