It's not the first time my cat Skitterz has had this issue. At first when he was a kitten a vet told me he gets blocked anal glands and i could squeeze them out if i wanted to but it's very painful. He also told me that Skitterz would only have this problem a few hours and he'd get better. Lately however I don't think this is the problem. Today I woke to my boy crying really loud, throwing up, liquid poop literally just pouring out of his bum and he gets temperatures. The least of the issue is that there are drops of poop all over my house when this happens but I really don't care about that as long as Skitterz gets better. He gets yearly checkups with the vet and gets all his shots. This is done every May. I was just wondering if anyone else has ever encountered this problem? Is there something I should do for my boy. I find vets are just money hungry and will tell me to bring him in which would be an emergency visit and cost like $200 just to get him in the door! I love my son dearly but at the same time I don't want to over react to something that he may just get 2-3 times a year last for a day and go away and there really be nothing wrong with him. He does not go outside ever he's afraid of being outside so he couldn't have picked something up. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
