Well, my persian Sluggo has developed what I think is urinary tract infection for the third time. Some of you know the history and the problems I'd been having. Anyway, called the vet for another prescription because he's showing all the symptoms again. At first my vet prescribed Baytril, but after scrutinzing his past test results she thought we should give Cosequin a try. Cosequin is glucosomine, an herbal supplement. Because Sluggo's past tests have shown low white blood cell counts, she thought he might have a common problem that affects the lining of the bladder. This makes the kitty have problems similiar to a UTI, but explains the spotting of blood. So, if this is Sluggo's problem, I'm told this cosequin should work in a couple days. Keep your fingers crossed! I'd rather give my kitty an herbal supplement the rest of his life than keep feeding him antibiotics. I'll keep you posted on how this goes.
