Hello,

I am sorry to hear you are worried about your cat. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help. My name is Rebecca.

Do you know if your vet did a urinalysis? Or any test?

Pink urine can be a sign of a bladder infection, stones or crystals in the bladder, or "sterile cystitis" a condition where there is inflammation but not infection (no bacteria, so it is"sterile"). For stones and sterile cystitis, a change in diet can help. If there is an infection, antibiotics may be needed. A urinalysis is usually where we start to determine which of these is going on.

What was the medication that you tried from your vet?

Phenoxybenzamine
Cat Veterinarian: Rebecca, Cat Veterinarian replied 2 years ago

Thank you for that. Did it help at all? Was a urinalysis done?

This medication is supposed to relax the urethra, but does not treat infection, crystals, stones, or inflammation.

How is your cat doing? Can I help with or answer anything else?

If this were my own cat, I would do a urinalysis to look for a bladder infection or crystals in the urine.

Oops, hit return too soon... It's a DSH feline, coming up on
It's a DSH feline, coming up on 15 years. Progressive increase in frequency of vomiting over the past several months. History of vomiting, decreased appetite, weight loss, dehydration several months ago. Took her to my vet, routine labs significant only for elevated glucose. X-rays showed increased transverse colon gas, and some sort of jumbled stuff more ventral to that, kind of looking like full bowel (the vet did not feel confident in definitive radiological diagnosis). I took her home with a bag of saline and gave her fluids subQ for a week and she gradually improved, started eating and drinking again. She seemed to get back to normal, but then seemed like she seemed to get an upset stomach and vomit more and more easily. At first it was just after eating grass, which was not unusual for her. Then she seemed more and more likely to vomit if I gave her more than a tiny bit of milk. Lately she has been vomiting without having eaten anything unusual (or anything at all), maybe every two or three days now. Emesis is fairly clear, mucusy, with a tinge of pink/red like blood, and maybe a little tiny bit of "coffee-grounds." I have an appointment with the vet in two days. My concern is about a GI cancer, vs. maybe a chronic obstruction or torsion. I have the abdominal X-ray images, if there were some way to transmit them. … read more
