How much does your dog weigh? Do you have any of these:

Antibiotics (list name and milligram strength)

Aspirin

Tramadol

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
She might weigh 5lb maybe. I do have aspirin and tramadol. Bella is on pain medication called Galliorant
Expert:  Dr. Ann M. replied 10 days ago.

Okay, great. The galliprant will take care of the pain associated with the UTI. Do you not have any antibiotics?

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
Aspirin is325mg no antibiotics.
Customer: replied 10 days ago.
The vet had given her an antibiotic for her teeth. But I don't have anymore.
Expert:  Dr. Ann M. replied 10 days ago.

Okay. You cannot give aspirin when the dog is already on Galliprant. So, you don't have many options if you don't have any antibiotics. Your best bet is to keep giving the Galliprant and go to the pet store and buy some cranberry tablets for dogs... it can acidify the urine and help the UTI resolve without antibiotics. You would give them based on the label recommendations. Or, see your vet for antibiotics. But I would try the cranberry tablets first. Good luck!
