My cat has to go to the vet

Recommended Posts

I always get worried when I take my little bugger to the vet. At one year he developed a heart murmur (Sp?). Next he was vomitting all of the time (favorite brand was IAMS- hello, recall!) now he is peeing everywhere! I clean his litter, he uses it then goes out and pees on FI's work boots! WTF!!! It happens at least once a day for the past 2 weeks. He goes in at 1:45 today to get checked. Mike says we'll put him down. I tell Mike I'll put him down before I put Calvin (cat) downsmile67.gifgirl_werewolf.gif

Just had to vent ladies...I deal with thing better if I have a chance to release quickly. Thanks for letting me bitch!blush2.gif

You know....I'm a very tolerant person.Hell I do live with Mike!!! But I have no patience for a vet who really doesn't care about my pet and is apparently only interested in having me buy product. I have to say that it pisses me off to no end. censored.gif The stupid vet took Calvin and tried to collect a urine sample. I told him that he peed just before we left the house. Didn't listen to me. Calvin is a VERY weary cat. He SCREAMS if he's unsure about people or a situation he's in. It sounds like we're beating him when we have to take him out of the house. Anyway, the vet takes him away from me and this sets off the screaming. It then proceeds to upset everyone and every animal in the clinic. I go to the vet and ask him if I can help to settle him down and he says that I would "only set him off more". ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!! It's my jacket that he was trying to get inside of to hide from the vet in the first place. After failing to produce a urine sample (do you think!!!) , the vet then wanted me to leave him there with them until Calvin urinated . He then started to spout out the cost of leaving him there. I told him to go to hell and we walked out of there with a traumatized cat. He won't even go near the door now because he's afraid that we may be taking him outside. The poor baby. I feel like a schmuk for taking him to a place like that. Think it's time to interview a new vet. Sorry ladies but I'm so pissed right now. I wanted to punch him out. Thanks for letting me vent.

My sister's cat started peeing everywhere and it turned out he had a UTI and crystals in his urine. They changed his cat food and he was better.

Hope you can find another vet to help you out!

Same thing happened w/ my kitty. He's had 3 emergencies in the last 2 years. That was the first- our clinic vet told us he was going to need a very expensive, emasculating surgery so we rushed him to the ER/ OR vet here in brooklyn and the very nice, calm, talented vet got him better without surgery (though it cost us over $1k). He was also put on a special diet, and was all better.

 

Then the clinic vet told me he probably had cancer. I cried for 3 days. It turned out to be a bug bite.

 

Then he had an asthma attack. The clinic vet told me he couldn't hear his heartbeat and he was suffering a cardiac episode. The ER vets stabilized him with o2 therapy and sent him home the next day. (again, $1200 bill).

 

So I can relate. Find a good vet for your kitty asap. I am going to someone else now. I think this vet may actually like catscat.gif

Poor Calvin, have you found a new vet yethuh.gif? I am so happy with ours, but my parents use to take our dogs there many many years ago, and I have used the same office for all my animals. the original vet has since retired but the one that bought it has worked for the original vet for years and she is great. It so important to find someone that you trust and is good with the animals

We lucked out with our vet. We needed to get Boots (Little one on the right in my avatar) spayed, so we just took her to the animal hospital down the street and they did an amazing job. We never actually saw the vet the day of her surgery, we just left her with the girls at the front desk. The day we went back to get her stitches out we actually met her vet and he was a sweetheart, telling us that we had an adorable little girl and was petting her and made her feel very comfortable while he took her stitches out and even let me hold her while he was removing them :) So it's a fluke that we have such a good vet, but it's a great feeling knowing that we do and that we have someone we can trust with our girls

 

Oh, and our oldest cat, Shadow (on the left) actually had a big problem with vomiting too. We took her off IAMS and now she just coughs up hairballs once every blue moon

Have you taken Calvin to a new vet yet? It sounds like he has either a uti, bladder infection or possibly bladder stones. My cat had stones and had to have surgery, but now he has a special food and we've had no problems since.

 

Be very careful with a male cat and bladder problems. They can become blocked and die in a very short time period. Its very serious.

 

Let us know what happens!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
