Hello, and welcome to JustAnswer. I'm Dr. Barbara and will be happy to help you and your little girl out today.

First, I do have some questions for you so I can get a better idea of her situation: How long has she had this recurring UTI and what do you use to treat it? What breed is your girl. . .and what is her name? Has she had any further diagnostics done ever (like x rays, ultrasound, complete blood profile, urine culture)? Also, how old is she?
