My 18 week old basset has another possible UTI. She is
My 18 week old basset has another possible UTI. She is urinating clear, odorless urine, very often. This is the third time this has happened in her short life. I just read something online that probiotics can cause UTIs. Is that true? Our vet prescribed probiotics when Ladybird was on antibiotics for the possible UTIs, and I've just kept up with them since I thought they would be helpful. Should I stop the probiotics? We have a vet appointment in the morning to diagnose her issue, I just want a second opinion.

My 8 year old standard poodle (spayed) has had a discharge
My 8 year old standard poodle (spayed) has had a discharge from the vulva twice so far. She had a 10 day course of antibiotic and then they said she has crystals in her urine. They said I had to feed her Hills Science Diet Urinary Care S/D for a month to get rid of the crystals. Here in Canada this will cost me $225.00 for the month as well as 2 vet visits and 2 antibiotic treatments. She discharged again after the first antibiotic so now she is on amoxicillin. I love my dog, but I am a senior on a fixed income and this blows my budget. Is there an alternate method to treat my dog.?
My dog was in a dog fight and had a puncture wound in her
My dog was in a dog fight and had a puncture wound in her back leg. After a day of limping and being in obvious pain, I gave my twenty lb Jack Russell a dropper of Tylenol. She was eating some and drinking, but wouldn't walk. I gave her another dose the next day. On Friday, Lexie was boarded at the vets for the weekend. I was told she spiked a 103 temp and vomited, eating almost nothing the entire weekend. She was given a pain med & an antibiotic over the weekend. She won't eat, drink, or use the bathroom. Help!
She has 2 hot spots I'm guessing it's from an allergic
she has 2 hot spots I'm guessing it's from an allergic reaction to the fantastic cleaner I used to clean her crate because that's the only new thing that she has been introduced to. She will go and lay in there before it drys and then I have to run her out and close the door. It's not painful too her or itching.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name and age?Customer: Lucky and 2 yrsJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Lucky?Customer: no

My 5 yr old cockapoo was diagnosed last week with acute
My 5 yr old cockapoo was diagnosed last week with acute kidney failure after several bouts of vomiting and decreased appetite. He had 3 days of ivf and his discharge bun was 149 now 100 and crest was 6+ and is now 5. He is on amoxicillin, 5 mg Pepcid and reglan1/2 tab twice a day. He is drinking well and peeing well but is now refusing to eat for the last 24 hrs. Would he benefit from Prilosec to help with appetite?

I board dogs at my home through DogVacay and just found out
Hi I board dogs at my home through DogVacay and just found out one of ,y guests was prescribed metronidazole 250mg2xdaily for 10 days along with endows orb. The pet parent told me that his vet prescribed these because he has diarrhea due to stress -I took his word and just looked at the Meds and am freaking out to read that it is for parasites and bacterial infections. How worried should I be that he has interacted and shared water bowls with my healthy guests
