    Seriously, I'm sooo sick of her being on pred so often, that's why we are trying Atopica. If she would just stop scratching herself to pieces... agh these bullie allergies

    I've heard pretty good things about Atopica, hope its exactly what she needs!

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    Anyway, just gave her her first dosage! She'll be on it twice a day for 20 days - which seems like a very long time to me. She's been on pred for a while now for allergies and we have to stop that as Vet says pred often causes UTIs because it lowers acidity in the urine (or something). So she will be itchy but she'll be okay. We started Atopica like a month ago so *hopefully* that will work and keep her allergies under control now!
    Oh good… well NOT good for the UTI, but glad that it's not too serious. Hope Matlida is feeling better

    Glad she's going to be OK. One thing though...you said that prednisone lowers pH in urine and when ever the pH balance is off balance for a period of time there can develope bladder stones. Bladder stones most definedly cause blood in urine. Urate stones are not visible in X-ray...

    so hope the Atopica kicks in -- I also hate the pred !!

    Oh no. Matilda refused her breakfast just now. This has NEVER happened. I called the vet I'm waiting for them to call me back. Could the antibiotic be hurting her tummy? She's been on it almost a week now.

    She keeps walking up to her food, sniffing, and walking away. I even put a little ice pop (we make her special ones that she loves) on it! Now what's going on?!

    Antibiotics do mess w/their tummies… can you add some yogurt to it?!! Or maybe some warm water to see if that peaks her interest?!!

    I do have yogurt but those ice pops are literally her favorite thing - this one is apple flavored! If that won't do it, I don't think anything will.

    It's so strange because I gave her a pill pocket with her antibiotic, Atopica, and last dose of pred (we weaned her off it, as per vet instructions) and she ate that fine as always, then one second later I poured her food and she wouldn't eat it? Like, the antibiotic wouldn't have instantaneously made her sick?

    And she's been on it I think since Monday and eating fine?

    Wishing you luck that this is all temporary side effects of the antibiotics.

    I'm so glad to hear it but isn't it weird that it's affecting her 5 days in??

    Ok so our normal vet isn't there today. The fill in called and said it's most definitely the antibiotic BUT the strain of bacteria her bladder infection is is pretty much resistant to every other kind so he doesn't want to switch her. She recommended chicken and rice and pepsid.

    I was getting the chicken out when Til started eating a little bit!! Yay! I hope this means her poor tummy is settling
