Customer Question
My 12 year old...

My 12 year old Bassett hound has had a bladder infection for over 2 months. He has not responded. My vet put him on enrofloxacin. I gave him 2 1/2 tablets this morning per vet's instructions. The pills are 136 mg. Although he has had accidents occasionally urinating in the house since he got the uti he has not been incontinent. About 2 hours after taking the enrofloxacin he was laying down and urinated all over. He did it again about an hour later. Could the meds cause this behavior?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name?

Louis

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Louis?

Louis takes phenabarb and vetprofen. He has glaucoma in an eye and take 4 different kinds of drops daily. He refused to eat a treat a few minutes ago. Definitely a change in his behavior.
