My poor little Oliver just had to have a cystotomy to remove stones from his bladder. He had it on Sat June 30, 2012 and remained in the hospital until today July 2, 2012. The vet said that he was peeing well at the vets office and his urine was coming out clear, not bloody. When I brought him home he did a few "good and big" pees but the frequent trips to the litter box with little coming out started shortly thereafter. At first the pee was minimal and bloody, but not its minimal and clear. He also stayed under the couch for most of the day, until later at night. Regardless, he's going to the litter box all the time!
Is this normal after having a cystotomy? I know its normal for the urine to be tinged with blood for a few days after the surgery, but shouldnt he be peeing normal "big" pees by now? It's 2 days post op. I feel so because he just went through this surgery and he is still living in the litter box! I just want him to be better.
He is on buprenorphine for pain and his stones have been sent for analysis to see what kind they are. since he blocked twice before this, vet says he may have to have a PU if the stones are calcium oxilate. I
