Three doses so far, urine is just as bloody, cat slightly more agitated, still eating and drinking. Shouldn't we start seeing improvements by now? Buster was healthy up to yesterday morning. Emergency vet says wait 2-3 days, for antibiotics to help,my primary vet is closed on Mondays. I am thinking go back to ER by tonight. Again, shouldn't we start seeing improvements by now?

It usually takes about three days for the antibiotic to kick in.

Yes, I think you need a bit more time. Note: if you cat worsens or stops eating, then please call your vet immediately.

I've treated one of my girls for a uti twice in the past, and both times it took a good 3 days to see any change or relief. Having patience is hard to do when our kids are sick, but that's what it takes sometimes.
Having said that, if he's still passing blood after 3 days, I would take him back for a recheck.

This morning he seems to be better. Less blood in the urine. Whew.

His Instagram career is just starting, there's a lot riding on his success.

Buster is a good looking fellow, and thanks for the photo. Hope he continues to do better.

So sorry Buster wasn't feeling well. It can be so scary when pets feel fine one minute and then are in the ER the next. I wanted to share my Tabitha's story because I went through a similar ordeal. Tabitha kept getting one UTI after another. The antibiotics work and then we would finish and then I would see the signs again....back to the vet. I found out that diet can be an issue and I make sure to feed Tabitha canned and raw food only--no dry. This site has some helpful information too: https://www.askariel.com/cat-and-dog...ons-s/1862.htm
