Mods, feel free to move to correct section of board. Posting here due to posting via a tablet with no copy and paste function. Got Rocky in bed with me monitoring him so can't use primary PC.
Time is precious as Friday will be here in few hrs.
Fixed approx 7? months ago, by low cost state of the art spay and neuter clinc Vet #2 associated with.
Absenin / tabby mix
Age: 11-12 months
Active till 2013-01-14
Calm, cool cat.
No changes in household, nor stress.
Current sitution is I need some advice ASAP. Torn betwen current vet in which prices are high and their equipment seems problematic, some lack of attention to details over the years that states they rather not do surgey (Price of surgey unkown, but I'd estimate 300-400 or more), and a vet who seems to have a can do attuide after showed him the Xrays, him stating on a boy it's no big deal to resection segment of lower bowel which appears to be collapsed.)
As I mentioned rice like whiteish wormz segments in Kailies stools 2012-09, trested ALL cats with 23mg Praziqual tablets, except my 17 lb boy J.T who got 1.5 tablets.
Screwed up, and forgot the follow up treatment @ 3 weeks?
2013-01-07 +/- Kailie exihbiting worms again, so her and Rocky treated with (1) 23mg Praziqual (spelling not correct as I'm posting this from a tablet with no copy and paste in the browser.)
So worms have been present recently in his twin sister. Net research indicating on cats below a year, its not uncommon to have a section of the lower bowel collapse unpon themselves, and that a parisite (worms) increases chances of such occuring.
Added Barium to Xray. first xray was nice and clear showing Barium just exiting stomach, 3 inches out.
2nd Xray taken while DuoView digital xray rep was trying to sell vet a $30,000 a machine.
Vet stating her mchine was working perfect prior to his sales visit (Vet is using film).
Xrays clear prior, (banding on top and bottom "clear", good contrast and clarity.
Xrays post sales rep= Very dark, murky.
Q: What does murky Barium Xray show?
About 4 inches from pivot of rear legs, large intestion has section that appears to be 3/8 wide, maybe 3 inches long. Rest looks to be 1 inch in diameter.
Good news is Rocky has eaten wet food several times, about 15 treats without throwing up, nor has had a bowel movement since getting back from vet around 3:30 or so.
Vet #2 who is behind a low cost spay neuter place, thinks most likey problem will reslove by itself, but I think I forgot to mention worms of 2012-09 and 2013-01-07 his sister was exhibiting.
(Did mention that Rocky when we take all the cats out will chew sticks, bushes, acorns)
BTW: I try to be very proactive in policing the house of toothpicks, dental floss, etc.
(I tie the dental floss into a 1.5 inch long section. or as small as I can get it, knotting it upon itself to reduce the lenght, just in case one of the cats, or heck a straving animal at the dump might get ahold of it.)
