1033. Follow up: Faecal impaction of the cat

June 19, 2012

Yesterday, X-rays were done. A 70-ml normal saline enema via the whole dog's cathether was gently squirted into the colon. When blocked, squirted saline and push catheter in.  So, the whole length of the catheter was passed in. An enema and oil laxative was given. Today, the owner phoned Dr Daniel to say one very hard stool had been passed by the cat this morning.

"Should feed canned food," I advised. The cat would eat only dry food. The cat ate a bit and vomited the oil. Wait and see.
