Hello,My 16 yr old cat yesterday had a trip to the vets to get his teeth sorted some cleaned and some removed. He also has a hyper thyroid condition tgat he is on meds for.Everything went fine e during the procedure and during the treatment he was given a sedation. When I went to pick him up the vet said he was coming round very slowly this was a few hours after the surgery. So I returned a little later and he was still well out of it. He was paddling bit like kneeding but using the full legs to move and mainly just his back legs. He was also unable to stand. I brought him home and he had a fit in the car, once inside he then had a few more fits so I took him to the emergency vet they gave him diazipan which stopped the fits however during all this from picking him up at tea time till the following morning he was awake. Also hadn't eaten anything since 8pm the evening b4. He was now hardly moving so we went back to the vets first thing and they took him for the day and monitored him. He has managed to eat while there and again this evening he is back home with me and has eaten a fair bit like 4 spoons of high protein cat dinner. However he's been asleep for a while now and was most of the time while at the vets he's not really with it at all and is eating by licking the food from my had while totally incapacitated in his bed. He's had a few wees just in the bed and the vet helped him have one so he's not dehydrated. We think he might have had a stroke or the fits have caused damage and also the added complications of the meds and his underlying thyroid problem. I was hoping that someone might have had a cat in a similar way and hear what they had to say to see what his recovery chance is as basically he's bed ridden at the moment. It's worth mentioning he can feel his toes and responds to his feet being touched. Right now he's just asleep and I'm hoping the lack of movement is just due to him being that exhausted. Any story's or advice or help would be greatly appreciated.
