Possible UTI?

Postby I<3mypit » Sat Oct 22, 2011 4:20 pm

So I have noticed that Dixie has been pee'ing ALOT lately, but in very small amounts and sometimes just dribbles. She is ringing the bell constantly to go outside and sometimes she doesn't even make it to the door before she will squat. I mean I realize she is only less than 2 months old but I am thinking there is a problem.

Is there anything I can do until I can get her to the vet? Is cranberry safe for dogs and can it be used for UTI's?

Female puppies even at that age can suffer from a UTI. Have a urinalysis done to be sure. If there's an infection, she needs antibiotics, not just cranberry extract.

Well I decided not to wait and paid the emergency visit so she could be seen. They prescribed her Clavamox. My poor girl :(
