I need some help-Ginger is my 4 yrs. old siamese who so far seemed to be one of the healtier kitties in my bunch. About 2 weeks ago I noticied her constantly licking her rear end-I first thought maybe her anal glands were full , but then it became totally obsesive. I took her in to the vet where I work and they thought it may be a urinary tract infection-but when we checked her urine it was fine. So not really believing that "there was nothing wrong", I took her to my regular vet on Saturday-she said she probably had a bad case of vaginitis-her "danger zone" is as red as a fire truck-we are also planning an ultrasound for her tomorrow to make sure she is not passing any bladder stones and that is cause for the irratation. We also tried to put her on antibiotics but this very experienced vet tech can not get a pill down her to save my life! I have tried pill pockets, liquids formulas and sneaking it into her food-I cannot get it down her!!! Has anyone had any experience with the vaginitis and of so what/how did you treat. The other thing I forgot to metnion is that she is now vomiting all over my house. I just want to make sure she is healthy-as we are going on vacation in a little less than a month and I already have a seizuring kitten to worry about as well.
