Hi

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

We are not allowed to prescribe on this site

But what makes you think it is an infection?

Is he neutered?

If you can't call in or outherwise get a persciption for him you can't help me. Thanks
Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 4 months ago

He is drinking more water. That is why he is peeing so much

He does not have a UTI necessarily

He needs to have bis blood and urine tested
