I am hoping that you will find one of the clinics to assist you in the care and treatment of your cat.....if not, please ask them for referral names/numbers to animal activists in your area, that you can contact - as many will band together in order to gather monies to assist those in need.

 When you say your cat has a 'swollen bladder' - are you referring to a bladder or urinary tract infection? I'm assuming this is what you mean, but wanted to be sure!

If your cat cannot urinate, the cause is most likely an obstruction caused by crystal blocking the uretha.  This is a life threatening situation and without medical intervention, your cat can die.  There is not a home treatment available to help your cat.  I wish there was but it's just not the case because you cannot afford to use anything, even if a product claims to 'cure' this problem, there is not time to find out if it will.

Please take Mystic's advise above and find a vet that can help you as soon as possible!

I am so very sorry that you believe I was of no help to you. My sincerest apologies. Please know that there are veterinarians here at this site who can offer you advice. I would keep your question open.

Bright Blessings.

  • You helped us to come to what we believe is a better next step in Jack's treatment, and hopefully have saved us $800!! Thanks again! Jack's Mom Tuscon, AZ
  • The vet said that the information and my following it will be what made the difference. Thanks again for being so very helpful. Tracy Grayson, LA
  • My oldest male cat had a seizure this evening. This site was the first place I could think of to go after the seizure had passed. Dr. Lucy was fantastic and she was spot on! Debbie USA
  • I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there. Alice H. Jacksonville, Fl.
  • Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help. Mary C. Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
