Hello everyone! I need some advice about my 2-year old ragdoll boy, Apollo. Since August, he has had 3 bouts of what the vet described as cystitis. The only symptom that I could observe was tinted urine (I could see it on his fur after he’s been to the litter box). No signs of pain or discomfort, no loss of appetite, no hiding -he was normal. He’s on Royal Canin Urinary Care wet food, which is not a prescription diet per se but supposedly helps with urinary health. He also has a few biscuits of the same brand and line here and there, but mostly wet food. Also 2 Cystease capsules a day, which I will reduce to 1 eventually. Last week I booked him in for a full investigation, which included x-ray and ultrasound and cystocentesis (taking urine from his bladder with a syringe). Everything came back normal, no stones or crystals, no protein in his urine, no structural abnormalities. However, the vet said his urine was dilute, which may indicate kidney disease. She asked me to bring him back in for blood tests, but not urgently -within the next couple of months. So now I’m just going crazy that he has something seriously wrong with him. The vet was reassuring and said it’s just another box we have to tick before finalising the idiopathic cystitis diagnosis. He does not drink excessively, he’s not dehydrated and he doesn’t seem to be in any pain. But I’m so worried. I’ll give him a couple of weeks to recover from the trauma of being at the vets all day for tests and take him in again for a blood test. Has anyone had similar experience? Is the dilute urine a bad thing? Thank you for reading and for your understanding… Crazy cat mum here!
