Kitty 911 | Round 2

Diego spent the weekend at the vet due to yet another complete blockage of his urethra. Arg. He started showing signs that he was having problems on Saturday morning - basically he was spending an inordinate amount of time in the litter box. We knew it was really serious when he started trying to pee outside the box. My husband took him in to our vet (a different one than the one we went to less than 2 weeks ago) and ended up having to leave him there for the weekend.

I picked Diego up from the vet last night and he seems to be doing ok and all it took was the steady hand of the vet, another catheter up his wee wee maker, a ton of fluids, piles and piles of medication, and mucho dinero. Sigh. My husband and I are trying to take things in stride...but we can't help but wonder what the heck the other vet did when we took Diego in 10 days ago (!?!). That visit wasn't cheap and this one cost twice as much. Arg (!!!). I want to give the first vet the benefit of the doubt and believe that she did what she thought needed to be done for Diego at the time...and that this occurrence was inevitable...but I can't help but feel like the first vet didn't do her job. Sigh. Done is done and we hope this is the end of Deigo's issues. Poor little guy.
