Not sure whether I’m just panicking and have lost perspective or am I right to be upset and annoyed? Kito is constipated. Badly. I think (or thought) he went yesterday morning but could be wrong - that might have been Mosi. He is raw fed so doesn’t always go every day. However, since yesterday he’s been going to the tray and straining big time but producing nothing except a bit of diarrhoea (constipation diarrhoea I think if you know what I mean). He’s definitely trying to poo and not wee - I can see his muscles desperately trying to do something but nothing much comes out. Yesterday he ate and was ok ish in himself. Not as lively as normal but he was able to jump onto the kitchen counters etc. I thought I’d see how he was today. This morning he ate but he’s so not himself. He’s way quieter and although he’s moving around a bit he meows now and again or cries and is clearly in discomfort. He refused a small snack at lunchtime and this afternoon he vomited. Projectile vomiting. Semi digested food (breakfast no doubt). Anyway, enough is enough so I rang the vet to explain and ask whether they can fit him in. They can’t see him until tomorrow. Frankly I’m worried that is too long to wait. I’m worried in case he has some sort of obstruction. Not seen him pee but have scooped a few and he’s definitely not trying to pee. They are happy for me ring the out of hours later on and pay a lot of money to travel to vets now several miles away (am I being cynical?). I’ve tried to ring another vet that they were both registered with a couple of years ago as they stayed in the attached cattery (which required them to be registered with the vets) but they have told me they can’t see anyone registered with another vet and anyway couldnt’ see me before tomorrow. Should this be treated as an emergency? I think I’m a bit annoyed because I’ve been at the vets a lot lately with Mosi and I’ve waited ages on more than one occasion because of an emergency. What do you think? Kito has just jumped down from the sofa but he is hunched and looking so uncomfortable.
