Blood in Urine

My 18 year old female cat has been passing blood in her urine for over a week now.  She is on antibiotics and a steriod for 7 days and there is still a lot of blood in her urine.  At this time she is scheduled for another vet visit but I am worried.  She does not seem to have a problem with passing her urine it is a normal amount but bloody. She appears to be normal in every other respect, she does eat mostly wet food and her behavior is about normal for a cat her age as she does sleep a lot.  How long does it take for the bloody urine to stop?
Worried in Pa.

As I'm sure your vbet told you, blood in the urine indicates some sort of kidney malfunction.  The problem is what's causing it. did your vet give any indication he knows?
Be sure to ask your vet about proper dietary needs for an older cat. As kitty gets older, he goes through biological changes and its important to meet there needs. Hopefully its nothing serious.

Has your vet checked for common things like tapeworms? It seems like an obvious thing to check for but you never know Large quantities of blood in the urine are common with tapeworms, and that would be the lesser of the various evils.
