Does it ever seem like your cat has an accident in one spot and keeps returning to the same spot? Well here's a fun fact: this isn’t their favorite spot to pee or poop. More likely than not, you didn’t clean up the last mess all the way, which is why they keep returning to the scene — or, more accurately, the scent — of the crime.
In the article Feline Urethral Obstruction: Be Aware I covered the ‘what’ of urethral obstruction. In this article I’ll be detailing the things you should know to be prepared for in the event of a urethral obstruction. Hopefully you’ll never need this information, but as with most things in life, it's best to have it and know it's here if you do. After all, when it comes to feline urethral obstruction, your cat’s life is truly at stake.
If you’ve ever had a cat that has suffered a urethral obstruction you can help me help others by taking a minute or two to fill out an online survey about pet owner experiences with this condition. It's completely anonymous and only takes a minute or two to complete. Thank you in advance.
What should I do if I suspect that my cat has a urethral obstruction?
As I started out with and highlighted in the first post of this series… A cat that cannot pee is a cat that’s going to die, unless appropriate veterinary medical care is obtained immediately. Urethral obstruction is a very severe, very acute, very critical medical emergency.
