Oh, no! My cat has struvite crystals!

Oh, no! My cat has struvite crystals.  Last week I observed my cat, Presley hanging out by the litterbox and urinating frequently and noticed blood.  He was also peeing on blankets frequently too.  I contacted my veterinarian and he told me to come in immediately which I did.  On a side, if a male cat has a urinary tract infection, it can be very serious if left untreated.  Male cats have been known to die within in three days as they get blockage.

So I went to the vet and he said he does indeed have a Urinary Tract Infection.  Thankfully he was not blocked.  The bladder area was soft which was good.  He suggested Presley start on a veterinary food diet and take an antibiotic called Orbax, that I administer once a day by mouth and a prescription of 1/4 tablet of Valium to relax his urethra, and drink a lot of water.  He also sent me home with a test kit to get a sample of his urine.  The test turned out to be that Presley has the Struvite Crystals.

I am not a fan of veterinary food.  So, I went to Healthy Pets with Dr. Karen Becker‘s website and read that raw rabbit would be a good protein for my cat and cranberry helps too.  So I purchased the raw rabbit, which Presley devoured thankfully.  I also went to a local vitamin store and purchased Stone Free,™ which is an herb that dissolves stones and crystals as well as provides urinary, kidney and gall bladder support, and cranberry d’mannose.  I mixed a tablet of each and put it in a glass with 1 oz of purified water which lasts three days —  On day 3, you must change to new tablets and water —

Then I filled up an eyedropper and have been giving it to him two times a day.  I also purchased a cat water fountain placed away from the food.  Very important is your cat have water.  So far Presley, my cat is doing well.  He is peeing good.  I have been checking his litter box for blood which there has been no presence of thankfully.  So far this regiment is working well.  As a cat sitter in Jupiter, FL, it is my honor and duty to keep my clients and audience informed of how Presley is doing.

*Disclaimer  This is not to substitute for veterinary advice.  Always consult with your veterinarian and follow what you feel is right for you.  This is a very serious challenge that requires veterinary attention.
