My dog has a bladder stone obstructing her getting urine

Customer Question

Hello. My dog has a bladder stone obstructing her getting urine out. The nearest 24/7 vet clinic is 4 hours away. She's scheduled for surgery Thursday to remove the stones and has an appointment Monday to be catheterized. Can she wait that long without dire consequences?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Taffy
JA: Is there anything else the veterinarian should be aware of about Taffy?
Customer: She has seizures and is currently on Baytril.

Hi, I'm Dr. Jill. I'd be happy to help. Is your dog able to still pass normal amounts of urine?

Also, how is her appetite?
