Customer Question
UTI. He's been on...

UTI. He's been on antibiotics twice and has had blood work and an xray which came back showing no issues. Thinking about changing his dry dog food to another brand and looking into a home remedy.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the dog's name and age?

Remy is 7.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Remy?

No. Otherwise he's in good health.

Can you tell me what condition Remy originally suffered?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Just the urinary tract infection.
Dog Veterinarian: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 6 months ago

Have urinalysis been run each time he's had a UTI?

What food is being fed currently?

Have you considered switching to a homemade diet, one focused on preventing urinary problems in dogs?
