Q. removal of impacted stool by vet period of recovery
DR. JENNIFER LADD, DVM
A. The recovery of anesthesia or the procedure? Anesthetic recovery is dependent on organ function (liver or kidneys) depending on the anesthetic protocol used. Symptoms continuing beyond 18-24 hours would be very shocking to me. In regards to colon function, the normal function should return quickly. Eating and drinking will help to stimulate gastric motility, and movement of food through the intestines, and colon. If the cat continues to eat, but defecation does not return, contact your veterinarian as their may be neurologic compromise.
