Goodbye URI, Hello UTI! No fun AT ALL.

Mombean:Poor Neekers. I noticed yesterday he would go in the litter box and either pee only a drop or not go at all, and he would be in there for a while, and sometimes meow.
So off we went to the V-E-T at 7:45 at night.
Cloud:They stoled my brother at night! And they didn't come home until late at night! And when they did, he was all blowed up full of water like a balloon! And they let us play for a few minutes and then sepurrated us all night again! No fair!!
Niko:You just won't believe the rough night I had. It hurt like heck to pee but I had to so I kept trying. And then Mom got worried about me, so I got put in the PTU. And then the nice Vettie lady gave me flooids, stole my bloods, and said I was full of poop and gave me an enema too!! And then she STABBED me with Auntie Biotic! What a NIGHT! Then she went out and talked to my Beans, and here is what she said:
Mombean:The ER doctor (who happened to be the same one who helped us say goodbye to Texie) was very very nice. She said the antibiotic for Niko's cold seems to have caused quite a bit of constipation (they actually noticed some of it Monday)and on top of that he has actually a pretty bad UTI. It is NOT in his kidneys though. So he got a shot of long lasting antibiotic, and a bunch of fluids. And an enema. Well, he pooped there, and then he pooped the instant he could get to the litter box back at home, and then he pooped again 20 minutes later, and again this morning....yeah you get the idea! Quite stinky too :) Seems to be peeing a tiny bit better too. Poor guy though. We are quite tired too, didn't get home from the vet's until 11.
One bit of good news though, he is now officially off both cold antibiotics, and the UTI antibiotic was just the one shot, so NO MORE medicines for Niko except the lysine they both get! I'm sure he's happy about that, and we are too!

Poor little Niko; that happens to us humans too, medicines sometimes make other things worse. So we sympathize with you, not that that is any consolation to you... hope you get all your "loo" issues settled up real soon.

Poor little Niko. I had a UTI once, it was not fun! Hope you get to be in good health soon and stay that way for a long long time!

Max said...

Man, I'd have pooped in the car on the way home. I hope he feels better fast...

Eric and Flynn said...

We hope you feel better soon. It's no fun when your pooper won't work. When my pooper broke down I had to have enemies and got stabbed until it got mended again.

Hi, just read your comment - you're saying that steroids (for just right now) could reduce the pain/inflammation so I wouldn't be so loopy? (Writing notes.) ;-)
