My cat was blocked Wednesday, the vet had a hard time getting catheter in. The unblocked him. Sent him home with pain meds and proposing.

He didn’t go to the bathroom at all that night
I took him back Thursday morning, they drained his bladder again . He had alot of bloodclots.

They told me next option was to hospitalize him.

But sent him home with a sedative to keep him relaxed and hopefully he can pee..
Mufasa has been drinking water. It looks like he has pass dribbles of pee in the litter box.

My question is if they had a hard time getting the catheter in the first time, will another place be able to get one in and keep him monitored?

Going on the third day and I am so worried keeping him sedated and not knowing if he is actually blocking back up

I would call your vet. I would think (I am not a vet though) they would want to keep him and monitor him closely since he posed such difficulty in the first place… especially after the second visit.

Hello,
I’m not sure what options were given to you at the first vet visit but in every cat blocked case I see I recommend placing a urinary catheter and hospitalization for three days (at least) to flush the bladder and debris that caused the blockage. Placing and then replacing a catheter just adds trauma to an already traumatized urinary system. This is what I recommend now.
