Customer Question
Hi! I have a...

Hi! I have a two year old male cat, not neutered yet, for the past few days he's been moody and growling a lot wondering why until we found out last night that his penis is all swollen up and bleeds a bit when he starts growling, it's really starting to worry us

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the 2 year old?

He's always been healthy before, I even still have his medical card thingy that has his birth date and everything he received till now

Cat Veterinarian: Rebecca, Cat Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

I am sorry to hear about your cat's discomfort. Is he urinating; can he pass urine out of his penis?

We do see a problem in male cats where they get a blockage in the penis, and can't urinate.

Cat Veterinarian: Rebecca, Cat Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

If he is urinating and eating, and otherwise normal, he may have an injury to his penis. Anti inflammatory medication might help, but the most effective and safe anti inflammatory medication in cats is by prescription from your veterinarian. It may be an infection, and he may need antibiotics.

He has gone to the litter box a few minutes ago, there's barely a few drops, and it shows that he was forcing a lot.
Cat Veterinarian: Rebecca, Cat Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

Then I am very concerned he has a blockage, and this is an emergency if it is. He needs to be catheterized (which means sedation) to remove the blockage.

Cat Veterinarian: Rebecca, Cat Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

If the blockage is not removed, he will go into kidney failure, and die. He needs to get to a veterinarian as soon as possible.
