Customer Question

Thank you for your response and thank you in advance. I am just hoping to have some help understanding his results. His blood and cytogenesis was drawn exactly a week a go today. He just had his second pill of 100 mg amoxicillin this morning. We have also given him approximated 150 mL subQ over the last week. I have no doubt that he has a UTI/CRF he has been drinking and peeing a lot more. I think he also has some nausea because his appetite is less and he tends to lick his lips more. I am just concerned at how the numbers fall and wonder if he should be tested for GI bleed/ mass. He has a history of mod-severe IBD. Or do these numbers correspond to CRF with UTI? More than anything I don't want to be wasting time if we should be doing some more tests. My vet is open today so I could probably get him if needed.Here are his values that either fall outside or are just on the cusp for the lab's ranges:

Good afternoon,

Can you tell me if he is on anything for his nausea just now?

Has he had black stools or blood in stool?

Was the specific gravity tested at the same time the bacteria was detected?
