    Urinary Tract Obstruction

    Last Saturday our sweet Atticus was frantically trying to pee but couldn't. We immediately took him to the vet where they emptied his bladder and tried to massage the blockage out by hand. Unfortunately, this did not work. We transferred him to a 24-hour vet and had a catheter put in. Three...

    Umbilical hernia repair

    hello! Baldwin had his hernia repair about a week and a half ago now. The incision site is healing very nicely, however there is a lump/ping pong ball looking thing under neath skin.

    Medicine for skin injury- safe or not?!

    Constipated after surgery.

    So Elfie had her surgery last week on Thursday. Then she was put under again that same evening for the bleeding issue. Now I noticed that she wasn't really pooping, but wasn't surprised because she had diarrhea that evening andhadn't eaten in over 24 hrs. Well she still isn't pooping and...

    My cat and I have just gone on a long mysterious illness oddysy. For about 5 months the only thing I heard from 4 vet offices is "Well, all of your test results came up negative, we don't know what's wrong with him".
