**UPDATE** got back from the vet - (forgot to mention earlier that Guero had thrown up this morning as well as howling in pain...)
Vet found no blockage in his urethra! Thank Goodness! He was able to express all of Guero's urine. He gave Guero a cortisone shot - $35.00 - no office fee. Found out that Guero saw the vet assistant yesterday and received a duo shot of Convenia (antibiotic) and dextromethorphan (cough med for humans). Apparently Dextro can be used to suppress more than
coughs, but is short
acting and did not help the swelling.
Last month, Guero was given a Convenia shot and Depo for his UTI. Basically what has happened: As soon as Convenia was out of his system, infection came back. If the UTI comes back again in 12 days, vet will give him a different antibiotic.
Praying that this UTI can get vanquished and Guero won't need an operation to open his urethra.
and Silvia, Guero's Mom.
If you have Facebook, you can
let Silvia know you are praying -
First of all thanks so much for all your support of Silvia and her kitty kids...
We have enough funds to pay rent today, plus 25.00 over.
Yet now we need the power of the paw for Guero.
cat Guero got sick again with bladder/ urinary tract infection over the
weekend. She took him to the vet yesterday with a friend - vet gave
him a shot of depo and
antibiotic . He felt
better until last night and started getting worse.
texted me early this am. All the other cats are upset with him and he is trying to pee everywhere. Will be going to vet in about an hour... Please
pray. I have some credit to pay the bill..(I only have 160.00 in credit... I pray the bill will be less than that.) until funds come in from You Caring.
Please, please pray for Guero.
Thanks so much.... will update later
(don't have a smart phone - will update when back at pc)
