Went back to the vet today with Frazier (recheck on his ongoing ear infection). We took toby along too, as he has started licking his hair off again (we got another steroid shot) and has started peeing/pooping outside of the box.

Vet did a urinalysis on him and said that they found crystals (didn't specify type) and bacteria (which she said could be causing the crystals). So, sent me home with liquid antibiotics. I just hope it IS the bacteria causing the crystals and not the diet he's on (he's still eating the green pea/duck diet for allergies).

Would NB green pea/duck be bad for urine ph?
