I have 2 westie pups 13 weeks old, Russ and Oscar. I collected

Customer Question

Hi, i have 2 westie pups 13 weeks old, Russ and Oscar. I collected them at 10 weeks. The following day after collection I had their 1st injections and examined by my local vet surgery. A few days later I noticed white milky spots in Russ's urine and called the surgery. They suggested I bring the him down and they would check him over. After taking his temperature it was decided a course of antibiotics and an injection. His temp was higher than normal and he didn't have the same energy level. 24 hours he was back to normal. The day before I was due to get their 2nd injection I noticed similar in Oscar's urine. As I was visiting the vet the next day I decided I would mention it then. This was a different vet from the last one who treated Russ on this visit. After explaining that Oscar had now developed the same symptoms I was surprised by his reply. "I have been a vet for over 20 years and never seen white milky spots in a pups urine." He suggested the injections were more important at this point and suggested I keep an eye on him. I haven't noticed white in his urine since and he seems perfectly healthy. This morning I noticed that the white substance had reappeared in Russ's urine and there was quite a lot. I have taken a picture of this and can forward it to you.
JA: IÂ’m sorry to hear that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about The?
Customer: No, I am just a little concerned there is some form of infection.
