So unfortunately she needs antibiotics which you probably already know. There are no home treatments that are going to help. So I am not sure if you were asking for over the counter remedies or had another question.

But Im thinking you are looking at paying for an exam and the antibiotics. The cost would depend on the area you live in. If money is super tight you could decline the urine test for now.

Some SPCA and humane societies have vets on staff and care for low income patients. I worked at one for 3 years. You can call around to the local SPCAs and see if anyone has that service.
