Ashley has UTI again…Yesterday he was glued to the litter-box passing small amounts of urine and blood. Kept syringing him with tuna-flavoured water and cranberry.. also keeping him caged for observation and on wet-food only. He seems much better today. Nushi and Tommy also get syringed as they seem to urinate very infrequently… I don’t think Tommy can be released back – he is quite weak and clumsy. Nushi has poor appetite and gets her special kibble mix and Ocean Fish Feast for wet food. Tommy also has his own mix of kibbles.

Snoopy’s ballooning finally made me stop the free flow of kibbles. Now it’s strictly feeding twice a day and Snoopy will be caged after she finishes her portion until all the food has been removed.

  1. I know wet food is expensive but Ariel, Tini and Salem have all had a UTI at least once, my vet here who has only been a vet for cats the past 30 years told me to take them off all dry food and that was about a year ago, the cats are in perfect health now no urinary issues at all, since there is no dry food they actually urinate A LOT now. Maybe if Ashley has frequent UTI a wet food only diet might benefit him. Just a thought. I hope he gets better, its so hard to see our kitties get sick!

  2. Thanks Jonela, I have just started reducing the dry food… let’s see how it goes.

  3. Someone suggested to use white sesame plus deng-sim water, boild together, let it cool off and syringe 2-3 times a day for 3 days. I am not sure where to get the deng-sim water but if you like to know, I will ask that person. Another one also suggest Chinese Barley.

  4. The Cranberry seems to work fine… I think the main thing is to flush the bladder by giving lots of water (unless there is blockage). Ashley is fine now but I still give him wet food twice a day with water added.
