And the Vet Said....
This morning Toby finished his Baytril. I was going to take him to the vet for a urinalysis on Friday, but was lucky enough to get a urine sample at lunch today. He was very obliging, I must say.
They did the UA and said: no blood, bacteria or crystals BUT there are white blood cells, which I am told, indicates a low grade infection brewing. So in ten days we need a urine culture to determine precisely what medication he should get next. And to make it extra fun, I have to not feed them after midnight because he might require sedation to get the sample (he didn't need it at the last vet so I don't think we will need it here, but he is definitely getting crankier about all this).
My poor lil orange guy. At least I spared him this vet trip. And he would need to get his anal glands checked again soon anyway.
And that's the latest, folks.
