Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
It sounds like Hydro has Capillaria, which commonly occur after exposure to earthworms. This may have been something he picked up when he was outdoors prior to being blocked. Treatment is often achieved with either ivermectin or fenbendazole. It would be wise to involve your vet in treatment as there's no way you'll be sure he's rid of the parasite without a urinary evaluation and may require multiple treatments to be successful.
