I would not use injectable Penicillin for a UTI, but if you are going to then I'd give it every 3 days and give 3 injections (10 days).

I would want to culture the urine to see what bug we're dealing with and also check an ultrasound or x-ray to make sure we don't have bladder stones that are predisposing her to getting recurrent infections.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
