47674Re: Reduced Urination.
- Apr 7, 2013Hello I was too scared to do sub q because of his heart, so I was syringe feeding him food and water. Although he did then start drinking frequently on his own, but wouldn't eat.
He wasn't overly dehydrated when skin tenting. He always ate dry. But the past few days he had wet k/d.
He may well have been too weak to wee. I can't say. Although the litter boxes are downstairs, I carried him up and down many times throughout the day.
He's at he vets now, staying for up to four days. They can't get IV access because his veins have collapsed :( so they are doing subcutaneous fluids instead.
I'm so worried. He means everything to me.

> Anyone had experience of this? My boys kidney values were slightly off when he had his last bloods. But they were greatly improved after IV (he was dehydrated). Problem is these last few days he's only been urinating twice a day. He isn't well, I'm assisted feeding him. He's drinking on his own, he's very wobbly and on a potassium supplement. Could the supplement have anything to do with it? He's being seen later today. Fingers crossed he doesn't have to stay in again, because each time he does I feel we lose a bit of him.
