Q. My cat has been spayed and went into heat. The vet went back in after test show she had a high hormone level. She is in heat again what do I do?

Answered By

A. Sometimes a tiny bit of tissue can be left behind after a spay which means a cat can still have a season. This is shown up by a blood test which you have already have done. Unfortunately it is impossible to find this bit of tissue most of the time as it is so so tiny so there is nothing that can be done. Your cat will be fine and live a normal happy life and cannot become pregnant so you won't have any nasty surprises.
