Hi, i`m Richard, a Veterinarian from the UK. Hopefully I can help today.

Expert:  Richard Rawling replied 1 month ago.

Light sensitivity is not a side effect we generally see in veterinary patients in response to amoxicillin. Can you describe her signs to me?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
She turns away, growls, and her eyes are shut even with a little light
Expert:  Richard Rawling replied 1 month ago.

What signs was she showing before she started the medication?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
She was normal.

No
Expert:  Richard Rawling replied 1 month ago.

What prompted you to seek veterinary attention? How did the vet pick up on the UTI?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
They got a sample yesterday and tested it. I took her in because she peed on my bed a few times.
Expert:  Richard Rawling replied 1 month ago.

Ok, great. How long has she been on the antibiotics for now?
