That morning we picked up our cat at the Animal Hospital and took him to the Veterinary Clinic. This is the bill for the clinic from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM.

More Bills To Go

If untreated FLUTD is fatal in male cats between 24 and 36 hours. Essentially you have three choices pay up front to catheterize the cat with no assurance that you won't end up needing to catheterize again, euthanasias the cat, or take the cat home to die a painful death.

If you don't have the money or the credit your cat dies. If you have the money, and the credit veterinarians can pretty much charge whatever they want. If you stop paying at any point your cat dies - it's that simple.

Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disorder is a real money maker for Veterinarians. It's a life or death condition for male cats. Companies which produce popular brands of cat food still include too much phosphorus, and magnesium in their formulas.
Despite switching to a prescription only cat food our cat's urethra was so badly scarred from being catheterized twice in November of 2006 that he still ended up being blocked again by March of 2007, and needed surgery to prevent further episodes of FLUTD by having his penis amputated.
