After 16 weeks of various tests and medications, her bladder is no better The next step is a visit to Liverpool Small Animal Hospital for Hatti to have a Cystoscopy (camera into bladder). Was really hoping it didn’t come to this, but chatting with Vet, Louise, there is now no alternative-can’t leave her like this, and at least we’ll know exactly what is going on, and whether or not it is treatable.
I knew as soon as I got her urine sample that things weren’t right, and was so disappointed. At least, hopefully sometime next week, we’ll have full results and can take it from there.
Fingers crossed that whatever it is treatable. Got to the stage where I need to know and can then take it from there…
Merz, you are right. The sooner your Hatti girl has her tests, the sooner you and Louise can help her back to full health again. Isn’t it just awful when they are ill? Bless her.
Please give her a cuddle from me xx
Mollie, she is a yellow Labrador. Brought her home from Labrador Rescue when she was about 14 months old and was badly treated She was a nightmare at first, but turned into a little star I know more about dogs really than cats, and having worked at the Vets for 8 years, I have picked up a lot of knowledge about illness, and you know what they say about that…little bit of knowledge can be a dangerous thing!
Thank you Meg. I’ve just looked at the link you very kindly posted, but she has had her bladder x-rayed and scanned and no stones showed up. Also had sterile urine taken from her bladder and no crystals showed up, but thanks again. At least with the cystoscopy they will be able to see all round and in her bladder, and be able to take biopsies if they find anything.
When you hear the results Merz you will know which way to go, dont be fobed off by any-one you will do what is right by her, talk to her , she will tell you.Why do we have pets… because they love us and we them, God Bless her.
