Cat Urinary Tract Infection

(New York, usa)
I have a question regarding home remedies that are safe for cats to use. My cat is suffering from UTI which is Urinary Tract Infection. I tried what the vet recommended, which the usual antibiotics, a muscle relaxer which is usually prescribed for anti-anxiety (my cat is not anxious) The catheter and more antibiotics.
I have spent my last savings on vet bills. Anitbiotics make my cat very sick. I need a common sense and tried and proven remedy.
The vet said he found crystals and lots of bacteria. At first the cat urinated blood, and then regular urine, and then a week later one day blood followed by urine. This occurred Three time in a month. I tried the vet prescribed pet food, canned. His condition has improved but he still has UTI. I am transitioning him to the raw diet, so he is still eating canned food. I visited a naturopath and she recommended I stop all the vet medicine, and start a raw diet, probiotics, cantharsis, berberis bulgaris, and some other herbal remedies. At first it worked but now he is back to frequent urination-uti. His urin is clear it is not full of blood like the first days after visiting the clinic.
You were able to help my cat about a year ago with the flea problem, Thank- you. I hope you know of a natural remedy that is safe to use on a cat. My cat is allergic to brewer's yeast so I have heard that the apple cider vinegar is fermented with the mother yeast, so I am wondering if you know of other remedies. The vet was not sure whether he saw stones in the ureter, the tube that leads from the kidneys to the bladder, on the x-ray, it looked little stones. But the vet said the x-ray of the kidneys are not clear. All he saw that first day was that his bladder had gotten so big, because of a full bladder and the cat not being able to pee. That was then but now he is better but he still has UTI.
I hope you can help me, I know many have cured their cats of this terrible and painful disease. I know prevention is the best thing to do but meanwhile I would like to save my cat.
I look forward to hearing from you.
