Light sensitivity is not a side effect we generally see in veterinary patients in response to amoxicillin. Can you describe her signs to me?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
She turns away, growls, and her eyes are shut even with a little light
Cat Vet: Richard Rawling,
 replied 11 months ago

What signs was she showing before she started the medication?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
She was normal.
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
No
Cat Vet: Richard Rawling,

What prompted you to seek veterinary attention? How did the vet pick up on the UTI?

Ask Your Own Cat Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
They got a sample yesterday and tested it. I took her in because she peed on my bed a few times.
Cat Vet: Richard Rawling,
 replied 11 months ago

Ok, great. How long has she been on the antibiotics for now?

The response from the Expert literally saved my cat's life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart -- I will recommend all of my friends to you!!!

LuciaRincon, Georgia

I will use your service again. I was very pleased with the response and the fact that you have a low cost option so that those of us on fixed income can have questions answered. I will also recommend you to others.

KarenJackson Heights, NY

You helped us to come to what we believe is a better next step in Jack's treatment, and hopefully have saved us $800!! Thanks again!

Jack's MomTuscon, AZ

The vet said that the information and my following it will be what made the difference. Thanks again for being so very helpful.

TracyGrayson, LA

My oldest male cat had a seizure this evening. This site was the first place I could think of to go after the seizure had passed. Dr. Lucy was fantastic and she was spot on!

DebbieUSA

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Alice H.Jacksonville, Fl.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
