I’m so sick of going to the vet that I now pee in my carrier both there and back home! 😾 Human anticipated this, and managed to get a urine sample! The vet was quite impressed. Apparently, Human is the first cat owner to bring in a sample. My urinalysis came back clean. It also came back clean the last time the old vet took a sample, so I definitely do not have crystals or bacteria or anything else in my urine. I’m peeing normal sized pee clumps, and I do pee every time (Human diligently checks and scoops the box every single time). It just hurts after I pee! The vet thinks I still haven’t fully healed since it was an awfully difficult catheter placement (took Emergency Vet 1.5 hours to get it in). She gave me a steroid shot, and I’m back on my Buprenex pain meds twice a day. Human will call the vet Thursday to let her know how I’m doing and we’ll go from there. I may need to be placed on a longer term pain med if I’m still hurting when these meds run out. She wants to give me more time to see if I fully heal on my own.
I’m eating Royal Canin Urinary SO dry food along with Hills Urinary Care c/d wet food with added water. I was terrified of the stupidly loud water fountain, so Human returned it today, and will order me a quiet one off of Amazon. But I am eating and drinking normally.
Human here. I want to thank everyone for sharing your experiences and suggestions with bladder crystals, and water fountain videos! I also appreciate all the well wishes. I feel so terrible my lil guy is in pain, and it’s very stressful. It just breaks my heart he is still going through this. I just want my lil guy better! 😭💞
