Hey, does anybody have any experience with cats with UTIs? I mainly want to know how long it should take the capsule antibiotics to start having an observable effect. Gambit got diagnosed with a UTI last night and the vet said the antibiotics should show effect "very quickly". He had one dose last night and one this afternoon and still seems just as bad, and maybe a little worse (still making trips to the litter every five minutes but now he's meowing a lot while he's in there). I've got a call in to the vet just to ask, but in the meantime, do any of you know? If by "very quickly" the vet meant "two or three days" instead of "an hour or so after the first pill" then I'll calm down a lot.

(When the other cat, Jubilee, had a UTI, she got a shot of antibiotics and was acting better almost immediately, which is why I'm nervous about Gambit, but it would also make sense that the effects of the shot would be noticeable before the effects of one-a-day pills.)
