Customer Question
He was checked for...

He was checked for a urinary infection but his lab tests show that he doesn’t have an infection. He sometimes tries to pee and then jumps out of the box. He still pees but not every time. He’s been licking his penis for a few weeks and it’s bruised. The vet gave me antibiotics and he took two pills and got diarrhea. I called vet and she said to discontinue as he has no infection. They also gave me prazosin. I gave him 4 of those and in the meantime noticed that he is jumping up onto the bed or a counter and falling down. He has never done that before. I stopped that med just tonight.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. There are all sorts of infections the cat can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the cat's name and age?

Zack. 14. He also is on a hypoallergenic diet and only eats royal canine duck canned.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Zack?

Zhe has a really bad reaction to antibiotics. Diarrhea
