Hey everyone- I was just wondering if anyone else's female has ever had a bladder infection? I noticed Modena trying to urinate friday afternoon, and after about 20 times of nothing happening I called the vet. The vet said that due to the fact that it was 4:15 (and they closed at 6) and that she probably didn't have anything in her bladder they wouldn't be able to get a sample to test it, and that I would have to come in on Saturday. I am thinking that I may not be going back to them anytime soon- that was the last string for me. Time to find a new vet.
Well needless to say I was not going to make her wait until morning.....I wasn't sure how much discomfort she was having. I ended up taking her to teh Emergency Vet, and they got the sample (which the vet said that they wouldn't be able to do) because I did get her to drink a bowl of water before we left the house. They told me that bladder infections were common in females.....but I had a female dog growing up and she never had one. They also told me that if it doesn't clear up that there may be a need to x-ray and see if there are any bladder stones in there. So she is taking Amoxicillin (sp?) and I am hoping that she will be better after this.
I wasn't ready for another $275 bill after that root canal bill
Does anyone else have similar issues- or any helpful info for me?
