Like a urine infection, but it isnt
Please Help.If you dont know the answer, brainstorming is fine
Buddy, male, 10 yrs. Low kidney values. He eats Purina NF, a low protein prescription food. A good boy
Symptoms like Urine infection. Hard time peeing. Slow to get up. Frequent urination. Out of nowhere he will go on the floor which he never ever ever does. Gets eventually so bad he cant go at all and has to be catharized.
One Vet and one Specialist can not find an infection in his urine
Yet Keflex works will help after a couple days of doses.
The normal urine infection Antibiotic Baytral does nothing
Both Drs are trying to tell us it something with the bladder pee valve and how the bladder contracts ( or doesnt contract) and give him 2 drugs. He took these once and it did nothing. Yet he is being prescribed the same now by his specialist.
The first time we didnt give him the anti biotic and took their drugs he got so bad we had to get him catharized
Neither Dr will take us serious when we tell them Keflex helps him. All 7 times he got it they were coincidences.
We dont know which professional to turn to next. So Im turning to you
If you have any experience with this, heard of it from a neighbors friends cousin or even wild ideas, we would love to hear them
