My little kitty is is really good health...but I noticed this morning that she was making frequent trips to the l/b without producing much at all, if anything.

Anyhow...I took her to the vet right away...and her urine was bloody, and she couldn't stop piddling (the vet said it spasms)

She definately has an infection...she had white blood cells in her urine.

The vet also took blood, and will know results tomorrow to know if kidneys are involved....(she said the concentration was 10-20 I think...normal is 10-35, renal failure maybe 10/12?)

I have to have in shut up in a room now, because of the blood....which I hate to do.

The vet put her on an antibiotic and an opiod for pain.

Any idea how long this will last?

Thanks!

Angie

She needs further diagnostics. Usually, a UTI in an older cat is often a symptom of stones, probably kidney stones, which are a serious problem (although little can be done in the way of treatment). It can also be an early sign of a bladder tumor. Or of diabetes. Ultrasound is the best diagnostic tool for this type of problem in an older cat.
