Possible intestinal blockage

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
This is an update on Mitties' constipation. Haven't seen a thing except pee in her box for over a week now. Gave her an enema on Saturday and one usually takes care of things. Nothing. Gave her another enema on Sunday. Nothing. I'm getting scared now. I think I will take her in for an x-ray or something. The enemas usually take care of it but just teeny little "chocolate chips," if even that, will come out. She must have a blockage.

She's acting perfectly fine, but I know something is wrong. She's eating and drinking, but still straining to go.

I hate to give up on my beloved cat but I just don't know what to do anymore. I'll call the vet and keep you posted.

This is new to me. Why is it that you give your kitty enemas on a regular basis?

Kind regards,

I absolutely do not give her enemas on a regular basis. It's just in the last 4 months, she has been struggling with severe constipation. She'll do great with normal stools for about 4 weeks, then out of nowhere, she'll plug up. I give her Laxatone and see if she can pass it on her own, but when she stops eating and is in agony, ONLY THEN do I resort to giving her an enema. Believe me, it's not all the time.

We're going to the vets today to see what it happening. I don't really have the money for this, but my baby is worth it and they'll let me make payments if needed.

Right now I'm in tears over this. I don't know how much longer I can keep doing this over and over again. It's so frustrating and expensive. I'd do anything for my baby girl.
