Q. female cat has had a UTI for three weeks. 3 trips to the vet and 3injections. Doing better until after final shot yesterday but now is sick again.

Answered By

A. Urinary tract conditions can be very frustrating to treat and often do recur and relapse. A full urinalysis exam including sediment exam and culture and sensitivity test may help to identify which bacteria are present, any other complicating factors and the best option to try and eliminate these episodes. Certain diets and supplements may help depending on her lab results but it is important to have the full picture in order to maximize cure rate
