What antibiotic is she on?
I hope it helps.
My vet is a specialist too, but just not in imaging. And I am fortunate that they do the ultrasound at her clinic, but the images are just sent to the internist for formal interpretation. My vet runs a cat-only hospital and I love it! It really helps their stress levels when they don't have dogs barking at them or in the background.
She's now on amoxicillin twice a day. She was on Zeniquin for two weeks about a month ago and also did great, but a week after the dose was stopped the clots came right back so it seems the antibiotics just mask the problem for a while. She didn't have any bacteria in her urine so it doesn't really make much sense as to why the antibiotics help, but they do at least in the short term. She also gets Cosequin twice a day as well, but I can't vouch yet if that is helping her as it's only been a month.
Hopefully the ultrasound will get us on the right direction as far as a treatment plan. I'm not one who likes to just try things until we find something that works. I think you get to the root of the problem, then you treat. I know there's a possibility that we still won't find anything and we will have to just treat as we can, but my fingers are crossed that we have a definitive answer in one way or another.
