My cat was born 6/11/11 is a black male short hair had surgery on 3/12/18 for cancer on his right rear leg which was cut off.
They kept him at the hospital till 3/14/18, then we picked him up that day, he has eaten and drank lots of water, pooped a little bit but has not urinated as of yet. He has gotten up tried to walk eat and drink then goes back to rest in his cat bed.
He does not appear to be in any pain but I can't get him to urinate I don't want him to have some type of blockage and cause other problems for him. I can't get in touch with our Vet so I need to know what if anything more I need to do and observe while I'm waiting for him to go.

He has urinated but still hasn't pooped but he is doing fine. The thing is where they amputated his leg where they stitched it and its leaking a green smelly fluid is that normal?

No, this does not sound normal.

How long has it been since he urinated?

Can you share pictures of what you're seeing?

I will use your service again. I was very pleased with the response and the fact that you have a low cost option so that those of us on fixed income can have questions answered. I will also recommend you to others.

KarenJackson Heights, NY

You helped us to come to what we believe is a better next step in Jack's treatment, and hopefully have saved us $800!! Thanks again!

Jack's MomTuscon, AZ

The vet said that the information and my following it will be what made the difference. Thanks again for being so very helpful.

TracyGrayson, LA

My oldest male cat had a seizure this evening. This site was the first place I could think of to go after the seizure had passed. Dr. Lucy was fantastic and she was spot on!

DebbieUSA

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Alice H.Jacksonville, Fl.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
