May 26, 2015: VETgirl Real-Life Rounds: Feline Urethral Obstruction

VETgirl understands that ivory tower medicine is not available to most, and not necessary for many. We practice real-life medicine. We offer no heroic proclamations, drama, or even a fancy PowerPoint with animation. Practicing real life medicine is tough and we understand that we are all in the trenches together. For VETgirl ELITE members only, we present VETgirl Real-Life Rounds.

Real-Life rounds will be a webcam-based, interactive session where VETgirl ELITE members will have the opportunity to interact with specialists during an informal 20-30 minute session on specific topics.

  1. Working in a referral center we commonly will see previously urethral obstructed cats that have a history of multiple episodes of obstruction and catheterization.
    They typically have severe urethal spasm, inflammation and severe cystitis.
    Many of these cats are referred because a urinary catheter cannot be placed.
    your approach??

    • Aggressive IV fluid to help flush all those inflammatory cells, red blood cells and crystals out of the urinary catheter and bladder; pain control (e.g., buprenorphine), and low dose acepromazine or prazoin to minimize spasming! I can unblock everything – my approach is good sedation and gentle unblocking!
