Orange Boy home

They had to attach the catheter again as OB was not peeing. He doesn’t like to be caged… but no choice as urine is constantly dripping from the catheter. I let him out for a short while and he went straight to the (well-used) scratching post. The vet says he needs to be on prescription diet for at least 6 months to change the pH. Luckily he likes the dry version.

Hospitalised until Tuesday

Dr. G informed me that they couldn’t do the stitching today as the skin was too tight… Dr. Choi will stitch him up on Tuesday and Darly needs to be hospitalised until then… but they will still cap the bill for the final stitching at $400.-

On vet’s request LK made some jackets for the hospital. I think Darly is now the first one using it. Lk has made some improvements to her design.

Darly hospitalized again

The 3 wounds had been shrinking a but there are problems with the stitched parts. Darly bit the stitches on the upper part of his body… before I made him wear the E-collar. The stitches on the lower part have become infected, probably because of his licking as that part was not covered by bandage. The vet is going to open it up again… sigh!

Tomorrow I will be going to Mt Pleasant and to Jireh Vet again… hoping that Darly and Orange Boy or at least one of them can be discharged.

OB had to be transferred to Jireh Vets

Dr Kong called me this morning, the catheter came out and he was unable to insert it again… advised to transfer OB to Jireh for surgery.

Dr Tham explained that there was an abnormal narrow part in OB’s urinary tract making it difficult to insert the regular catheter. He had to use a special Teflon-coated catheter. Also the tip of his penis was necrotic and had to be removed. X-ray showed no stones and blood test was normal… probably the stones had already been passed out earlier. OB will have to be hospitalised for at least 3 days.
