Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

Since Taz did get treatment last night, the antibiotic should have taken effect by now. My concern for your sweet guy is that if he is blocked with crystals and cannot urinate, this could be come a life threatening situation. Make sure that his bladder is empty....if it feels large and hard, then he may be blocked and if this is not taken care of right away, his bladder could burst and this could be fatal. Check his abdomen to see if you feel a mass the size of a softball...if so, take him back to your vet immediately. Even if you do not feel this, it is wise to have your vet check Taz to be sure he is not blocked and only has a Urinary Tract Infection which will respond to the treatment given.

Does that make sense to you?

Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.
