My cat spent overnight at the Vet clinic for a urinary blockage. When he was released, he was prescribed two medications. Metacam and Prazosin. I have been able to find info on Metacam but nothing for Prazosin. I would really like to know what I am giving this to my cat and why. I know I should have asked my Vet these questions but did not think to at the time.
Hi, Katie! First, it's understandable that *your head wasn't together* when your cat had just undergone a serious medical emergency.
Most of the information you'll find about prazosin is it's use in high blood pressure and/or anxiety disorders. For our feline friends it does a neat thing ~ it relaxes the muscles of the urethra to ensure a full, unrestricted flow of urine.
If you have any further questions about it's use be sure to contact your veterinarian or ask during kitty's follow-up exam.
My best, WildcatVet
