Kitten has "malformed urinary tract"?

November 29th, 2005, 01:45 PM
Today I took our 10wk old kitten to get neutered, but the vet did not perform the surgery as he discovered our kitten has a "malformed urinary tract". He said he would have to refer us to a surgeon, and also recommended we take our kitten back to the breeder. We are going to speak with a surgeon to discuss options, but my vet said he would have ongoing problems. We, of course, are very attached to our little bengal kitten and are very heartbroken -- we don't want to give up! Has anyone heard of this congenital defect and have any info to share?

Sorry to hear about your kitten. 1st most breeders guareentee the health of thier animals for at least a year. I'm sure u are attatched to your little guy but you may be looking at a lifetime of health problems(15-20YrsWorth). Are you prepared to take on a large finacial burden or deal w/a cat that has a lot of health issues. I'm also curious as to why you would be having a kitten nuetured at 10wks? That is WAY TO EARLY. Most vets recomend u wait till 6months. They need the hormone levels to develope properly. How did he discover a malformed urinary tract? did he take an x-ray? I would get a second opinion and hold off on anything till it has all been explained to u in great detail.
