    Please keep Joseph in your thoughts

    So yesterday I ended up taking Joseph to the emergency vet and it turns out that he was blocked. I had been treating him for a UTI for about a week, but on Saturday morning when he didn't wake me up I sensed something was wrong. I should have taken him to the vet on Saturday night, but it was late and I was tired. So I took him Sunday morning. It turns out that his urthera was blocked and had been for about a day. I picked him up from the emergency vet this morning and took him to one of my regular vets. But he looked so unhappy with the cone, IV, and catheter in place. But at least he is alive and doing MUCH better than yesterday...

    Prayers and positive thoughts and healing energies are being sent for Joseph.

    Death thought about it.

    Owee Joseph!! Luckily, a blockage caught quickly is quite fixable! I hope he's back to 100% very soon!

    I received a call from the vet and it turns out that he also has an eye and ear infection and he needs his teeth cleaned

    The vet thinks one of these infections might have caused the original UTI...

    I am so glad there is no permanent damage! Hopefully the dental will ease the infections in his system. Get well soon, Joseph!

    I get to pick Joseph up this afternoon from the vet's office. He is coming home with all kinds of pills and drops, so the next week or so will be fun But he is coming home!

    Joseph also had eye problems and couldn't see, so the vet did a little surgery to remove some of the adhesions on the third eye lid. Now I have to take him to the vet ophthalmologist in the area to see if any of his sight can be recovered (which would be a nice surprise for him).

    But I am going to hate to see this vet bill (even though it was worth it)
