|I have looked back through as many of the urinalyis reports as show up on her e-records.
Her pH values have been:
3/2009 = 6 (wellness exam)
9/2009 = 8 (can't remember why we had this)
6/2010 = 7 (wellness exam)
9/2010 = 7 (accidents, realized ingesting a lot of water playing in wading pool, solved by waking her up to pee an hour after she ate)
11/2010 = 7 (UTI --- unusual urination, vulvar irritation, rash on belly)
12/2010 = 6.5 (recheck, RBCs and trace of blood, cysto collection)
1/3/2010 = 6 (recheck for RBCs, WBCs found, vulvar irritation/inflammation)
1/31/2010 = 7.5 (UTI --- recheck for WBCs)*** vet said this could be the same UTI from 11/2010
Ultrasound in December was fine.
3/2009 was the last time her urine came back clear, every other one has been cloudy.
The Sept. 2010 visit had to be done by cysto because we couldn't get a sample. It was Labor Day weekend so we had to see the relief vet to have it done. When the urinalysis came back clean the next day, she put on the chart that it was urinary incontinence and we haven't been able to get that diagnosis changed.
ETA: Rexy, I'll be PMing you in the next day or so. Thanks!
ETA again: No 2nd opinion yet. We've decided to see what the specialist says at the consult when they've actually seen Chance in "person". I've decided to have her records reviewed by a different vet clinic to get a 2nd opinion on if the scope is needed. I hate her having to be put under again so soon (her last was Jan. 31). Fresh eyes may help!
And Dogster really needs to make it so you can still see previous posts when replying!
