Taz's Serious Stone Situation

Urinary blockages are a very serious medical emergency that can be fatal if left untreated. Our friend Taz found himself in this serious predicament when he was brought to the Fairfax County Animal Shelter totally blocked. The only option to relieve Taz of this blockage was to perform surgery to remove the urinary stones.
Friends funded Taz’s surgery to unblock his urinary track and remove the stones causing his condition. Because cat urine is highly acidic, it predisposes them to getting urinary stones due to the build up of minerals, froming stones over time. While Taz will need to be on a special urinary diet for the rest of his life, it is a small changes to make to prevent this from happening again. Taz found just the right place to call home after his recovery.
