Oh the time my male cat spent 5 days in hospital with a urinary blockage and they said right - it’s $$$urgery time. I asked to look at his chart and wondered aloud why they hadn’t given him the sedative, fluids, anti inflammatory, urethral relaxant and painkillers* in a time frame where they might all work together to get the job done… doctor pursed her lip and looked at the chart… cat peed away all his problems a couple hours after receiving the right combination…
I am not a vet. It was just a good common sense guess.
Sometimes you need to walk away and think things through. Best of luck with your pup!
- just found the complete list of drugs he had: ketamine, xanax, diazepam, buprenorphine, clavamox, acepromazine, prazosin, midazolam, butorphanol, ampicillin/sulbactam, propofol, metacam oh, and methadone.
