Cats' kidneys are just so darn fragile.


Lets hope she's just got an infection and a course of antibiotics will clear her up. XXXX
TY al for clearing this up. Catsmom as usual excellent summation/backup


So vet called & ordered Zenequin at 1/2 tab of 25mg today. Picked up at noon & begun at 3pm. It is an antibio. If effective vs unknown strain bacteria ( won't know for sure til Tues, when our cat vet gets urine culture results from yest that I dropped off to her) we'll see if bacteria strain is correct treatment w/ Zenequin.



If no, she'll switch to another antibio to clear bladder infection. The Urine Spec. Gravity test level, reveal normal USG urine concentrate -- thus low chance of kidneyissue as of now, said vet.



More Thurs. Again..TY again all & Rene shout out to you too for kind concerns re this all.



Please keep paws crossed y'all.

I was also feeding a raw diet. Give it a try. Cats love the taste because it is organ meat. You don't really have to crush it like I did but if it is crushed it is easier for them to digest.
ANy worry of maltodextrin or other chemicals found in the product? If not, then I think it is a very good supplement. I'm leery re these additives causing additional probs tho but unsure, as I'm no chemical substance expert re cat health/nutrition. But TY much for this & will look into it alot more.
