ask a vet

Can't urinate after neuter.

Species: Cat
Breed: tom cat
Age: 2-5 years
My boy cat was castrated yesterday he has been trying to wee but there is no wee coming out when he goes is this normal




Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

This is definitely not normal! I can't say that I have ever seen this as a complication of neutering though.

Any time a cat is struggling to urinate, I consider it a medical emergency. The biggest concern is if he has a urinary tract blockage.

I would definitely have your vet see him immediately.

I hope everything is ok!
