Hi! Almost 2 years ago, I adopted a then 7 year old cat named Conrad. Little did I know he would become my Emotional Support Animal and we would end up saving each other. He had been born in and returned to the same Humane Society 8 or 9 times due to various reasons; the main being “inappropriate urination.” Upon bringing him home, he immediately made himself comfortable and never had any health-related issues...until a few months ago.
Conrad began urinating on plastic bags or coats every so often. One month ago, I found blood in his urine. The vets determined he had a Urinary Tract Infection as well as Bladder Crystals, and advised that I change his diet. I changed his diet and for a week or so that was working. Then, he began urinating on bags and coats again, as well as my shower curtain and rugs, etc. I was at a loss of what to do.
On December 9th, Conrad stopped eating, drinking, peeing and pooping. I brought Conrad into the vet on Friday, December 11 and he has been receiving care from them since then. He has gotten blood work, a urinary analysis, they’ve pushed fluids, and ran different tests to figure out what’s wrong. The urinary problems relate back to when he was a baby. Has he been suffering for 8 years and not receiving any relief? The next steps we will take are unknown, but we will definitely be changing his diet to medical grade food once again.
Unfortunately, with spending 6 nights in the hospital, and being tested and treated, Conrad’smedical bills are beyond what I can afford. I need help. As mentioned earlier, Conrad is my ESA and I have truly realized, especially within the past 6 days, the affect he has on me and how much he helps with my anxiety. Any help you can provide us is greatly appreciated during this tough time.
