Hi friends! Well, I had to make a trip to the Emergency Vet yesterday afternoon. My Non-blog Mom (who was luckily off work for the Martin Luther King holiday) noticed I was visiting the cat box a lot but not peeing.
My pee results from Saturday had come back (our regular vet called earlier in the day) and my alkaline was high, 8.5. She said I need to go on prescription food. No UTI was apparent in the lab results. Mom brought those with her to the ER Vet. They took my temp (normal) and took some blood. They gave me some sub Q fluids so my Mom's could see if I was peeing okay tonight. They gave me an anti-spasmodic to help my bladder feel better.
They offered to keep me overnight (NO THANKS!) but they noticed I was pretty nervous and figured I would be better off at home.
I have been on a homemade raw food diet for seven years now (from Dr Pitcairn's book) and my Moms are not very excited about feeding me canned food. They don't really trust the manufacturers. They plan to have Busby's pee tested to see if he has high alkaline too. His was normal when it was tested in 2010.
So my blood work should be available tomorrow and I will keep you all posted. In the meantime, if you can spare some purrs I would appreciate it.
