About a couple days I noticed my cat Mialo frequently peeing every 30minutes or so. I thought maybe he over drank. The next day it was even more frequent about every 5 minutes even going on the carpet and bathroom mat. Which he has NEVER done before. He also didn't walk much and excessive licking down there. I checked his symtoms and I was so scared of what I found. I thought it was urethral blockage. But turns out its Cystitis. Found out from the emergency vet. I honestly don't know what half of what this paper I was given is about. I wasn't at the vet at the time. My boyfriend took Mialo and paid for his treatment there. I'm very gratefull for that. He was given pain medication and an antibiotic, Ill be taking him to a regular vet tomorrow, but I'm not sure what else they can do for him.
I don't know to much about Cystitis only that it can't really be cured but it can be managed with food specially made for the crystals in his urine. The vet pressed on his bladder and he let out all his urine and didn't seem bothered by it but she said it was gritty. So I'm going to switch foods. Maybe some canned food to get him more hydrated? He's on a dry food called Wellness. I also found this apple cider vinegar remedy online. It looks like it helped a lot of cat's with similar problems. Though I'm hesitant to try it. I don't want to make the situation worse. Has anybody tried using that remedy?
I'm just so worried about Mialo, I cried for hours thinking he might die and he's still at risk for urethral blockage. I don't know where to start on managing this or how long it will take to get him better. Any advice would be helpful.
