Shiloh Gives Us A Scare
Little Shiloh gave us quite a scare ~ his urethra plugged, making it impossible for him to urinate. We were able get his system working again, fortunately without an anesthetic procedure and urinary catheter. He will be on antibiotics long-term to clear up the associated bladder infection. He saw our internist today to confirm that his bladder, kidneys, and other organs are normal ~ which they are. He will be receiving daily fiber supplementation to keep his colon working well in addition to daily bladder checks.
I'm happy to report that he's now feeling much better and back to playing with his catnip mice (and Scooter) again!
