This information is important in determining the prognosis and severity of the scoliosis. Who first noted the problem? What is the patient’s prenatal history? Did the child experience any problems while still in his or her mother’s womb? Was there anything unusual about the pregnancy? Did the patient meet normal developmental milestones? Is there a family history of scoliosis or other spinal problems?

You are 20 percent more likely to develop scoliosis if someone in your family also has scoliosis. Is the patient experiencing any back pain? Generally speaking, scoliosis in children and adolescents is not painful. If pain exists, further tests should be conducted for tumors, herniated discs or other abnormalities. The doctor may also conduct exams to test reflexes, motor and sensory functions, and breathing ability. After a diagnosis is made, your doctor will suggest a treatment plan.

This stubborn problem requires detailed cleaning and a few good habits. Make sure you have the necessary supplies on hand and always be prepared for any surprises your cat has in store for you. Blot the urine on your carpet with paper towels.

Try to remove as much of the urine as possible. This will ultimately make your job easier. Use clean paper towels and apply pressure. Repeat with new paper towels until you are unable to soak up any more urine. Skip this step if the urine has already dried. You can also use old throw away towels instead of paper ones. The thickness of regular towels allows for better absorption, soaking up more cat urine. If available, use a white towel. Once there’s no longer a yellow-tint to the liquid being absorbed, you’ll know all the urine has been absorbed. Enzymatic cleaners, like Nature’s Miracle, contain special biological enzymes that break down the proteins in urine, reducing or even completely eliminating the smell. Note that some enzymatic cleaners may not work if other chemicals were used beforehand to try to treat the stain. It is generally a good idea to try the enzymatic cleaner first, and saturate the area well. Follow the manufacturer’s directions closely and allow to dry for several days.
