|Okay. Mom had me to the vet tonight. They checked my boy business...and indeed I'm paying too much attention to it. That's why it's a little sore looking. Good thing I was, though, because when mom took the sample in, they discovered I had crystals in my urine and my pH level was high.
The doctor didn't seem too worried about the crystals yet because he said the high pH level causes those crystals.
He, of course, wanted to put me on prescription food. Mom's not a big fan of Science Diet or Purina, so she's going to take another sample in to see if removing the fish food from my diet helped at all. For a while there, I was getting a 1/4 can of fish food every day then free fed Innova dry mixed with Frohmm...Salmon flavored of all things. Mom didn't know that fish food was bad.
Are there any other foods out there that might be good for me to eat? All the soft food I eat is pretty healthy...blue spa...natural balance...mom even tried drs. foster and smith food for me. And the dry I eat is Innova, which is healthy, too. I know the pet store has a UTI paste that has cranberries and stuff in it, but most of the food I eat has that in anyway. But is that UTI paste even safe? Does anyone else use it?
I've got two other sisters and one other brother and mom doesn't want to disrupt the balance of things too much.
Has anyone ever heard of fish food raising the pH level?
Of course, once she can finally get me to give her another sample, my pH might be down, but she's trying to be ready with an alternative...just in case...she's a worrywart, but at least I know it's 'cause she loves me.
