My cat fell from our 4th floor balcony. We brought her to the vet and did xrays and was given meds. But the problem is he can’t poop. We are giving him lactulose to help but still he couldnt poop. I am worried sick. I’m afraid he would be intoxicated. Vet is too from our place and costs too much. Also, our vet told me if this continues we have no choice but put him down. This breaks my heart badly. Help me please!

Hi-
I’m sorry about your cat. Your vet is aware that your cat is not going to the bathroom? Did they advise anything else over the phone to you? Has your cat eaten? Is he trying to use the litter box, or just hasn’t yet? I would give it a little more time, unless you are seeing otherwise (straining your go, pain, etc.) I would also phone the vet and ask what feeding they would recommend to help the situation. Hope things work out!!

Hello,
I worry about pelvic fractures causing feces to not be able to leave the abdomen or loss of nerve function. But pooping is vital. Please go back to the vet. I would ask them to confirm anal tone and do an X-ray and rectal exam. I hope things heal. But you can not wait! If they don’t defecate for a few days it can be really difficult to treat.

Is there anyway that you could explain to your vet that you are willing to try options? Or is there another vet that you could possibly go to?
