Dipper C. is a 3 year old domestic shorthair cat. Dipper was brought to the hospital due to the inability to urinate. Meadow Branch Animal Hospital staff quickly sedated, placed a urinary catheter, and sterile saline was used to flush out his bladder. After the procedure, Dipper was kept in the hospital for a few hours to be monitored and given fluids. The owner notes that Dipper is back to his joyful, lively self a few weeks later. Owner also mentioned Dipper has had regular bowel movements.
