They actually put a cathetar in and said his bladder tone was reduced (nerves) so he could not empty his bladder himself at the moment. THIS WAS A NEW DEVELOPMENT he had had no trouble urinating up to this point.
.his bladder was not full yesterday but today since his drinking has now improved it is fullish..I need to express urgently..but I think he is holding himself against my efforts

So my question is WHY DID THE URINE NOT IMMEDIATELY FLOW OUT OF THE FULLISH BLADDER BY ITS OWN ACCORD, under its own pressure?
The cat is still in the process of eliminating his constipation so is this blocking the exit from the bladder? was this the reason for having to draw out the urine?

Normally following anesthetic vet/doctors, according to medical papers they are careful to provide a specific boost to keep the choline levles up..to prevent loss of bladder function..its what the medical profession do.
Is expressing safe, I don't think he had a blockage, anyway its been flushed!)
