If you recall, Josie’s recent trip to the office was because she needed a have a sterile urine sample taken. The vet had the lab do a culture and sensitivity done on it. This is all because her last urine sample had some protein in it. There are two possible reasons: a UTI or kidney problems.
The results of the culture are back. Nothing grew. That rules out a UTI.
For right now, the oncologist is fine with waiting until her next visit to do additional protein related tests to make sure her kidneys are okay.
I did ask if there was anything I should watch for: increased drinking and urination.
I gently pointed out she already had that due to the prednisone, but I’ll keep an eye out incase it gets worse.
Oh the joys of having a senior dog.
