Teddy is excessively peeing. Noticed this and the fact he had a mucky rear end. Otherwise he is perfectly fine (have noticed a lump on his head but that is another story and am not sure if I am imagining it).
He is on antibiotics and panacur. His pee is not concentrated, if I have understood correctly and no evidence of protein - but only a surgery test on protein which I understand is not definitive.
I am concerned about kidney problems .. hoping it is an infection.
What conclusion, at this point, would you make? Does this all fit the bill for an infection? I do worry!!!
Today is day 2 of Baytril and no, specimen was not sent off for urinalysis. I think I am overthinking everything.
However, I do now think he has a lump on his head .... it is between his ears but on the top of his head. Even my husband has admitted it exists. Very strange as I had not noticed it previously but had commented to the vet that he seemed very aware if I stroked him between his ears. He licked his paws in response and shook head. The vet felt the area, along with the examination for the excessive peeing, but also did not notice it. It is very noticeable a day later though. What on earth could that be? To appear like it did - unless both the vet and I missed it
I am back at the vets on Thursday, so unless anything escalates, I shall wait till then? Otherwise, Teddy is eating, drinking and pooping as usual.
sigh ... something else to worry about!
Oh Cara, try not to worry! So day 2 of baytril is fairly early days. I am assuming his course of baytril will last until he goes back next Thursday? I would say 2/3 days to notice an improvement from abx. Put your concern on hold if you can
Regarding the lump - the vet should look at it and pronounce. Unless it gets massively bigger, or bleeds or changes in some way, then I would try and wait. At least 2/3 more days to see what happens. He's not had any injection of baytril to vaccination at all within the last few weeks?
I'm glad he's eating and drinking and pooping. No worries there
Is the skin over the lump broken at all ? I hope that Teddy still remains well within himself ?
Actually, Teddy did get his first baytril dose via injection, which was a thought of ours re lump, but the injection was in the scruff, so unlikely to have a link, I am thinking?
