Hi Jacustomer,

Welcome to Just Answer. My name is Jane. I have been involved professionally with dogs in the healthcare and behavioral fields for over 20 years. I’ve worked as a Vet Assistant and Behaviorist and have extensive experience in dog reproduction, as a breeder, for even longer than that.. Canine behavioral issues and training are also my specialties. It will be my pleasure to work with you today. I'm so sorry that no other expert answered your question earlier. Your question just showed up on the list of unanswered questions that I have access to and I wanted to help. I hope you will rate my answer rather than the delay.

Two that are commonly used are cephalexin (Keflex) and Enrofloxacin (Baytril.

You can read about Keflex and dosages here:

You can read about Baytril and dosages here:

This site discusses UTI’s and various medications used for treatments.

http://www.vin.com/proceedings/Proceedings.plx?CID=WSAVA2003&PID=6538&O=Generic

You should have your dog seen by a Vet for any UTI and should not administer any prescription medication without notifying your vet first.

This site goes over a holistic approach to uti treatment.

If you have any other questions at all, please reply here and I'll be happy to follow up with you even after you have rated. .
