stressful surgery tomorrow
My cat Squirt has had both kidney and bladder oxalate stones for awhile, although he has been having trouble peeing these last few weeks. He also has a grade IV/V heart murmur, which just recently got worse. My vet and I discussed the options, and after an x-ray where we saw more stones/bigger stones, decided on surgery to remove the bladder stones. Hopefully, he will come out of anesthesia ok, even with his heart condition.
Please keep Squirt in your thoughts and prayers. He is my baby. I have taken care of him for 6 years, and I don't know what I would do w/out him. He also has megacolon (chronic constipation), and I give him an enema at home every 3 days or so. He is the best, sweetest boy EVER and has been tolerant of so much in his short life.
Karie and Squirt
