Not sure if urinary blockage

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 

Mycat is a male of 8 years of age. A week or so back he had a kidney blockage. He was left with a probe. The second he took it out, thecat. He also couldnt poop.  After the probe was out, he coldnt urnae again and cuz of pan of bouth he slipped down the stairs and hit his head. The brain was slightly inflkamated.

From the hit he recovers. 30 hours ago or so peed quite a bit. But after 2 dys of noo food and only a bit of mlk and water , he did not pee or poop[ as the vet expected. Now is sunday and day off. What can i doo?  

 

After 2 days if he drank and ate quite  bit.. coukd that slower his metabolism ?

I don't think it works that way in cats. 

 

When did he start eating and drinking again?  30 hours ago?

AFter the accident he did not eat for a day. Then ate 8-10 grams of wet food, a small boul of water, and 2 ofr milk (tea cup plates) n the evening he peed quite a bit. The next day ate 100 grams of special recovery food and drank a lot mlik an water. Belly rubs were relaxing him. So yesterday all day no pee no poop. Today also. He seems some simptoms are back. the vet has the day off but he will call me for his treatment for the head concusion.

 

Will expresing the bladder and bowels manulay help?

Afetr being thought by vet?

 

 am rly worried

I'm not sure how to help you because I don't quite understand the symptoms (has he gone into the litterbox to try and pee? or you just haven't seen him pee?) but please don't give your kitty milk or yogurt.  Those things can cause diarrhea and other ailments in cats.  Just give him water and cat food.

I would NOT try to manually express a cat's bowels or bladder if I suspected a blockage. Instead I would be returning kitty to the vet.

Absolutely do not attempt that as you could cause extreme pain or damage to your cat's bladder. I would not wait and take your kitty back to the vet asap. He could be blocking again and needs to be checked by your vet. I am sorry you and your cat are dealing with this. Mega, mega vibes.

i was rubbing gently (more like petting). I did just after my latest post. They probed him again. A lot of sand came out.My hope is that the probe wont clog.He just came out of diziness more or less. He wasnt completly under ( tranquilised only, no anestetic) because of his head trauma. He overall is better. He was sleeping on my lap almost all evening, The vet put him on convalescence canned food, witch he loves. 

 

Tomorrow to vet for his treatment and dayly check-up. I plan to have his bladder under x-ray this week. Its a must. Of course, under the vet's orders.

I have to be carrfeull now that he wont take his probe out again,

He is one swift fella.

 

we need to put aa cone on him as the vet said. But i fear for causing him more stress. Any advice on this?

My father thought of dipers,  cat dipers. But they seem hard to find in my region.

 

i hope he will be all right.

 

Who else will open the 1.5 meter high fridge door and still food?rub.gif

 

Thank u all for the support

i finally got him on collar. Last night i crashed and he took the chance to chew and try to pull his second probe oud. the vet manage to reopen it, That cat .... argghh. well that makes him interesting and himself caticon.gif. i got him a nice cone collar with cushin on bouth edges,. the stroger he gets. The faster he runs away from vet. He is so strong he  got away from my brother

He even peed in the litter box

 

he even managed to drink his milk with the collar on. He put the edge of the plate in the collar and drink away..

oh dear. I am sorry that he has been able to get that probe out. OUCH. Yes, you need a bigger collar then. I would think the store would exchange it and I would certainly try. Gosh, I am so sorry for your cat for you. Your doing a great job trying to help your kitty and doing everything right by him. Poor guy with all of that sand. Good thing you got him back to the vet. He will need a diet change and talk with the vet on this. Is he eating wet/canned food? No more dry food for this kitty if you can help it. AW - so sorry about all of this. MEGA vibes.gifvibes.gifvibes.gifvibes.gifvibes.gifvibes.gifvibes.gifvibes.gifvibes.gif for your kitty. and hugs.gifhugs.gif for you.

he peed on his own toay twice. my fear is that the vet will scold me. Now he sleeps soundly. these days he is quite better, But being trabquilised again...thats my fear. Not fully under. His diet is on special convalescence cans, water and milk.

Good to hear that he has peed normally, twice. But, headscratch.gif HUH? on the diet??? I would not give a cat milk either. May I ask where you live?

I will post some articles that I think may offer you some explanation of what is going with your Tei kitty. rub.gif

i took him to the vet today, It was decided to leave him be till tomorrow with no probe and see how he behaves. He had the probe for 4 days or so. 

Because his recovery will last a bit also from the hit in head my worry is his atempts to go upstairs.

I'm glad he is peeing on his own again.  I think the key to keeping him unblocked is diet and plenty, PLENTY of fluids.  Try to keep from feeding him kibble ever again (not sure if you ever fed him that, but try not to!)  You can add water his food if he won't drink enough on his own.  Does he like to drink from the faucet?  If so, you could try getting him a fountain.

Good luck keeping that big boy in line wink.gif

my cat recovered well. The vet put him on home treatmeant. Vitamine and mineral complex called Veyo i think. smells darn good. But his appetite is low. After the special convalescence can he refuses urinary can. eats it out of need. We found some kibble that vet recomended..of course he prefers the most expensive one. If u try mix can and dry he wont be fooled. 

 

My cat is to smart,.. jaw-dropping.gif

 

The treatment with b vitamins  (shots\) and anti inflataion shots was restarterd. but from 3 in 3days now. Some musclells still are tight, 

 

He goes down on his own,

 

The veyo should enable him to eat more.

 

Any tricks i can try?
