Thanks everyone. I'm glad Dr. Boltz did the surgery too, because what would have happened if I had taken him to a low cost spay/neuter which I was considering in the beginning? Would they have caught it as fast as Dr. Boltz? (also, nice to note she didn't charge me for the additional anesthesia or the CBC!)
Malachi is a little abnormal in general, so it's not surprising that his wasn't just a normal procedure. I talked to Linda, and he was a pretty sick kitten in the beginning and he has a bit of stunted growth as well (he has shorter legs than the norm for Orientals), so he's probably a bit more sensitive to things.
I was surprised that a suture was put in since they aren't typically used, but due to the bleeding, I think it was just a precaution. When I went to pick him up last night, the vet tech was telling me that he had blood all over his face from licking the area and there was blood in the cage too right after the surgery, so they caught it pretty quickly. Poor little Malachi.
They gave me some pain killers to take home and also microchip info to fill out. Since he was under anesthesia, I figured I'd get him microchipped at the same time.
He actually perked up when I brought him home and he was happy to see Phinehas. He did seem a bit restless, but otherwise seems to be doing ok as of this morning *fingers crossed*
