I use pretty liter...

I use pretty liter and she went pee twice now and it was Blue. Also I just take a look at her this morning and her gums seem to be swollen in her lower mouth. Like bulbs.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the cat's name and age?

Birdie and 4

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Birdie?

No, not that I am aware of.

Good afternoon, JACustomer.

Pretty Litter is meant to determine if the urine a cat passes is of proper pH. The blue indicates that her urine is alkaline and that she likely has a urinary tract infection. She needs an examination to see how alkaline her urine is and if there are any other abnormalities in her urine, such as blood, bacteria or crystals. The swollen gums will need to be examined by your vet, as well, as she may have periodontal disease and need a dental cleaning. A course of antibiotics for the urine and her mouth, as well, may be indicated which your vet can prescribe during her physical examination.
