Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. There are all sorts of infections Tiffany can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Tiffany?

Is she still not eating? When did the antibiotics finish?

Did your veterinarian tell you when they wanted to recheck her urine?

She may need some topical creams or ointments to help soothe the irritation and generally antibiotics will fix the infection, but if there is enough irritation the vulva can sometimes need a little extra help to heal.

There are some therapies you can purchase on amazon.com to help as well. I will attach the links below. Both products are very good at quickly reducing inflammation.

Our dog Jordy is a 4 month old lab. I about 2 months ago I
Our dog Jordy is a 4 month old lab. I about 2 months ago I noticed urinary frequency so took her in with a urine sample (sterile cup as I work in a clinic). They did a UA and it showed WBC's, RBC's and bacteria. She was prescribed a 7 day course of Clavamox. This helped. 2 days after finishing the abx her symptoms returned and I also noticed some white/green vaginal discharge. They did a cystoscopy which showed no stones. They also collected her urine while they were in there and the UA was negative. They restarted her on a 2 week course of Clavamox. They also cultured it and e-coli grew and was susceptible to Clavamox. She still had discharge which I was wiping with baby wipes. Like clockwork, 2 days after finished the antibiotic it was back. We took her in, she was Cathed and restarted on Clavamox. I took her to a different vet and he felt the right step were being taken and we started her on a cranberry pill. The culture showed a different bacteria this time-the ver called my husband so I don't know which one, so we switched her to Simplicef for 2 weeks, which we had to increase her dose after 2 weeks due to weight gain so she was on in for 3 weeks. She finished this 2 days ago and she's incontinent today. Our vet is closed but we have an appt monday as we were supposed to have her recultured. What are your thoughts? Thank you! … read more
