Hi, I am an experienced veterinarian and happy to help!

Before we start please note:

We are testing a new rating system. If you have any problem with it please let me know.

This is meant to be a continuous chat, and for this reason it is very IMPORTANT that you reply using the REPLY TO EXPERT button, BEFORE rating, if more information is needed at any time.

Veterinarian101 :

Passing pee is more of concern than poo.

Veterinarian101 :

Is he passing any pee at all?

Customer :

No

Veterinarian101 :

So not even small bits with straining?

Customer :

No

Veterinarian101 :

And it has been 24 hours since the last pee is that correct?

Customer :

At least. not sure there are 2 others cats here. But I noticed today he was straining and nothing.

Veterinarian101 :

Ok.

Veterinarian101 :

The biggest concern is that his bladder will be reasonably full after 24 hours of no peeing.

Veterinarian101 :

He has had one vomit is that correct?

Customer :

Yes

Veterinarian101 :

Ok. The vomit indicates that he probably has some toxic products building up in his blood stream because of not urinating.

Veterinarian101 :

I think you need to get him to a vet now - sorry

Customer :

Thank you

Veterinarian101 :

If you leave him the toxic products can build up further and affect the brain and also the bladder can burst.

Veterinarian101 :

Best wishes.

Veterinarian101 :

Can I help any further tonight?

Customer :

So tonight not in the morning

Veterinarian101 :

Yes - NOW please

Customer :

Thank you.

Veterinarian101 :

My pleasure.
