Thread: Tigs at the night time emergency vets

  1. #1

    Tigs at the night time emergency vets

    I had to leave him there

    The emergency vet said that his bladder wasn't very full but his symptoms of straining on his litter tray and licking his bits lots, pointed to having a very early blockage.

    I had to leave a 100 cheque deposit in case I didn't come back..but you have my cat of course I'm coming back. Well, I suppose some people don't.

    So we have to pick Tigs up tomorrow and take him to our own vets....fingers crossed for him

    Goodness - so hard to leave one overnight, isn't it? A deposit - yeah, right - don't they know they couldn't STOP you from coming back for him?

    Prayers being added for Tigs.

    Thanks Karen & Cinder/Smoke

    It is either a simple infection and antibiotics are needed or it is a bladder blockages which would have beeen fatal if left.

    The vet thought it was the blockage.

    Tigs was so sad when I left him.

    I bet I get more upset having to leave one of mine at the vets than they do. It is so hard to just walk out of there and leave them. Hope he gets well soon and will be alright. Glad you noticed something and got him help right away!!

    Thats what I was thinking, at least he has help even if it a minor problem.

    When it comes down to it, Tigs is way more important than money

    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

    Aww, poor little Tigs. I guess you will be picking him up soon. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he is feeling better.

    Tigs Update

    Tigs is home just for 20 minutes.

    The emergency clinic shares pemises with the PSDA Charity so all emergency cases must be off the premises by 8am and transferred to their own vets.

    It is a blockage and he might need an operation but the vet said we picked it up very early, that must be good.

    That is due to having inside litter trays and we npticed him straining with no result last night.

    They couldn't shift the blockage but managed to extract urine using a needle... yuck..Poor Tigs

    So we have a written report and a urine sample for our vets, I am just waiting for them to open.
