my cat had Urinary Tract Disease and now he vomits s/d food

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi !
Well... I had a bad x-mas when i had to travel to the closest vet for 6 hrs to get treated for “Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease†or FLUTD i did not know the cat had a problem peeing because i have 6 cats and 3 litter boxes.. anyway.... my cat was blocked, the vet drained the urine and blood with a tube in his penis and he had it for a couple of days. after he took it he was peeing by himself so he sent us home, of course he is still taking antibiotics.
The vet described Hills Prescription S/D and for 2 days he was eating it well and now 2 days he is vomiting it.
I cannot reach him now... does anyone think is just that he does not like the food? do you know of any similar food i can have?
I really appreciate any answer and hope that everything is ok and is just a bad stomach, maybe reaction to so much antibiotics?
Thanks so much and happy new year !!

Call a Vet . Is he on Antibiotics. My Cat Coco was on S/D last year for Bladder Stones and is on C/D now. She has a Infection again and was Barfing too. The Clavamox caused all of it and made her not want to eat either. She is on Cephalexen now and has barfed it once so far in 3 days. She was on Clavamox for 4 weeks. I think its the Meds making him sick.

Thanks for your replies.
He is on Baytril and Flagyl
I think is the food because he just dont want it... i tried a little of canned tunna and the water on it and he devoured it.
I hope I will have better luck tomorrow.
Thanks

Boil some chicken in just water. Feed both the plain broth and some shredded chicken to your kitty until you can get hold of the vet. Also, you can try feeding meat baby food. These are all OK for a kitty with FLUTD and sensitive stomach. Of course, this is not a long term solution - just ideas for "easy" food on kitty's tummy until you can get hold of the vet.

Talk to your vet about feeding options. Royal Canin makes a high quality dry food (you didn't say whether you feed wet or dry food) for kitty's with lower urinary tract problems. Our kitties are on a diet of Science Diet C/D - we feed them they dry to free feed, and we feed them the chicken flavored c/d wet food once a day. Science Diet isn't a very high quality food, but it works for our kitties with sensitive stomachs, urinary tracts that are prone to infection, and the kitties with problems with crystals. Maybe the c/d would work for your kitty where the s/d doesn't? Again - something that needs to be discussed with the vet.

Hope your kitty feels better soon! (Also, do you know what caused the problem? Calcium oxalate crystals or struvite crystals? With the diet, it seems like the problem was calcium oxalate crystals. Either way - just keep a close eye on kitty for the next week. Sometimes they don't get all the crystals with the flush. Our kitty got blocked again within three days of coming home after two days at the vet).

Oh - DUH. Cats usually have sensitive stomachs - and switching food is best done gradually - or this can happen. It may just be that the food needs to be switched slowly. I know he was OK for two days - but it could be that now it's completely in his system, it's bothering him.

Try mixing it with the old food - and make the proportions such that it takes about 5 days to go from the old food/new food mix to just all new food.

This might help,

Laurie

Please speak to the Vet and let us know the results.
My kitten had a Urinary Tract Infection and the antiobiotics seemed to clear it up.

Since last night he doesn't want to eat / drink and pees with discomfort, just a dozen drops every time. Talked to my vet in athens (6 hrs from here, this is an island and i depend on ferry schedules) and said that it should be catheterized and i have to go to the local vet. so i took it to the local vet and he tried unsuccesfully, it did not get true (he does not have much experience with pets) but he managed to squeeze out the pee (together with blood) when we got home he peed a few drops again and drank a little of water. we called the vet and said that because of his condition the operation is very difficult and the risk is very high.
And 2 days ago he was perfect ! eating, drinking, peeing !! why suddenly again this ! For those of you who do not know he was catheterized on the 24th and held it for 2 days then he was peeing by himself. Was diagnosed struvite crystals.
Whal shall i do if this happends again? now he is lying beside me and he is still dizzy from the anesthesia. but if he has discomfort again? are the risks also high where you live and just my vet does not have much experience? i also do not want to see him suffer. i am a wreck and i pray for him to get better but what i really need is a miracle.
thanks

Does your vet carry Waltham's Royal Canin for Urinary? I don't like SD foods - none of my cats would ever eat it. Charlie had UTI and now is on RC - Urinary. Maybe your cat would do better on RC

I need to ask and then put an order.
IS there any medicine that dissolves the struvite crystals immediately? any drug or something else? does anybody knows?
thanks
