Well, what can I say? The battle of the PeeWars continues, so I thought I would tell you why I am thankful today. I know, I know, thankful and PeeWars really shouldn’t be in the same sentence, but it works because it’s a bit of an update. Of course I could say it is a wee bit of an update MOL!.
Anywho, last time I was at the Emergecy Clinic the nice Dr Elliott thought that I had FLUTD, specifically idiopathic cystitis. All that basically means is they have ruled most everything else out and what I have falls in the “who knows” category. Dr, Elliott suggested a course of action and with the help of my regular Vet, the wonderful Dr. Anderson, we got some meds.
It is really kind of simple, I think I have to pee due to a pretty constant inflamation in my urinary tract. I need meds with anti-inflamatory properties. So, once the PeeWars start Dad is to give me 1/2 prednisone for three days, then 1/2 prednisone every other day for 3 days, then done. Repeat as necessary. I am also a low dose of amitriptyline. Both of these have anti-inflamatory properties. Plus I am taking a uretha relaxer and pain meds on a regular basis.
So, how did it work out? It may be too early to draw a conclusion. However, the PeeWars tried to start on two different occasions and Dad followed the suggested course of action and within two hours the PeeWars stopped.
I am thankful for the two wins so far and I am super thankful for the wisdom of the wonderful Vets who are trying to help me. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
Paws crossed for you, Brian! I hope this treatment continues to work for you!
This sounds promising so far, Brian. We will keep purring and praying for you, buddy!
We are purring like crazy here too
Oh Brian, that is such good news. That Pred is great stuff and it mixed with other meds sounds like it might work for you. We will sure keep our paws crossed for you. You all have a great day.
YAY for proactive and awfully SMART vets! So happy to hear it! I am on a course of Pred now myself because of my allergies 🙁 Love, Cody
We sure hope this course of actions does the trick for you, Brian. Continued purrs!
That is great news! We hope that this course of treatment continues to be a success! Sending purrs, prayers, and love!
We hope this treatment will cure your problems Brian.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Poor Brian. I am sorry you have to suffer at all, but I am glad you have a great battle plan.
We hope that this keeps you feeling good!
2 hours beats lasting a whole week. Hopefully it keeps helping.
Brian, I hope so much that your vets found the perfect weapon to win the pee-war… maybe it may be too early to celebrate… but I think that’s a super news and deserved a silent YAY!!!
That is very good news that the pee wars got nipped in the bud Brian.

Super duper paws crossed this keeps you out of the pee war zone
Mes hates when the pee wars starts! Mes gets anxious and the battle gets worse. Your docs is pretty smart!
So glad the vets found some ammunition to aid you in your Pee Wars battle. Good luck, we know you are going to lick that nasty inflammation.
We are so glad to hear that you are making some progress, Brian! We hope it continues….we have found prednisone can really be a miracle drug of sorts and treats a lot of different things.
Thank goodness for wise vets! Let’s hope this really does the job!! Sending continued megapurrs for you, Brian xxx
Glad it is helping. Have a great day!
Brian that sounds like a win win win for you. WE are so glad you are feeling better.

Dezi and Lexi
Keep at it, Brian. We’re rooting for you to win the battle of the pee wars.
Crossing our paws for you Brian. May this be the help you need to stop the pee wars.
Brian, you know if your humans have trouble getting you to take the Prednisolone, they make it in yummy flavors! Mes gets chicken liver flavored pills that melt in my mouth every day. The Mom can send along the info for our compounding pharmacy (it’s on the east coast) if your humans are interested. We hope the meds continue to help!
Brian you and your dad are the best PeeWar Warriors we know….
yay for the Vets and for your Dad being so observant as to nip other episodes in the bud!!
Hugs madi your bfff
sounds like a plan…..we send purrs it continues to work for your
Wish they could find a more permanent solution for you, but it sounds better than what you had before.
Brian, thank GOODNESS there is something working! It just kills mom and me when you are feeling so bad!
Oh querido essa é uma boa notícia, eu sei como é difícil essa guerra xixi.
You do crack us up with your wit, Brian:) Isn’t it wonderful when you find a vet who has a novel idea that really seems to work? That is what we had for the past couple of years with wonderful Dr. B. We hope he sticks around with our vet clinic for a long time.

Prednisone worked miracles with Nylablue…the only drawback is that it can cause Diabetes… so I am praying that never happens to you Brian.
I am glad you are on the ‘Ami’…Dr Dave would not use that on Nylablue…only Mirtazipine (but that was for appetite).
We are ‘purrayin’ as Siddhartha Henry says for you to feel better soon.
If your Dad or Mum need anything they can email me ok??? I am here for all of you.
((hugs)) Sherri-Ellen & Siddhartha Henry =^,.^=
Brian, we are thankful you are getting some relief and the docs have figured out a way to help you if not completely solve your darn pee wars 🙂 purrs,
Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, Hollie
Hope they found a combination that gets you feeling better!
Brian, hope this does the trick for good.
We all have everything crossed here this new treatment works and stays working!
It sounds like you have a really good vet, Brian. We hope this course of treatment continues to work for you.
Thanks fer the “wee bit of an update”, and we are glad fer the 2 wins so far. Gee “whiz”… MOL!
May peace be among you forever.
keeping my paws crossed for you Pal,xx Speedy
Brian, I hope you’re not gonna need one of those sex change operations to shorten your uretha. OMG! I’m glad the new meds are working for you. I’ll keep my paws (and eyes) crossed for you.
I’m so glad the vet is proactive and thinking outside the box (litter box, that is).
That’s a lot of vigilant loving care, Brian, but I know your people are up to the task!

Brian, that sounds like lots of meds but if the treatment is working…YIPPEE! Giulietta is on a low dose of amitriptyline and though it has taken about three months, it really seems to be helping her. No peeing on the floor at all in the last couple of weeks. Good luck with the treatment protocol. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
We are rooting for you Brian and have our paws crossed that the new treatment will continue to work for you.
