My male cat, eleven years old, has been suffering from urinary tract infections these past few weeks. We took him to the ER about a month ago because we were afraid that there may be a blockage, though the vet there said she didnt feel anything, gave him a shot of antibiotics, and two hundred dollars later, sent us on our way. It worked for as long as the antibiotics were suppose to last for, but when they wore off the infection returned.
We found more blood in his urine, his behavior had changed again(rolling on the floor, in and out of litter box, licking genitals, ect) and so, again out of fear of a blockage, we took him to the ER. Another two hundred and we were told his infection wasnt cleared up with the last type of antibiotics. The vet gave us a liquid amoxicillin to give to him, and again it seemed to clear up.
He's been off them for a couple of days now, and hes acting up again. I have an appointment with the normal vet set up for tomorrow morning, but it makes me so sad to watch him pace around and be uncomfortable.
There was more blood in the urine, but he's still peeing, though Im worried because he just threw up some wet food I gave him earlier, which he didnt do the last few times.
I cant afford to bring him in to the ER again for them to give him another round of antibiotics and not actually tell us why this happens so often, but I worry about how he'll do overnight and the rest of today.
Does anyone have any tips I can do to relieve his uncomfort?
