I am not paranoid but all the Vets in this city seem to be on-line, all charge the same. Our last rescue boy (Bichon) was seizing and the meds wouldn't stop or reduce them. We took him to an emerg. Vet at 10:00pm and they said we had to get him at 8:00am charge was $600.00. Took him home sat with him all night and later had to give him up in my arms to the "Big Sky"
I have tears as I write this thinking about him.
I'll keep you advised about this little girl.
Thanks again
That's robbery $600 for an after hour visit. Mine charges $60 that makes me so sad when these vets are just trying to soak the people who love there pets. Sad, Sad, Sad

Cranberries and blueberries are good for the urinary tract. =] I've always used these treats by Nutro that have blueberries and cranberries in them.

Don't know what to do

Again thanks to so many of you and your support. I will try the cranberry etc..
To-day she seems somewhat better. I am wondering if the medicatons for her ear yeast infection might have caused her to be incontinent??
We are now taking her out every two hours and she will pee but that is maybe because she feels that she must ?? No accidents lately.
It is so comforting to have strangers but of like minds and caring take the time to offer support and advice.
Many many thanks.

I know from experience that antibiotics are bad for causing other female problems. I'm not sure about dogs but maybe her meds for her ear infection may have something to do w/it.

My Elsa has had 2 UTI in the past 2 years. I include a few dried cranberries in her dog food each day and a teaspoon of yoghurt. It's been a while since she had any more problems.
Love me; Love my dog

I get pet catalogs in the mail that has natural supplements for urinary/kidney/bladder. I use them and cranberries capsules for our 13 yr od German Sheherd. I started giving them to her every day. She has never had any problems yet. I wouldn't restrict water. That will make things worse. The kidneys and bladder needs to be flushed. Nupro has good supplements for dogs too.
