Boarding my cat: cat hotel or vet?
Well, my previous question is moot now. Basil spent the night at the emergency vet because he has blood in his urine. His ultrasound showed a bunch of debris in his bladder, and his urinalysis revealed a lot of crystals.
Even though the normal vet I saw today reassured me that it’s not hugely serious and will most likely self-correct in 5–7 days, there is a risk of obstruction (and a little part of me feels like this vet wasn’t as worried because he hadn’t seen the ultrasound).
I’m scheduled to go home tomorrow. Normally I’d cancel my upcoming trip. However, I haven’t been home for Christmas in 2 years and my dad has a major surgery coming up in January, so it’s important to me to see him.
None of my close SF friends have pets (and I don’t really want to ask a bunch of them to do rounds a few times a day), I’ve decided to board him for my piece of mind.
SO: Which would be best for my boy? A cat hotel (where’d they give him all the medication and food I’ve just bought), or boarding him at the vet?
