Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi this is Dr. Hill. I need to ask a couple of questions to get a better understanding on how to help. Is Patches not able to walk at all? Is Patches eating? When was the last bowel movement?
It can take up to 6 weeks to know how much function Patches may regain. Since she started vomiting yesterday, I would definitely be concerned that she is constipated, but I would also be concerned that she may have developed a urinary tract infection. Because she is paralyzed, her urinary bladder has to be expressed three to four times each day to keep it from pooling urine and allowing an infection. Have you been expressing her bladder? How much has she been vomiting?
Because she is paralyzed, it is critical that her bladder be expressed multiple times each day. I would take her into your local veterinarian tomorrow so that they can check her for obstipation (inability to defecate) and a urinary tract infection. They will also need to show you how to express her bladder in order to give her time to regain function.
