Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.

In regards ***** ***** question, I am concerned to hear about Bunny's lack of treatment response. This isn't normal and we'd be concerned that either the bacteria present isn't sensitive to the Baytril or that there is another issue present as well (ie bladder stones, crystals in the urine, or even a tumor if she is older). With this all in mind, we'd want to consider a recheck with her vet. Ideally, we'd want them to take a sterile urine sample for culture to tell us what bacteria is present and what drugs it is vulnerable to. As well, if those other issues are a concern, then urinalysis will help check for crystals or tumor cells but we could also have them scan her bladder with their ultrasound to check for those as well as bladder stones. Finally, if they have not already, we'd want Bunny on an anti-inflammatory. That way we can reduce inflammation in the bladder and her discomfort which should reduce her accidents and may reduce the bleeding as well as we get this properly addressed for her.

Please take care,

Dr. B.
