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!
