I will for sure ask the vet if he knows her urine PH. If it turns out that she dose just have inflammation and not a UTI is there anything I can do for that? The purnia is kitten food and I feed her both wet and dry. I did not see DL methionine listed in that food but science diet kitten has it if I switch her over to that. It's weird because so far she has had no accidents or staring she just goes a lot. I appreciate all of your help.
DL methionine is listed. Towards the end of the ingredient list. Maybe consider taking her off of the dry food? Or switching? And she is still on the antibiotics so that means they’re doing something for her. 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽 You may not even need to change anything. You need to know the results of the urine analysis.

Thanks Xena, I talked to the vet today and he said her PH was normal at 6. We are halfway through the antibiotic but have seen on,y slight improvement. I do not know what is going on, I am wondering if her issue is cystitis where there is infolmation but no infection? I know fish can cause irratiation to the bladder but is there any other ingredients that help or hurt.do you know if spay in instance can happen in cats? my sister had a dog who after her stay could not hold her urine every one of her test and X-rays were fine. Thank you so much for the help!

Be careful buying prescription cat food. Send for free samples first. My cat werun will not touch anything prescription for her kidney disease. I tossed lots of food to the waste can.
I assume you asked if shelters need any? I am taking mine to a foster

Sometimes for dogs after a spay, it can lead to urinary incontinence but that usually happens years down the road as they age. it can happen once in a great while with young dogs and generally veterinarian just prescribe a Medication that tightens the urinary sphincter. that usually does the trick. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that happen with cats. The pH of six is slightly low but that is pretty subjective. Between six and 7.5 is pretty much what you’re looking for. So I’m gathering there was no bacteria in the urine. Were there white cells? Honestly if I were you, I would try a different dry food or I would take her off the dry food totally and see how she does. it’s easy to do and if it benefits her, that’s fantastic.

Thank you Xena, her WBC was slightly high, I believe that could also mean infolmation. DoseThe dry food harm her even though I feed her the wet food with it? Thanks everyone for the help.

Your kitten is too young to be on adult food. Please stick with a food formulated for kittens. And if I were you, I would stick with main stream foods for now. Iams or the like. You can try to experiment with other foods when you get this issue resolved. That would be my advice.

Your kitten is young but if you compare nutrition for adult and kitten, the calories,fat,and protein are the same except she will eat more. Nutro perfect portions is for adult and kitten. I have an 8 yr old tall long and skinny that eats twice the amount as my other adult cats. She eats like a kitten. One of their foods is for kittens. Same fat,protein and calories
I rescued Peaches 5 weeks old and fed her wellness core canned chicken mostly. Now she throws it up so be sure she eats different proteins
What does your vet say?

Months 3-4: Baby teeth start to fall out and are replaced by adult teeth; this process is usually complete by 6 months of age. There are some kittens who are not very active

Months 4-9: Kittens go through sexual maturation.

Months 9-12: A kitten is almost fully grown.

1 year+: Kittens are just reaching adulthood.

2 years+: Kittens are socially and behaviorally mature.
