    Lisa, I have nothing to offer...I know someone will be along soon who can help. I just wanted to offer my support. I know how horrible it is when they hurt and you want to help, but don't know how. Sending hugs, prayers and good thoughts from me and Dudley for you and Stoney LaRue!

    My Usko has had prostatitis and was given antibiotics and Ypozane to shrink his prostate. Unfortunately I have no idea what could help your boy, other than pain meds at this point. Don't you have an ER vet where you could go. Prostatitis can be really painful.

    OH MY,,, well IMO it may be worth starting him on some cranberry tablets, put a teaspoon of ACV in one meal a day, maybe a warm compress on his bum to do a little drainage. a dollop of some yogurt on one meal a day won't hurt. and how about bottled water? I'd say it's worth a shot

    thanks to all for your input! Saw Vet today, got antibiotic and pain meds, he is better! over the weekend i got some NaturVet cranberry relief and after one day of this he felt some relief,some pumkin and yogurt added to diet and he is no longer constipated and that helped as well!
    God Bless!
    Lisa and Stoney
