Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
There is a good chance that your gal has a Urinary Tract Infection. These are typical signs for this condition. This will require antibiotics from your vet but over the weekend, it will help to give your gal Methigel, a dose every 8 hrs. This is a urinary acidifier that will put the urine in an acid state that does not allow the bacteria to grow. This is available at the pet store. Unfortunately, this is not curative without antibiotics but will help her past this painful condition. Cranberry Juice can be given also as a urinary acidifier.
Your vet will run a Urinalysis to be sure that this is the correct diagnosis and treat accordingly.
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.Sincerely, ***** *****
