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.


  1. Well, it was *sorta* good news, I guess. Sorry to hear that those pesky WBCs showed up, though. I hate when we have to not feed the kitties ... we feel like such mean parents. :(

    Hugs to you all.

  2. Aw man, I'm sending lots of purrs to Toby. None of this must be any fun for him.

  3. Lots of purrs to Toby.The culture and sensitivity test should at least determine if there's bacteria for certain, what kind and of course what type of antibiotic to use if anything is found. We hope for negative results, that there's nothing brewing after all. Paws crossed.

  4. At least no vet trip this time. Whew!
    (every little bit helps)
    We'll be purring for sweet Toby!

  5. Sweetheart, love and purrs to you. Get totally better! Please.

  6. Toby, you gotta be all better soon, dude!

  7. Aw, Toby. We hope your pees are okay. It's a bummer having to go through this stuff.

  8. many purrs to you. We have had enough cat troubles to hope yours is better soon.
