|BETTER BUT NOT CURED (1)||20%|
I am praying that this post will help my boy. He is a 11 year old male Himalayan and is my world.
Last year Mercury got blocked from bad food, namely Purina brand food, the stuff you get at the grocery store. That vet bill was 1,200 US with a 5 day ICU stay with our vet. Mercury did survive but for awhile there it did not seem like it, I was so grateful for his survival. Sadly Purina knows it's the ash content in their food. Comment to me was this is why they have created a brand for urinary issues. They make your cat sick 1st then give you and upgraded food to prevent it.
I swore never again... I have stuck to that no Purina, However recently I bought a brand of dry food and you guessed it- checked the bag, it's Purina... Due to the economic down turn I can not afford a huge vet bill. He has of 2 hours ago started symptoms again after only 3 weeks on this dry food. I noticed yesterday incessant cleaning of his privy parts, and 2 hours ago squatting and unable to urinate save for dribbles, I have given him the cranberry juice, and we have put the ACV on him as the post recommend, I have also put some in wet food for him hoping he will ingest it and that it will help him.
Please pray this helps him, I am sooooo scared right now.... treatment was given 30 mins ago...
If anyone can tell me how often to administer, I would really appreciate it. If this works, all of you will be my heroes. Mercury is family to us, and I feel so responsible. After reading these posts if he pulls thru Never again will he eat dry food!!!!
Praying for the best outcome, as my daughter and I sit by his side...
