    Thanks, I wanted to get this out there because so many treat it once only and it comes right back a week later.

    Reoccurring UTI is so very common, but usually it's because the first one was never completely gone to begin with. If the bacteria is not completely gone, it just brings you back to the beginning. It can be very frustrating, especially on your wallet!

    Thanks for that info. Just wondering....is the only sign odour in the urine? I must admit, I have never smelt their pee. Now that we have Gidget (female) who is now 5 months old, should I be smelling her urine?

    Frequent peeing. Like constantly squatting to pee but not peeing much. Blood in the urine too. I will add this info to the article, thank you for asking.

    Thanks Lisa. I also learned from Rissi that the urine can have phophate crystal in their urine, which are remnants of the UTI. The vets first suggested action was to order prescription food and when I said no, other homeopathic suggestions were suggested.

    She is doing great!! Instrusive and attention hogging as over. But the UTI sx are gone, the UA (-) and I am giving her cranberry to keep her system in balance!! It is crazy how fast it all occurred with increased accidents on the floor, urine hesitancy (probably from bladder spasms making her feel like she had to go) and increased frequency. The poor baby!!


    I'm a good girl, I promise
