Oops, I forgot to add that this is a dog. She's a cross-breed that is partial labrador so she's a fairly large dog. That's why I am unable to roll her over and get her to stay while I check. She hates the spray; I think it stings, and i think it's made her wary of baring her stomach to me.
How much cranberry juice would be appropriate for a 50-60 pound dog, and how I do keep it such that the other dogs in the house won't drink it? Will she maybe take it directly from the spoon? Or should I try and mix it into a dish with water? Thank you.
Thank you. I had been concerned it was a UTI, because while i'm not very familiar with hot spots, it seems to be in the general vulva area, and I didn't feel that would necessarily be an area of a hot spot.Or, at the very least, I suspected the area, plus the redness, plus the urinating on the carpet would make it fairly likely to be a UTI.
I should add that she has been doing a fair amount of licking to the area, plus scratching with her hind foot. I suspect that is why her owner is attributing the issue to a hot spot, combined with Separation Anxiety causing the urination in the house.
Of course, my main concern is getting the dog the care that she needs and something like a UTI seems to be a fairly urgent concern.
