    FIC - Prazosin is it safe for cats?

    ...wait 5 days. Even if he is peeing only tiny drops or a trickle, it is an emergency. Did your vet offer to give you a prescription for Prazosin? I used it once with Graycie, who was dxed with FIC at the time, and had no problems. That is not to say that someone else might not have problems...

    FIC - Prazosin is it safe for cats?

    ...difficult to treat and even harder to prevent. I don’t think your vet is acting improperly or conspiring to take your money. Gabapentin and Prazosin are the standard treatments during an episode. The first one treats pain and stress and the other relaxes the bladder. My vet instructed me to...

    Male cat not able to pee. Help

    Diazepam is along the same lines as prazosin. Should produce similar results, including side effects like drowsiness and so forth.

    Did you figure out the name of the medication to relax his bladder? Was it prazosin? Prazosin can cause dizziness and even fainting, also nausea and vomiting are common too. However, it is more impotant to relax the bladder. Because of the vomiting, he may have electrolye imbalance. If all else...

    Male cat not able to pee. Help

    If it were to be prazosin, that could help with getting him to relax his urethra/bladder, even if it means relaxing all the rest of him too.

    Urinary tract blocked for the second time in two weeks

    The emergency vet unblocked him 2 weeks ago and sent him home with Prazosin and Gapapentin. I saw someone make a negative comment about Prazosin somewhere and asked about it as a precautionary measure. My guy is coming home today, and his urethra (?) is wider, however he's not sure whether his...

    Gabapentin for bladder issues?

    She peed about 2.5 hours after getting the gabapentin. The gabapentin was give as needed basis. Not the antibiotics. And yes she had had 2 doses of each. No the prazosin is given to relax the urethra so they can pee. It was a life save years ago when one of my other cats couldn't pee.

    Urinary tract blocked for the second time in two weeks

    Prazosin is a bladder relaxer which I have used in a female cat with FIC, but not with a bladder obstruction. I was very happy with it and a compounded chicken flavored formula was amazingly easy to administer, but I don't see it being curative in the case of an emergency. What is going on now?

    Cat peeing blood

    ...leaking blood, constantly trying to urinate, ect. But they said since he's passing urine that he will be okay till the morning. I know the leaking part is "normal" from the prazosin/ catheter removal and the blood could be from damage from the catheter/ him passing more crystals and inflammation.

    Urinary tract blocked for the second time in two weeks

    I was very happy with Prazosin, but that is only my opinion and certainly there can be reactions to medications. It is a blood vessel relaxant, not exactly a urinary tract medication, and the side effects have to do with low blood pressure like weakness or dizziness. It can cause gastro side...
