Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? How long has this been going on for? Was the uti diagnosed with a urinalysis?

Symptoms

Okay so you haven't seen him urinate a full stream? Other issues you may need to worry about in addition to an UTI would also be a possibility of stones in her bladder as well especially if you are not seeing a full stream of urine

If it continues with cranberry . Olive leaf and a.c. vinegar. Are these good choices?

I would continue with the cranberry. I wouldn't recommend the vinegar just in case there is a possibility that there are stones. The vinegar can change the ph of the urine which may favor one type of stone over the other.
