Guest caiteag Posted August 11, 2008 Share Posted August 11, 2008 (edited) Ty had a vet appointment this morning. The last culture we did on his urine showed a lot of bacterial growth again. He had to go with a full bladder (oh boy was THAT a challenge!) and our vet used a syringe to extract urine directly from his bladder. She wants to find out where the bacteria is coming from.. whether the infection is in his bladder or if the urine is picking up the bacteria on the trip out of his body. They checked the gravity again, and it was 1.050 and so now we wait for the culture. Update August 13: The urine take directly from Ty's bladder is "clean". No bacterial growth on the culture at all. So the urine is picking up the bacteria on the way out of his body. I now have a tube of panolog ointment and I will be administering it once a day. The vet said we didn't HAVE to treat with it, but her concern was the the bacteria would work it's way back up to the bladder potentially. I am NOT looking forward to doing this one.. I am not sure if he is going to be looking at me all doe eyed or if he's going to freak out on me...
