How Much Does It Cost To Treat A Cat With Urinary Blockage


You didn’t think your sweet, innocent-looking cat could ever get into trouble did you? Unfortunately, that’s exactly what happened to my cat, Digby. It was a normal day for us: I left for work and he went about his usual routine of sleeping. When I came home from work, though, I found him lying on the floor in pain and listless. He couldn’t even meow to let me know what was wrong. After rushing him to the vet under emergency circumstances, it turned out he’d been suffering from a urinary blockage. Treatment was expensive (and continues to be), but nowadays he’s back to his old self! Based on my experience with Digby, I want to share what this condition is like and how much it can cost so you can be prepared if you ever face it with your own feline friend as well.

It’s important to know the signs of a urinary blockage.

It’s important to know the signs of a urinary blockage. These include straining to urinate, blood in the urine, crying in pain and vomiting. Urinary blockage can occur in both male and female cats.

Treatment for a cat with urinary blockage is expensive.

If you have a cat with urinary blockage, you’ll need to get it treated as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the more damage can be done to your cat’s body—and that means it will cost you more in the long run.

Depending on how much time has passed and what kind of complications are involved (such as kidney failure), surgery could cost anywhere from several hundred dollars up to a couple thousand dollars. The dose of medication might be expensive too, since most veterinarians do not give them away for free unless they’re under contract with an insurance company or government agency.

The ER visit alone could cost hundreds of dollars in addition to whatever the technician charges for any injections or medications given at the time of admission; but even if your cat is lucky enough not to need emergency care right away, follow-up visits may be necessary over time depending on how quickly they recover from their illness/surgery—and those can cost even more money down the line! In fact, some vets recommend recurring postoperative checkups throughout recovery period just so there’s no chance whatsoever that any problems will go unnoticed until something major happens later on down road.*(see below)

Treatment usually involves surgery.

Treatment of a urinary blockage will usually involve surgery. In most cases, this is the best option for both you and your pet. While it can be done under general anaesthetic, many vets prefer to perform this procedure in a specialist surgery.

Surgery can also be done in a hospital or day surgery centre if necessary.

The treatment options cost between $1,000 and $5,000.

The cost of treating urinary blockage in cats can vary depending on the severity of the blockage and the cat’s age, health and location. In general, it will cost between $1,000 and $5,000 to treat your cat’s urinary blockage. If you live in a rural area, the surgery may be more expensive than if you live in an urban area.

The location of your vet can also have an impact on how much it costs to treat your cat with a urinary blockage. For example, if you live in Ohio where there are fewer vets per capita than other parts of the country and need emergency care for your sick pet at night or during weekends (when most vets are closed), then it’ll be more expensive because emergency clinics always charge higher rates than non-emergency clinics where people can get appointments during normal business hours or when they’re open on weekends.

Cats who suffer from recurrent blockage may need to go on medication for the rest of their lives to prevent further blockages from occurring.

You can also opt to give your cat medication for the rest of their lives, if they suffer from recurrent blockage. This will cost you $50-$100 a month, but it’s definitely worth it if it means keeping your cat safe and healthy.

This can cost $50-$100 a month.

While the cost of treating a cat with urinary blockage can vary from patient to patient, it’s important to note that most treatments involve long-term medication.

For example, some medications may need to be taken orally once or twice a day for life. Other medications may need to be injected directly into the bladder once or twice a week for several months.

The cost of these ongoing treatments depends on the type of medication used and how often treatment is required (e.g., daily vs. weekly).

Treating a cat with urinary blockage is expensive but it’s worth it to save your loved one’s life..

Sometimes, it’s not worth it. I’m talking about the cost of treating a cat with urinary blockage.

Urinary blockage is an emergency situation that can be deadly for your feline companion so you should always seek veterinary care as soon as possible if your pet has this condition. The cost of treatment varies depending on the severity of the problem but most vets will charge between $200 and $400 per visit; repeat visits may be necessary if symptoms recur or get worse over time. If complications arise—like an infection in your cat’s bladder or kidneys—it could take more visits and additional tests to determine what’s going on with them (and how best to treat it).


Some cat owners may be reluctant to spend $1,000 or more on treating their cat’s urinary blockage. However, if you truly love your pet then it is worth it to pay whatever it takes to help them get better. The healthier your cat is, the happier they’ll be and the longer they’ll live with you. That’s more time for you two spend together which makes it worth every penny!
