How long is Ki like this?

Was he scripted an antibiotic and given subQ fluids?

When did he see a vet?

What does he usually eat?

Hi Jeff,

I do not want to alarm you but I am very concerned about your boy.These are very serious and can even be life threatening symptoms Any time a cat use his box and stops eating, he is either sick or in pain.

You should take Ki back to the vet ASAP. - I think he has a urinary tract infection and is in danger of becoming blocked.

UTI's are serious in males because they are caused by sticky crystals in the bladder.At any time they can block the urethra.Since this is going on a while your boy is in great danger.Cats are very stoic animals so he may not cry out.

If he becomes unable to urinate that is a MEDICAL EMERGENCY . His bladder could burst and he would have to be catheterized to save his life.He needs subQ fluids and antibiotics. He must be hospitalized until he can urinate freely and starts eating.

Please let me know how he is doing .
