Does wet dog food help with Uti? My dog has been switched

Does wet dog food help with Uti? My dog has been switched recently to a prescription diet for gi issues.. We have just gotten over another infection. She is a great example of " most dogs surviving parvo live a compleatly normal life but rarely....." We have been to the vets at least twice a year for UTIs, liver and kidney infections. Shes only 4 1/2. Switching to all dry would save a ton of money but, If there is a chance that it might save her pain, it wouldnt be worth it. Does the water content in wet food help at all?

11 week old Javanese is lethargic with a slightly elevated

11 week old Javanese is lethargic with a slightly elevated heart rate. He came to us 3 days ago and I immediately started slowly changing his food from purina puppy chow to blue buffalo small dog kibble. I've only given him a little bit of it so far though but his stool is slightly runny. This may or may not be connected, obviously, but I mention it in case.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?Customer: GeorgeJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about George?Customer: Nothing I can think of. He was lively and well until this morning.
