    Default Please Help!! Infection?

    My 10 week old bulldog has started to urinate constantly!!! about every 2-5 minutes. Sometimes its a full urination and sometimes its only a drop. Sometimes she tries and I don't see anything at all. Could this be a UTI??? are there any home remedies or is this a trip to the vet?? Please advise.

    This certainly does sound like a UTI. No home remedy-this pup needs to go to the vet, and get proper treatment. It is not uncommon for a young pup to get a UTI. Need meds from the Dr.

    No wish you scare you put a UTI can quickly kill a dg if left untreated.

    i would bring her to the emergency vet. There should be one around you possibly google one? If it is a UTI you should treat it immediately. And agreed that only a vet can prescribe meds for it. And she is still a baby so I cant even imagine how she feels right now :[. Please keep us posted!

    I got her into vet Monday but they were unable to get urine sample but went ahead and started her on antibiotics. ..Thursday morning she started urinating blood took her back to vet did urinalysis and also xray to rule out stones. She has severe UTI and doubled up on antibiotics, seems there's still not much improvement. So frustrating, hoping for improvement soon!

    Hi, I just read your thread, and was going to say I totally agree with Lynn and others that she needed to see your vet, and get treatment for a UTI, as frequent urination and peeing only a drop are definitely a sign for UTI's. I'm so glad that she is getting antibiotic treatment, and hope she feels better soon. Once the UTI is cleared up, there are a few preventative things you can do to help prevent future UTI's. We give our two guys cranberry pills as a preventative measure, I buy the pills at the health food store and we break open the capsule and sprinkle the cranberry powder on the kibble everyday. Cranberry is known to prevent UTIs. You can also add 1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar to the drinking water everyday, there are a lot of benefits to ACV, such as it kills the bad bacteria in the body, so it boosts the immune system, which will help to fight infections, and it balances the Ph levels in the blood. You can also use a unscented baby wipe to clean her lady parts to help her avoid infections, especially if she tends to touch the ground when she crouches down to pee. Maybe she is getting dirt in this area.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    Monica has has you covered with what to do.... I was thinking the same thing, as my girl pretty much sits on the ground when going. I wipe her girl after each potty to help avoid dirt getting I there. Also, Banks as a pup had way too much skin in the area which cause constant UTI... our vet waited a while, I have to look it up to see when she had the surgery (she is almost 9 so memory is struggling), but we had to have some of the skin/tissue removed to help eliminate the UTIs. It is called a vulvaplasty, actual somewhat common in other breeds (according to my vet) and after that procedue, she has only had one UTI which was just last year
