Hello Kathy, I'm Dr. Deb.

I recently came online and see that your question about Freedy hasn't been answered. I'm so sorry that you've had to wait for a response,but if you still need assistance, I'd like to help if I can.

I do have a few questions to ask first, if you don't mind:

1. I'm assuming that his dosage of medication hasn't changed, is this correct?
2. Any other signs such as confusion or staring off in to space?
3. Is he also defecating in the house or it's only urine that is involved?
4. Has a urinalysis been checked on him recently?
5. Any difficulty with his back legs such that he has trouble standing?
6. What breed is he?

Since it looks as if you are currently offline, there may be a delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you and I may be offline at the time you respond. But I'll get back to you as soon as I can since I'm on the computer some part of every day.

Thanks for your patience. Deb
