The specialist was Dr. Robert Roy Graduate From Auburn University and owns Pam Beach Trauma and referral facility I am a vet tech but have never encountered this, His bladder is normal and good stream for two weeks or three then seems like after dinner usually he has the most diffucility every two to three weeks so I buy 8 French red rubber and pass cathether no difficulty at all no blockage, there was no evidence of any issues with abcess or problems at time of neuter. One I remove the HOT urine and flush with saline he is fine again with great strem for 2 - 3 weeks would x-ray or mri benefit better and I this just adjustment to neuter 6 months ago do you think
Sorry to keep bothering you but one last question, It is impossible to express manually not even the veterinarians can, I do use the flexible red rubber and it is always new and sterile, and I do wear gloves to avoid any contamination as well as lubricate well, Sometimes I only get it in inches and my dog is huge 110 lbs so prior red rubber would not work , Urine flows thru the cathether and around. I do use a smaller catheter but he also had intesaseption sx when he was 16 weeks old and lost 1/4 of sm intestines as well as illium and his neuter was 2001.00 The cost to me is nothing compared to finding a way to helping him. Every anti inflammatory herbal and bladder herbal I have tried but when I do empty I can palpate a golf ball thicking whether that is the bladder wall or what I am unsure but he developed the prostate issue over a period of two years and previous vet was not on the ball unfortunately. I will speak to dr Roy and Have capability to have ultrasound just seems so odd that once I empty and flush hes great for weeks. any extra thoughts are always appreciated.
Tank you your great wish you were in Florida but its ironic Dr. Roy places pace makers and total hips etc. but OMG says here Joy 20.00
You can pass the catheter as well or better than my techs now, and when I had him neutered I had to hold for catheter to be paced and then I placed trach tube and tied in and hooked up This dog wont be led away from me last xrays I placed on table and said stay VD position He stayed perfectly He is my boy for sure I do so much appreciate the help and see about looking into the medication. Do you recommend any particular food He get Iams Healthy Natural 2 cups daily and 1/2 pound ground cooked turkey. plus some scraps of chicken bathed in nolvasen shampoo and groomed twice daily goes shopping daily bowel movements normal etc playful and he goes everywhere with me currecnt on shots heartworm and frontline andy suggestions that would be more beneficial Thank you for all you help realy you have been fantastic
still doing ok with urine, has had normal strem, for last few days, I watch him like a hawk and even can tell you when hes normal he drinks either 42 -n 44 sips of h2o or if really thirsty after exercise its 82 - 84. Hes had 10 mg pred but impossible to manually express bladder, did pass urinary cath night after we spoke and another 800 cc then sterile saline flush so normal since then and happy healthly boy. Thank you for the wonderful answers and followups and I am definitely making him appointment for x-ray then mri after . Thank you again
