Quick Vet Update

      90 Comments on Quick Vet Update

Okay, here is the scoop. I had my xrays and there are no obvious stones. There is no blockage. There were no immediately detectable crystals but they were able to get a urine sample and we will get the full results tomorrow. I will be headed home shortly. Dad will give me some fluids to ease things for me + my meds.. Please keep those purrs and prayers coming.

Thank you for all of the kind messages and badges too. I appreciate all of you!

    I hope the results are good, Brian. We will be waiting with baited (tuna) breath for more information!

    Wait … if I bait my breath, MomKatt says I can’t purr for you so I’m going to forget the breath thing & just purr. 😉

    Your furriend,

    Brian I bet you were happy to be HOME after the doc visit and let’s hope that UTI thing is easily treatable and that you’re “yourself” again SOON! Get some rest buddy….that does a lot of good especially when you get your meds going.

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

    Glad to hear you’ll be home soon where you and your family will feel much better. Hope you get good news from the tests.

    Thank the gods and the Universe there’s no blockage. That, at least, is good news. Continued purrs and purrayers. We bet you will be SO happy to be home. Fingers crossed for the urine analysis. BTW, there CAN be some in-house contamination in the UAs. Both Annie and Derry supposedly had coccidia in their urine at different points, tested in-house, but when I had a culture and sensitivity test done (pricey, they send a sample out to a lab to grow any bacteria over the course of a few days), there was nothing. So in-house results (any results, presumably) are not necessarily 100% accurate. BTW, a C&S test is the only, absolutely only, way to guarantee whether (a) there’s any bacteria in the urine and (b) what kind–so what kind of antibiotic would be best.

    See the vet-written site, https://www.catinfo.org/ for info on this, on UTIs, blockages, etc.

    Purrs and peace.

    P.S. I’ve had awesome luck with UTI-Free for Derry’s cystitis. Excellent product, extremely well-reviewed. Sold via PetAlive.com, and I’ve seen it on Amazon.com too, probably other sites carry it.

  15. Teri and the cats of Curlz and Swirlz

    We have been keeping track of your pee problems, Brian, cuz our Brighton suffers from FIC (Feline Interstitial Cystitis) although he has been ‘free-flowin’ since his one severe blockage in June 2010. He is on a couple of nutriceuticals and mostly canned food with an Rx dry food as a treat. We also have a water fountain and a Sink Drink to increase his water consumption. If your vet finds no crystals and no bacteria, be sure to ask him about FIC. We hope you are feline fine soon!

  16. Amy

    Thinking of you and sending you lots of purrs and positive thoughts, Brian. Hang in there and feel better soon, Brian. We’ll keep the purrs coming ’til your good and mended.

    Brian, by the time you read this, you’ll be all tucked in and happy to be home! This is good news and the tests you’ve had so far sure are good signs.

    We’re not stopping the purrs and prayers, though..’specially when we’re waiting for the rest of the story, as they say, from the vet which comes tomorrow. Good luck, good buddy.

Its very scary, but we are sure you are in capable and loving hands, and your dad and mom will do anything necessary to help you get better.

  24. carma Poodale

    I am sending you positive poodle powers to heal quickly. I hope they find out what it is and can help to correct the problem. Did they check you for pancreatis? I have a few kitty friends who are suffering from that right now.
    Hang in there friend!

  25. Cats of wildcat woods

    That is good news – hope you feel better soon. Sometimes boy cats get an inflamed urethra from stress and other things but there is no one cause. Maybe this is that. Hope you get good news from the urinalysis.
