My cat is recently underwent surgery for a removal of a large blood clot from his bladder caused by various infections and the appearance of stones and a urethral blockage. Not to mention during the surgery they removed some crystals from his bladder as well.
During his stay at the vet he had a catheter in him for 3 days being flushed out, and was able to pee on his own after being on fluids for awhile to get his kidney levels back to normal.
Following surgery and back at home we have been keeping a close on him checking his urination habits.
When he first came home, he pee'd on his own but I noticed not that much, a little bit each time he went in a span in an hour or so. He basically just went back to the litter box to let a little bit out, every time he went. Sometimes he'll get a lot more out than usual, but lately even now after a week of being home he just urinates a little.
It's basically just him going al ittle bit each time, and def. not as much as a normal cat would. Comparing this cat to my other cats that did not have surgery, they urinate one steady a flow while he just is able to pass a little bit each time.
My vet said its normal since hes recovering from an extensive bladder surgery, scrapping out crystals and removing a large growth.
I was just wondering how long it takes for him to get back a normal stream of urine? I can imagine being in his position and being annoyed. However he shows no signs of distress when urinating, and he is eating fine, playing, purring up a storm and in a general good mood. Im just still concerned about his urination after all he has been through some scary situations already with a urethral blockage and almost dying.
Just wanting some advice for some people who had to deal with a cat post-bladder / cystectomy surgery.
