Hello, my name is***** and I would like to assist with your concern. Is Maverick still drinking? Do you feel he is drinking MORE than normal since he was laying near the water bowl?
Oh, poor buddy. Are you able to check his gum color and see if he is pink?
How old is Maverick?
Oh ok, that is good to know. It is going to be difficult to diagnose exactly what is going on with him without doing a physical exam but I'd like to assist however I can otherwise.
I saw you thought he seemed constipated. Is he passing stools that are hard or not passing stool at all?
Offering the wet food is a good idea. Still have dry food available though since that is what he is used to. You can also give laxatone which you can purchase over the counter, to help with constipation.
oh you did take him in? I'm glad you did. I hadn't heard from you for a while so I was worried. Is he at the hospital now?
That's good news. That is correct that having a bladder blockage is an emergency. Typically they are very painful when their belly is touched. I'm surprised he didn't mind being handled earlier.
I'm glad you were able to take him in. Do you have any questions about anything going on with him at this time?
Yes, that sounds reasonable. They will want to be sure he can urinate on his own without getting blocked again before going home.
