    If you want an honest opinion, I think you need to find another vet. Or, if this infection has occured since he's seen the vet, you need to go back. Neutering, when it's done right, should not cause fluid to accumulate in his stomach. When a doctor does a drainage incision, there should be a small tube there, and the cat should have to wear an "e" collar to keep him from aggravating the issues. If the infection is so bad, he absolutely needs to have blood tests and be on an antibiotic. I can only tell you what I'd do, but your kitty has a lot of issues going on with him and you need to have an honest discussion with your vet about treatments for those issues. Good luck! We hope he's healthy and happy soon, too!

    A single-source protein diet saved one of my cat's lives when the 2500.00 vet bill for his bleeding bowels yielded no answers. California Naturals has a few great options my cats love, and there are other makers out there too. Angstrom Minerals's Silver Water- 600 ppm- is what I use for my 12 cats, 3 dogs, and myself to take care of everything from cuts to stomach aches to giardia. It's the oldest, safest, and most inexpensive anti-bacterial and anti-microbial product on the market. You can put it in his food, fur, and water with no ill effects, and his problems will clear up. 1 TBSP per gallon of water, and for sick cats I rub some in their fur and give 1 tsp orally 2x per day. I can't say enough about how well this works! Cold-pressed coconut oil is a great anti-microbial product as well. Keeps their fur and digestive system healthy, and it smells great too!
