Cat urinating blood; not UTI.Hey all.
First, I absolutely love this site. Thanks to all of you contributing. I've used it many times but this it my first time posting because I'm getting desperate.
I have a five-year-old male, tuxedo short-haired, indoor/outdoor neutered cat with the following:
Symptoms exhibited for the last month:
- urinating blood
- urinating frequently, often in the bathtub, but pretty much everywhere else too
- urine quantities vary: sometimes a few drops, sometimes a puddle
- seems to be eating and drinking a normal amount; very active; happy and affectionate and does not appear to be in any pain, even when urinating
- urinalysis and blood work performed with no results (all clear)
- was put on Baytril 22mg 1x daily for two weeks with no results
- urinated blood once before a year and a half ago for one day, but it cleared so no action was taken
- history of vomiting cat food periodically, definitely more often than any other cat I've had (maybe a couple times a month)
- recent (last couple years) history of twitching tail and hind quarters, followed by a burst of running and then licking at the area (almost like something had just bit him, though I know he flea-free via Frontline medication)
- in the same area, his fur feels coarse, dry and appears shorter maybe
- since he was a kitten, he's presented wheezing as he falls asleep or as he's purring (tested negative for heart worm disease though)
- somewhat nervous around new people
- very affectionate
- dry-food diet (though looks like I'm going to change that after reading recent forums)
If there's any more information needed, please just ask.
The vet wants to perform an ultrasound to check for foreign bodies, tumors, kidney stones, etc. but it's $375 on top of the $400 I already spent and that's just to diagnose him. I can't afford that, I really can't. I also can't put him down in my right mind. He seems so happy and healthy otherwise.
Any recommendations on remedies and appropriate dosage that I should try would be greatly appreciate by me, my cat and the rest of the family that loves him dearly. Thank you so much in advance.

The behavior you describe of the bursts of running and then licking the rear area sounds like possible vaccine damage, in which case it is also part of his chronic picture.
Good choice on getting your cat off dry food. I hope you are considering raw. It is the single most important step towards better health that you can accomplish on your own.

Do a search on the Yahoo Groups there are plenty of them. www.holisticat.com has a good forum but they make you pay to use it. A lot of good free info on their website though.

please try THLASPI BURSA PASTORIS-Q (20 drops in little water and give its frequent doses to your cat) for 2/3 days. Hopefully your problem will be solved.
