Bladder infection maybe

I think one of my cats, no I know one of my cats has a bladder infection. With 11 inside it will take a bit of detective work and process of elimination to figure out who it is.

My question is, because my vet is out of town this coming week. What is the best antibiotic for a bladder infection? I want to find out if I have something on hand (my vet gives me extra) or if I will need to disturb my vet's vacation with a phone call.

I'm finding somone is peeing on the dog bed and then I saw light blood spots at the water bowls and through the house this morning. We have a spy camera that we use to find out who the sick on is. I hope I can catch them today because I know whomever it is, they have to be in bad pain. Unfortunately for cats they hide their illnesses too well..

Thanks

I have no experience with this condition.
I just wanted to let you know my thoughts are with you and hope you will find the cat that is probably in pain
Best of luck

Mozart's going thru a UTI right now, so I sympathize, especially if you can't spot the invalid yet. Baytril is what we're treating it with, and I think it's a common one used. Check that it hasn't expired, and make sure you find and bring the kitty in when your vet returns, since I don't know if it treats crystals.

If a vet goes out of town, usually he/she has someone cover for them? Then you can have the kitty seen sooner, and the correct meds prescribed. Good luck, keep us posted.

turns out it was my 16 year old dog with the problem. I started him on Amoxi and my vet called from his vacation and told me to keep him on the Amoxi this week and then next week when he's back in town he'll check his urine and put him on another drug as the Amoxi won't work for more than a week. The Axoxi has definitely helped. The blood in the urine has stopped. He's still having pain and discomfort I suppose because he is still having accidents. Other than that he's doing fine, eating and acting normal. Which isn't much activity at 16. HA! Thanks for all your help.

Whew, glad you found out who it was, and the vet got in touch with you! *Crossing fingers* for a quick recovery.
