    Default Potty Breakthrough

    Hi All!!

    Just to come share some good news....

    Ellie has had quite a long road in the potty training dept.

    We FINALLY are on the right track, after a couple UTI's, Struvite Crystals, multiple rounds of antibiotics, a Heat Cycle, and determination from mom and dad, and Dr Charlie, Ellie is on day 11 with NO accidents in her crate OR the house AND She has started ASKING to go out when she has to potty, just the past few days, but she IS GETTING it.

    Dr Charlie did put Ellie on a supplement called Petameth, to help keep her Urine PH down, to keep her from forming crystals, as she was forming them without any infections, Ellie is doing well on it, just wondering if anyone has ever used this supplement, from the research I have done it is also called Methionine, and is safe

    Ellie is also in Potty boot camp in her crate, with NO bedding, and reduced but safe area, mommy feels HORRIBLE about her having to lay on the plastic tray, she has had success in her crate in the past with not peeing on her bedding, just wondering if might be able to re-introduce some bedding down the road??


    Thanks and much Love,

    Melissa - Ellie's Mom

    Good job Melissa! !!! One thing you might consider is example, I put ACV in Nyala's water. She probably doesn't need it cause of her h8me cook meals but it's not a bad habit .

    Good news I think you'll be able to let her have bedding in her crate eventually, but I would still wait for quite a while so she doesn't fall in to old habits

    Great news --- you MIGHT be able to reintroduce bedding, but I would wait at least a couple of months. And, if she has an accident you'll know she is just one of those dogs that can not have any bedding
