This could potentially turn into be a very serious issue. I always advise that male cats with urinary issues be evaluated by a veterinarian as soon as possible because urinary obstruction is an emergency situation that we see quite frequently in younger male cats. It often starts as something that could be easily treated- such as a UTI or crystals in the urine and then turns into an awful, stressful situation for the cat and his owner! I would absolutely err on the side of caution and have your veterinarian perform a urinalysis on your cat. Otherwise, you are already doing everything right- providing plenty of fresh water and clean litterboxes. Hope this is helpful information! -Dr. C

I'd say most ER veterinary clinics take care credit these days. I don't know how close you are to Plano, but this place seems great- http://eahcc.com/. You could also try calling your family veterinarian, and see if their voicemail has any after hours ER clinics mentioned. Or, you could see if they have a website with links to reputable emergency clinics. Good luck to you and your cat! - Dr. C
