Whom It May Concern:
I have a 10-month old basset hound
, Gracie, and we ended up at the emergency vet last night where she was diagnosed with a UTI.
Saturday I noticed she was licking
her "lady parts" and had a slight increase in ruination then and some yesterday; however, last night she was having to go every couple of hours, which prompted the visit to the emergency clinic. She was eating, drinking, and playing normally.
The emergency clinic took an X-ray and said it was normal, and performed a urinalysis which they said confirmed the UTI. My major concern is that no blood work was taken to rule out kidney failure, which is what my research of the symptoms keeps pulling up.
What shoukd I do? She ate her breakfast (soft food I/D and pumpkin) this morning but did not want her milk bOne
; however, she did want the jerky treat. She also seemed a bit tired, but I'm assuming that's from the injections she received--an antibiotic and anti inflammatory.
Gracie is the last present from my now deceased mother.
