Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am very sorry to hear about your dog. Are you online to discuss her?
Ok. Unfortunately the Uricalm is not a safe product to use in dogs. We do not use it routinely and it can actually cause more problems for you as it can cause liver and kidney issues and dry eye in dogs.
Has your vet found bacteria in your dog's urine, or just blood? Have they discussed doing an x-ray yet?
You are welcome.
I would find out if your vet was actually seeing bacteria in your dog's urine. If so, and bacteria was still present after a week on Clavamox, I would request a urine culture to determine what the best antibiotic to treat the infection would be. If there was no evidence of bacteria in the urine, the next step would be an x-ray to check for stones in the bladder or kidneys or a tumor in the bladder.
