|Okay, last week we ended the 6 week course of antibiotcs...Toto spent the day at the vets again today with ANOTHER UTI. Well, actually he doesn't have any bacteria showing this time, BUT there are casts and he is peeing all thru the house again.
Good news, except for being slightly dehydrated, today's blood work shows NO kidney issues, yah hoo!!
But, he continues to become quite dehydrated at times almost daily, but is drinking well and plenty. He is on Cosequin and urinary acidifiers and his PH was fine, BUT, today's ultrasound showed possible issues with the bladder lining and shape. Kidney ultrasound also showed tiny kidneys, but since the bloodwork looked decent the vet felt those may be normal for him.
We are sending off his urine sample to IDEXX for a report on what type of cells the casts are and will go from there after that report, perhaps an exploratory surgery on his bladder.
This is getting VERY OLD! Not only is it a pain for me cleaning up after the peeing, but it also upsets him and he ends up spending a lot of time sulking under my desk.
