Kittens are typically delivered two weeks after the fertilized female cat mates. If you are experiencing erratic behavior for a long period of time, lack of appetite, or vomiting, then your pet may still have kittens inside. It is important to visit your veterinarian if you believe that you still have kittens inside because they can infect your pet’s mammary glands and uterus. Your veterinarian will perform an ultrasound to find out if there are any more kittens in their uterus.
How to tell if cat still has kittens inside?
There are many signs that can help you to determine if your cat is pregnant or has kittens inside. If your cat’s stomach is swollen, the cat may still have kittens inside. If your cat seems to be having trouble urinating or defecating, she may have a urinary tract infection. Other symptoms of pregnancy are an increase in appetite and weight gain.
There are many ways you can find out if your cat is pregnant. One is to check your cat’s vaginal discharge. If it is green, it will be a sign that your cat is pregnant. If the discharge is clear, it may indicate that the kittens are not in the uterus yet.
The best time to find out if your cat is pregnant is when your cat is in heat. The heat cycle lasts for about 5 weeks, and lasts for about 10 days. Some cats do not have heat cycles, but some cats do. If your cat is in heat, you can have her checked for pregnancy.
When to get your cat checked by a vet?
Check your cat if you are unsure about its impregnation. Most veterinarians will not perform x-rays unless the owner of the cat is sure that his or her pet is pregnant. If you do, then it may be necessary to remove your pet’s uterus for surgery. Your veterinarian can perform an ultrasound test on your cat to determine whether or not your cat is pregnant.
What to do if you find out your cat is still pregnant?
If you find out that your cat is still pregnant, it is important to visit the veterinarian. The veterinarian can give medication to terminate the pregnancy through injection or orally. Should you choose to terminate the pregnancy, your pet should be checked regularly for injury or infection until labor begins.
A veterinary check-up for your pet is not expensive. Veterinary checkups are fairly inexpensive and usually range anywhere between $35 to $115 dollars depending on the location where you see your veterinarian. A regular visit for a cat costs around $20-40. If you do not have an established relationship with a vet, it may cost slightly more than what is stated above.
If you think your cat may still have kittens inside, it is important to visit a veterinarian as soon as possible for help and advice. A veterinarian will be able to tell if you cat has kittens inside or not with an ultrasound exam.
