Georgie needed emergency care and 4 days in the hospital to address his urinary blockage.
GEORGIE came into our care with a urinary blockage. If not addressed, this condition is fatal because toxins back up into the cat’s kidneys. The severity of this condition is worse for males because they block more easily than females.
When Georgie arrived at the vet hospital he was completely blocked. His kidney values – denoting toxins in his kidneys – were sky high. With immediate intervention – a urinary catheter was inserted, he was placed on antibiotic, pain and bladder-relaxing medications, and given IV fluids.
Within 24 hours, Georgie’s condition improved – his kidney values returned to normal. This was the first hurdle.
48 hours later, his catheter was removed and so far Georgie is urinating on his own but under close supervision. That was the second hurdle. Georgie is on bladder-relaxing medication and has started special food to prevent future blockages. He will need to stay on this food for life and needs to increase his water intake to also help against future blockages.
If you would like to help us care for Georgie to ensure he fully recovers, please consider being his Guardian Angel.
