|So, as many of you know I have been having quite the time with my pets getting sick. Now, Sylvester seems to have something going on as well. Before I had brought him in, he was diagnosed with a Urinary Infection, which was treated but now similar symptoms are repeating . So here is what's going on. Might I add that it is not stress related as nothing has changed in our environment, except getting rid of Kito, BUT he had some issues before Kito even arrived.
-Excessive hair pulling on back, by the lower end of his spine, almost to base of tail. Entire underside of tail is completely bald as well. As well as the lower tummy/groin area he is pulling out too.
-Increase of water consumption. I'd say about every 5-10 mins, when up and about, he is back at the water bowl.
-I noticed the other day while scooping the litter box he has a very thick, mucky/soupy like urine.
-Very foul breath, this could be from plaque build up as he hasn't been in, in some time for a teeth cleaning.
I plan on taking him to the vet as soon as I can get in, as they are mighty busy this time of season. But I kinda want to have a heads up on what may be going on with him. Would anyone have any thoughts?
I was thinking he could possibly have another Urinary Track infection. But I also read up on some other severe things like; Thyroid Cancer? Kidney Infection? Anyone know anything about them, could that be a possibility?
