HI Everyone Well, Aurora continues to do great OTJ - I continue to check her weekly on Sunday's though I seem to have gotten lazy with my spreadsheet but I keep a paper in the kitchen drawer and she is usually always in the 60-70 range. Last week she had a very odd episode. I was getting their breakfast ready and she went to the living room and laid on the fireplace marble. Her left side was rising and lowering quickly and she opened her mouth for a brief second. I thought she was going to pass a hairball so I ran and got some papertowel but she just continued to have that rapid breathing or heart rate, I'm not sure what was going up and down so fast. She moved under the coffee table and stayed there for about 20 minutes but then came out and went to the basement and wanted to play string and then she came up and ate and she was acting normal for the rest of the day. We wondered if maybe her blood glucose dropped too low so we gave her a can of fancy feast with gravy and that really seemed to pep her up. The next day Friday we gave her another can. Well, I guess that was too rich her her (the vet strongly feels she has IBS ) and that triggered the runs. I noticed on Monday this week that there weren't any of her pees in the litter box. I continued to watch her and Monday night she was on the basement area rug and was being weird so I quickly ran for some papertowel and caught the pee just in time. We lifted up the rug to find about 3-4 other spots. Thankfully I had some natures miracle ( Which BTW I don't think works very well at all, I can still smell it in the rug ). Took her to the vet yesterday - ran a full blood work up with thyroid, did an x ray to check her chest, and a urine sample to send for culture. The blood work was all completely normal including her glucose. Side note, the vet is really pressuring me to get the alpha track monitor and strips because she just doesn't understand the human #'s. I told her I refuse to pay the cost of the alpha meter strips...not sure how to convince her that what I'm doing is fine Anyways, her urine appeared to be cloudy and she gave her a convenia injection and sent us home. She slept most of the day/early evening but when she got up she did use the litter box. I have those blink XT security cameras and set one up over looking the rug she's peeing on and sure enough at 4am she peed on the rug again. Ugh. She seems really weird, going all over and her tail is wagging back and forth. Drinking quite a bit of water despite blood work being all normal including thyroid results. She has been drinking lots of water for months now...... I'm torn on the rug - part of me says remove it completely but then I have more of those same shaggy area rugs from Costco so I feel she will just pick another to make her toilet. Should I just keep the current rug and keep cleaning that? Urine culture won't be back until at least Friday or Saturday. Perhaps the strain of bacteria isn't responding to the convenia? I sanitized the litter box in the basement so it's fresh with all new litter. I also put a spare litter box right beside the rug she's peeing on and she did use that a couple times but also went on the rug as well. Her eyes are big.... I'm at a loss. I'm exhausted too. Just looking for some words of advice on how to handle this and if I'm missing something with this water drinking....could she just be super stressed and need an anti anxiety med? Thanks everyone! I'm going to bed but I"ll check for responses in the AM.
