Help!!! I have a 16 year old female cat that has been passing blood clots in her urine. This started on Oct 20 and she was given (By her Vet) antibiotics. 10 days later,after no progress,he put her on stronger meds. He did do blood work and took 1 x-ray. Both came back fine. He never did a urine sample and my cat goes about 5 days completly normal and then it hits her again. Crying,squating,anywhere and passing small drops of urine and little pieces of blood!!! Called vet and now he said it might be a tumor and given her age he said it would not suprise him. Now he wants to put her on more antibiotics and yet he never did a urine sample. Does any of this make any sense ????? He has always been a good vet ,but now I am beginning to wonder if he is not very well informed about cats and urinary problems. He just seems to think that she is old and there is not much that can be done. Everyone I have talked to said it is most unusual to treat a possible urinary infection without first doing a urine test. Any answers will be greatly appreciated. She is a 100% indoor cat and we have had her since she was 6 weeks old. I need help as I love her and do not want to delay any longer.
