i took him to the vets as he is struggling and has not gone for 4 days now. he is peeing but i notice his tail is shaking when he does although he does go quite alot and is leaking everywhere. the vet gave him a steroid injection and told me to not force fed him until tomorrow if the injection doesnt work, the vet said it should raise his blood sugar to get him an appetite. im just worried he is not entertaining food at all. how long does it take for the injection to work?
he had the injection at 17:00pm and its 20:39 now but no difference, it is normal for him to urinate shaking his tail though, im worried about reblockage but he is passing quite a bit of urine aswell.
thankyou so much, im just worried about him because he has been poorly for 10 days now but he did nearly die from the blocked urethra as it was 2.5cm blocked and attacking his left kidney. he just wants to be left alone and keeps quiet. he just looks really bloated at the moment is this common aswell?
thanks, ***** ***** him and said he had slight blood in urine but only a little that showed up on urine test strip. he has been given the steroid injection and synulox tablets and got told to see what he is like on and bring him back friday if no improvement. im just worried as our old vet wanted to recath him again and it could have caused him further problems. i trust our new vet but just wanted second opinion, so thankyou.
