Fozzie treated for urinary tract infection
Fozzie came to our clinic as an abandoned stray kitten with his brother. They were estimated to be about two weeks old and still quite helpless. Katherine, one of our vet nurses, took them both home to care for them including bottle feeding them every three hours as they were still not able to digest solids. After a few days Katherine's parents took over the care of the kittens, promptly fell in love with their antics and decided to adopt them!
Since this hiccup Fozzie has been growing well and loves a good rough and tumble with his brother. He came in mid April for his desexing operation and a final urine check. A cystocentesis was performed (where a sterile urine sample is collected directly from his bladder). Fozzie was a very brave patient and rewarded with an all clear!
Two lessons were learned:
- Good things happen to even the most innocent patients and most loving owners
- Pet insurance is a beautiful thing!
