The cyctotomy was cancelled after Rajah was prepped and given anesthesia, it was determined her red blood count was low. I was to pick her up at 2:30 pm that day.
It is stated that a pre surgical exam / screen was ordered. There is no mention of a life threatening condition on her discharge instructions. Bringing her back in one week for more blood work did not indicate she was seriously ill.
