Hi Everyone, our family cat Valentine is a healthy bouncing loving energetic kitty, he chirps like a bird and is my son's sleeping buddy. My older son gave him to me for Valentines Day. On Friday he became ill vomiting all day and night and took him to the vet that night for IV fluids because they didn't think it looked serious they went ahead and sent him home with fluids and a shot of Naseau meds. we took him back Saturday morning as planned for a check-up and they did not feel anything in his stomach we at that point just figured that he maybe got into a plant or something he wasn't supposed to that upset his stomach so they send home with nausea pills. his stomach exam wasn't having any pain or anything like that so at that point we just planned to have them recheck Tuesday if he was still throwing up. Sunday was Mother's Day when I got back from my Mother's Day fishing he had been sleeping on the couch. The next morning he was still sleeping and however he was limp, lethargic, cold to the touch and can barely walk. wasn't eating or drinking was dehydrated. took him to the vet at 10:30 am and they run blood work and let him go home with some IV fluids so there was nothing we could do until we got the blood work back. about 5:30 p.m. got a call from the vet on the blood work came in at looks like his kidney functions were failing and some other lab tests were off so his staff had already gone home for the day and he suggested we take him to the ER vet as he wouldn't make it through the night, as well he needed an ultrasound and they didn't have options to do that at the vet. Called around to lots of ER vets most of them can't do an ultrasound right then and there I had to take him to Wheat Ridge Animal Hospital in Wheat Ridge Colorado. News is what they did see as he looks to have a blockage in his stomach that has already passed most someone through to the intestine and he might only be in kidney failure because of that. last night's on May 19th at have emergency surgery at 1:30 in the morning he was done they said they did pull something out of his stomach and I are going to be recheck in his kidney functions again this morning. Any help you can give evem if it is $5 here in there will help to pay back all of the money that we are having to spend he has had 3 regular vet visits in 3 days plus an ER vet visit ..ultrasound..blood work and ect... he has to stay for two days at least and I'm still waiting to find out if there's anything else that needs to be done right now. Please help
