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.
What is Prazosin and why was it prescribed for my cat?

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
