Thanks for the replies. I talked to my vet today about it, while she doesn't do the procedure she referred me to a clinic that does. The cost altogether would be $1150.00 and that includes any testing, the treatment, hospitalization, etc. It's going to take me around two months or so to get the cash together (the full amount is due at the time of treatment) but I can afford it no problem.
Shadow tolerates the Tapazol, he just tolerate it being given to him. Everytime I go to pick him up and administer the pills he runs and hides in a place I can't get to.
What kind of cat litter do I need to use for afterwards? i have two other cats, would they be able to use the same litter because I don't think I'd have much of a choice in the matter?

My guess would be that it's a combination of both.
I know I'll end up with a list of instructions for afterwards but what are the things that I need to watch out for besides a possible lack of appetite?
