⚠️ BLOCKED CAT ⚠️
This sweet boys name is Willow. We got a distressed call from Willows Mum late at night - he was not moving and crying out in pain! 😓💔 We knew something was wrong and got him in straight away - turns out he had a URETHRAL OBSTRUCTION!
Male cats are particularly susceptible to this condition - their urethras become blocked and they can not urinate. This has the potential to be life threatening!
Willow was anaesthetised, and a urinary catheter was placed to unblock his urethra and empty his bladder. This catheter stays in place for a few days to ensure urine can flow safely.
Willow will now be on a special diet for life to avoid this problem again. Commitment and a quick response from his owners saved his life!
Straining to urinate
Blood in urine
Painful to touch abdomen
Loss of appetite
Be sure to act quickly if your cat shows these symptoms!
