Have Dog Health Questions? Ask a Dog Vet Online.
Yes, she has had chronic UTI's and has been on a prophylactic dose of anitbiotics for some time. She has now developed achalasia and can no longer swallow the pills with ease. We have tried crushing them but she recognizes the powder and will not eat it. The achalasia has caused her to vomit and urinate. She is becoming increasingly incontinent and her urine now has a rather foul odor. My own vet utilizes holistic remedies and I called him today but he is not available until late tomorrow. I learned about uva ursi from my sister who has a lab with a similar problem and swears by it. Frankly, our dog is likely on her last legs. She has been a wonderful pet to us for so long and I want to do whatever I can to alleviate her issues as soon as I can.
Many thanks for your help.
