JA: Waiting to talk to the expert reminds me of the time I talked to an expert when I had problems with my new cats. My three cats all came from a rescue mission and were scrawny scared little creatures when I got them. Who could ever be mean to a cat?

Bo's dysuria (difficulty urinating) is a clue that either infection has returned and/or calculi (stones) are present. She'll need another urinalysis performed and this time a bacterial culture and sensitivity of her urine as well and X-rays or ultrasound of her urinary tract should be performed looking for calculi. Diethylstilbesterol shouldn't be administered until it has been confirmed that infection is nonexistent and calculi aren't present. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
