Customer Question
Hi, my female spayed...

Hi, my female spayed dog was diagnosed with a UTI. She has been on a broad spectrum penicillian based antibiotic for 5 days. She is felling better but has started vomiting and nausea about 4 hours after being medicated. I was just researching is cephalexin may be a good alternative or if she may have the same reaction. This has happened before with penn based meds.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?

No, normal diet

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. The Expert will know what to do. What is the dog's name?

Polly

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

7yr old labradoodle recessed vulva has had sensitvity to penn before no other meds except daily joint supp

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
