Well, Akina has had chronic urinary tract infections as well as two different types of crystals for the past year or two. We took her to a new vet today after our regular vet said that she would need to be on Hill's C/D for the rest of her life. Sorry, but I'm just not ok with that and I wanted another opinion. So, we saw the new vet, who we both really liked, and she referred us to a specialist because she needs a vulvoplasty. She totally agreed with us that Hill's is junk and actually said, "Please do not feed that to her." lol. The new vet talked to us for over an hour and gave her a very thorough examination. I guess the next step is to see the specialist and go from there. I'm really sad that she most likely has to undergo surgery, but if it fixes it then that is what's best. Unfortunately, it is definitely going to cost a lot of money, which we really just don't have. I kind of have no idea what we're going to do. I'm pretty stressed about this, but hopefully everything will work out for the best!
