I am sure you have checked out many things, so please don't be upset with me for mentioning the following. Also, I can't remember all of the tests you might have done. I am not trying to hijack this thread, just feel the need to share our experience and hope you don't mind too much. Did you do a guided ultrasound culture and sensitivity test? My boy had an infection that was never found with a free catch, but was found by a needle draw. We took care of this infection, but he still has waxing and waning polydipsia/polyurea (sp?). He does have a medical condition causing him to have periodic drinking/peeing episodes, but we couldn't find the cause. It could be cushings, but unconfirmed, it could be caused by tick bites (but two different panels to two different places came back negative), it could be a kidney issue caused from chronic pancreatitis. But it is medical. One odd thing that I have noticed is now he is much more likely to 'excitement' pee than before, and he also leaks sometimes. He just can't hold it like he used to, and when he does pee in the house, it is only when I am gone.
I'm not saying that Django's issues aren't behavioural.....I'm just throwing out that it could still be medical even if a free catch urine sample came back fine. Having said all that, I do hope it is behavioural and not something long term and that you can fix it.
I will be very interested in your meeting and I hope you share with us what you are taught as this will be good general information to know.
