yes, she was dehydrated. No we did not test her urine. Litterbox was normal, not excessively wet. And x-rays were not an option until the bloodwork came back. Dr. mentioned the particular taint in Stink's breath was common to CRF cats.

There was a possiblity Stink got into some bad water and the source was eliminated just before I took her in. My vet is very middle of the road - there are times when aggressive testing/treatment can be more harmful then good. That day, it was best to send Stink home.

I've had a cat with IBS - we never pin pointed the source of his problem because scoping was more stress then his heart could likely take. We just had to figure it out as we went. We've opted to take a similar trial and error approach with Stink.

She has improved recently, but we need to do more trials with the food. As of yesterday, the whole house is on venison to eliminate the stress of feeding in separate rooms. (which led to fighting and vomiting) That is seriously expensive.

Coming froma family with a history of odd allergies I know its possible to chase a horse - only to discover its a zebra when you catch it. Right now I'm trying to keep an open mind as we test Stink.
