I can't afford surgery,/procedures. We change the food o wet food urinary tract/haiball prescription multicare (supermarket dry food given before). What's overwhelming is the discomfort/pain noises he's having today has happen before a pinkish drop instead pee. .Clinics want me to bring him in with a 2500 bill at the exit. Does he have cristals? What's the best home treatment for him? Antiinflammatory/pain killers we can find in pet stores if you can't give us a prescription?
Hematuria or blood in urine may be due to different causes: infection, presence of crystals in the bladder or urethra, or cystitis.
Your veterinarian should perform blood test and urinalysis as well as culture to confirm whether there is an infection, and if so, to determine a specific antibiotic. For cystitis, an abdominal ultrasound may be indicated to assess the wall of the bladder, perhaps by contrast.
In the stage where cat is already with pain and difficulties urinating, especially if with blood, there is nothing you can do at home. Your vet should give him antibiotics in order to get rid of the infection. Once the infection is cured, your cat should eat special food for cats with renal /urinary problems.
You should take your cat to your veterinarian to determine the diagnosis and, if necessary, give him a corresponding treatment.
You can always reach an agreement with veterinary clinic and avoid that the health of your pet get affected by it. Do not let more time pass, your pet's health comes first.
All the best for you and Speedy.
