    Awe, pooooor baby. But what a doll!!! One thing that might be worth a Google is the relationship between protein and PH, specifically something called "purine" which is.....er.....something. The right levels of protein in the food (I believe higher than normal) can help dissolve uti-related crystals and acidify the PH. I think!

    After Lupe's surgery to correct the anatomical stuff, she still had crystals. I guess that in and of itself is not always a problem. As a precaution the vet put her back on (hold your breath) Hill's to balance her PH and flush out crystals. Because UTI and some kinds of crystals go hand in hand, and because crystals can be a precursers to stones--a much more complicated problem to fix-- we followed orders. Slowly over a year's time I've transitioned to half Wellness half Hills, adding coconut oil, Missing Link and pumpkin for my pumpkin. No UTis and no crystals for over a year! Good luck! I'm sure she already feels better.

    Also when she arrived, she was dripping blood when she peed. She has a really bad UTI. We put her on a course of antibiotics for a week but I can tell her urine is still very toxic even though the blood stopped the next day.

    So I am looking for suggestions on diet that would help her. I ordered a supplement but it is not here yet. She was being fed Royal Canine before, and even though I am trying to switch she is only eating the Royal Canin out

    I homecook for Molly and Tidus (hamburger,mixed beans, normandy vegetables, a smidge of rice) with NuVet, so I am wondering if this would be a good choice for her as well. I am worried about her kidney function since the pee is so toxic. I gave her some of this instead of the kibble tonight. I also have sub Q fluids I am thinking I will give her some tomorrow morning. Any other homecooked suggestions to help would be wonderful!

    Oh and here she is, Yuna's twin sister! Khloe (who has been officially nicknamed "Sweetie" because of Doctor Who) Those are her wounds right after she got here, I shaved her so I could see what it was. They are healing nicely with the aid of the antibiotics but I am worried about her pee.

    I was thinking about your Khloe this morning. How is she doing with her UTI?

    For me, her name was Abby

    Seems to be cleared up, I used all of the suggestions so we will go in about a week to have the urine tested to be sure. The home cooking really seemed to have a good impact with the tums, Nuvet, and for her water I gave a splash of watermelon juice in it, she loves it. Already spoiled rotten!

    Does she eat ice cubes? If so put some cranberry juice in the ice cube trays, freeze them, and see if you can get her to eat them. If she eats ice cubes a few of those a day will be easier to get her to take in.

    I thought I answered this? Either my tapatalk is broke or I've lost my mind... either way I'm glad she is feeling better!
