Hi all, I'm new around here, and my mommy is looking for some info, and thought this might help...
Last week, mom noticed there was blood in my urine...she sat around all night watching my brother and I cos she couldn't figure out which one of us were peeing blood...she was kinda sad when she saw it was me, as I'm her little girl. Well, wouldn't you know it the next day she loaded me up into that little box and made me ride all the way to the vet in the box?!? She knows I like going for a ride, just not in the box! Well, the vet couldn't get a good urine sample from me, and kept me for a few hours. They told mom that they didn't know what was wrong - it was either crystals or possibly bacterial. They told her that by the time I was done with the anti-biotic, if I was still bleeding, it'll come down to x-rays now. She's kinda concerned, with all the kidney problems that have been going on.
I have been on my meds for almost a week now, and mom has noticed that my urine is starting to smell really sweet. She knows that I'm going to have to go back to the vet, but does anyone have any ideas as to what she might be up against? She doesn't care if I'm sick, she wants to make me better, but she'd like to have an idea of what this might mean before going to the vet.
I've still be fairly active. I've backed off chasing my brother a bit, but I'm still drinking some water, and as far as mom can tell I'm eating a little...any ideas? Sorry to be a bother and all..I'm just scared.
