Life around here has been crazy.
My old cat-- of 20 yrs and 8 months died. She was eating poorly for about a wk and then on a Thursday she refused food and Friday afternoon- she curled up in a ball for a nap and died. Very peaceful. She was not alone. I am glad that it happened that way. It is so sad to have to take them to the vet for help in passing. So RIP Cleeker, she will be missed.
And as I write this... my 7 year old cat Gus-- is at the vet with another bout of urinary tract blockage...UGH! he is on good quality urinary pet food--Uretic by Wysong. But according to my vet he was full of crystals and bateria. They have been flushing his system this week and I should have him back tomorrow if all goes ok.
Does anyone out there have similar problems with Urinary Crystals? And what do you do about it? I have a problem with Hills Diet.. I had emailed them before and they can't tell me the meat source for their foods and they can't guarantee that the animals used in making the foods were steroid free and antibiotic free. I can't believe that Hills has the monopoly on Urinary foods. Maybe Wysong is not the food for us anymore- he has always had it. But I need his food to be 'healthy'. And if I have to-- I will be okay with cooking his food for him, at least I know it will be USDA inspected and free from harmful things.
Thanks for your help!
