Robin, I am sorry to hear he has an infection. It is not unusual for male cats to get blockages, and get infections. If you have known and used your vet for a reasonable time, I would trust what is being prescribed. If you are unsure that the meds are the right ones for him, call your vet and ask why that particular antibiotic is being used. Be aware it can take a couple of weeks for the infection to clear up as well. If the symptoms are not improving within a week, or if Buddy gets worse, call your vet right away.

Also, what sort of food do you have him on? Your vet should have suggested or even prescribed specific foods for Buddy, to help keep his urinary blockage from coming back. If he is not on the proper foods, he can actually get blockages more often, and can get infections as well.

Do keep us posted on how Buddy is doing.

Hi Robin,

So sorry to read about Buddy. Here's some information on FLUTD (Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease).

Here's some info about the medication you have. It appears it's used in Canada and the UK.

As RhainyC mentioned, did the vet recommend any special food?

I hope he's feeling better soon.

Newt
