First Check up ~


Giant Lady here.
Rose went for her 2 week check up.

Where she just had a bad bladder infection before.
After 2 weeks of the RX feed, her urine is loaded with
Struvite crystals.

Vet kept saying I must be feeding her something else.
Well no, no I am not. I rattled off the RX she sent home with us last time.
Then she said, but you are not feeding the RX can food.
She is the best Vet I could find in the area and the only one to care for cats.
Maybe she just had a long day, but she did not even know the name of one of the RX can foods she sent home with us.

Then the Vet finally said, she could be having a problem with one of the RX can foods.
Sigh ~~~

I am past my limit.  With This many seriously ill animals....
(two cushings horses, one also with IR and founder, another with life threatening allergies and so on)


What can I feed Rose, to make sure the Struvite Crystals go away and stay away?

Her water is triple filtered ... But..... I am not sure it filters out what would cause the Stuvite Crystals.

She was being fed a grain free, high meat diet.... but who can trust any canned food any more, even the high end ones.

She is only 2 1/2 years old....

Rose is feeling better, bouncing around and being her usual self.
Even with all the tiny crystals in her system.

Photo is of Rose in my spot taking a bath. LOL

(Rose and I are sorry we haven't responded to folks much, between her working on getting Well and me caring for her... the Giant human is pretty burnt out)
