Re: cat news

Thanks, Betsy, for your input.  Pinkerton is set for surgery on  Friday.  She 
is on antibiotics again now.  Dr. said they would not  know what type (?) of 
stone it is till then.  One type can be controlled by  diet regulation, the 
other comes back......didn't say what to do about that  one.   I assume 
calcifications and stones are the same?  Xrays  show a couple spots on the kidneys.  
Not sure why the urgency for surgery  then, if there is a chance they could 
shrink on their own?  We didn' t put  her on any special diet after the kidney 
infection the first time.   Hmmm......never had anything like this from younger 
cats.  My first group  (Flaksey etc.) never had any ailments at all, nothing, 
until they were quite old  (over 10)....this is a bit alarming from a cat so 
Other problems I'm seeing with this group this time is cysts on the skin  
under the chin/neck that rupture.  First time I saw this, I almost  died....there 
was blood everywhere.  Vet didn't seemed alarmed, said it was  comon benign 
cysts.   Never had that with the last group  either....this time it's happened 
twice already.  This whole group is under  5 years of age.

My cat,  Cody, was passing both types of crystals and had blood in his urine
about  18 months ago. After two sets of antibiotics, the crystals cleared,
but the  blood was still in the urine. The doc did an x-ray and one of his
kidneys  is smaller than the other and had calcifications on it.
She put him on dry  C/D for 6 months and then rechecked and those
califications pretty much  disappeared. After another 6 months, we rechecked
and HE still had blood in  his urine and his pH was high again. So Cody got a
dose of antibotics to  kill a potential infection. Then, pH was again high so
we have added C/D  canned food to his regime. His pH is now normal and he is
still one happy  cat
