I have a 4 1/2 month old wether and he can't pee and when he tries only drops come out and he cries! I have a vet coming soon but I was wondering if there is anything I can do for now?

Some believe Apple Cider Vinegar can give short term relief....Do not give him water right now..the liquid will only fill his bladder..keep him calm..if you have any banamine..give him some,...glad the vet is on his way..

if you have Ammonium Cloride mix 2 Tablespoons with some water and drench him.

If the vet can make him extend you will want to see if there is a stone lodged at the end - if so that tiny little part can be cut off to allow the stones to pass more easily.

Banamine will help with pain and inflammation.

Wow , that is scary , prayers for a full recovery !
Im so frightened of that happening . To anybody else this would sound foolish , but I watch the bucks pee as many times as I can catch them.
Just to make sure things are moving along normally.
Glad you caught it and treated quickly !
Poor guy :(
