Generally the cone is left on until the stitches are taken out, so they can't pull the stitches out themselves.

Glassgirl, it sounds like you will just have to wait for the bloodwork to come back. Then, if this veterinarian still can't offer treatment that you are happy with, get a second opinion. It sounds...

Geez... coming to this website and asking about declawing a cat... it's like going to a Vegan board and asking "I don't want your opinion on eating meat... but where can I get some good, cheap veal?"

R. Rish, I believe what you're saying is that the vet gave you even odds only that his eyes would get better, but still felt that otherwise he was doing very well. So basically there is a 50% chance...

I have used Pet ProSolve to get dog pee or vomit out of carpet. It is easy to find, and it does seem to eliminate the smell completely although cat pee smells stronger than dog pee. I would also...
