Title: Leo is back at the vets t...Leo is back at the vets today. He is still having a problem going to the bathroom. I thought he had gone the last several days as I am sure there was “Leo” sized/shaped stool in the boxes, but facts have proved me wrong.
Last night about 11pm Leo jumped off the bed and went to the litter box, where he strained for a while. I then heard an odd sound and went to check on him and he had thrown-up his dinner and was obviously in some pain (this is extremely abnormal for him, he has only ever thrown-up [including hairballs] 2 times I have had him, and they were from enemas). He was walking odder than usual and not sitting right and laying at an odd angle. I knew he was badly impacted at that point and called the emergency # at the vet to tell them about it and that I was bringing him in at 7:30am.
The fact he is so blocked that he is throwing-up is not good at all. I stayed with him till the wee hours on the floor, next to him, trying to pet, brush and talk to him. When I woke in the morning he had managed to get about 3 pieces of stool out, but as usual they were round and LARGE in diameter and so dry they were like rocks. I carefully packed the stool samples up to take with us and got him to the vet at 7:35am.
I called the vet about 90 minutes ago to see how he was and I was told he is/was badly impacted. He has had an enema and defecated from it. He was STILL pretty full and was going to get another enema. They also want his subcutaneous fluids increased from 2 to 3 times a week.
Hopefully they will call me soon and tell me he is ready to go home.
