Tom went to ER Vets yesterday. nice lady vet said at the moment tom was Not bladder blocked,so after xrays the found no stones,that was good news. as for his bleeding it potencially could be one of two things
1. he is heading into being blocked and that would have a sad ending, because of Toms age no treatments at that time would be made and we would hold his paw to the Bridge,
2,he could have Bladder cancer, this was hard to tell on the count of the palp test on his bladder was hard to determine if he has lumps or masses cuz he is a BIG boywith lots of fat on him.
h is 19 yrs. old and weighs 19 lbs.
so if its cancer taht is not a positive out come either,
thats the bad news
the good news is Tom could respond to the clavamox and othepee inducing drugs they have started him on. if so he possibly will get better. so for now we hold on to this little ray of light.
he is on tranquilizers and pain meds so for the most part he is just sleeping.but he finally ate this morning and is finally drinking.
thanks for all you suggestions and love and concern

Sorry to bother everyone with sad news of Tomcat .as you all know he's is very ole and well we are afraid his kidneys are going. you see tom cat has been in pain last few days not eatting or drinking. that odd for him. then noticed he was leaking a horrible foul smelling fluid from his peepee area. now this morning his pee pee area fur is soaked in blood.
i want to bring him to ER vet but we have no ability to pay that.so we have to wait till tomorrow tues. please if you have any idea what is happening to him send me a message.
if you are a vet i sure need some help. i don't want my 19 yr. old baby boy suffering,
Memorial day 2013
plz rt to anyone who might be able to let me know what i can do,
times are hard and now my heart is breaking.
Audrey and Tom Cat
