    Default New & excited OEB owner

    My name is Betty (husband Jon), we have the newest joy in our life Cleo. She is such a character, she has brought us a great deal of happiness in just the few months we've had her. Sometimes at my work things can get very sad and she has kept depression from slipping in to my life. I have lots of questions and am reading as much as I can. My biggest thing is Cleo has had a UTI for 3 months, there is always some reason it is not cleared up. So my next thing is I need a real vet! One that can help with this problem and not keep guessing while costing me an obsorbinate amount of money for the same problem. Plus 3 months worth of antibiotics, not good. Any advise or recommendations will be greatly appreciated. I want to take her to the dog park and since she still doesn't have all her shots I cannot.

    Welcome to you and Cleo! We love pictures here!!!

    The only experience I've had with UTI is in a rescue Red Heeler. It took months to get her over it--like 3 or 4 months anyway!

    Are you taking her back as soon as she has finished with a course of antibiotics to the vet and having her urine tested again?

    Example: 10 days of antibiotics, 11th day (urinalysis)

    If urine still contains ANY bad bacteria, repeat above steps.

    Ask your vet for a human prescription, it will save you a ton of $$$$.

    This is what I did with Khloe, first we did cephalexin, then her urine came back not clear. Then I asked for Baytril, which is high powered. 10 day coarse. Almost all clear but still traces of bacteria. Well at this point I asked for a script because we had already spent $300-$400. So they prescribed her Cipro 7 days. Was like $15 or less.

    It is highly important to get the urine check immediately. Do not wait 2 weeks for it to come back, then you have to start all over again.

    There is also other things to add to help clear and prevent future occurrences. Cranberry pills, lots of fluids, (I gave watermelon as treats too), add water to her food, Ice cubes, ect.

    I also used a supplement let me find the link and ill give it to you. Khloe was brought to me gushing red blood like she was in heat her UTI was so bad. .

    My vet explained UTI like this. The bacteria reproduces quickly, so even if they seem better, they probably are not. It is important not to miss any doses of the antibiotics, and to finish every last pill. If even just two bacteria are left behind, they will regrow.

    @desertskybulldogs has given you some excellent advise and hope your baby gets better soon. Having a good bully vet is very important, as all vets may not understand the breed as they should.
    Have a Great Bully Day.

    I can't add to the great advice desertskybulldogs has given you on UTIs. Bella had one when she was in heat, but that luckily cleared up quite fast with just one coarse of antibiotics!!

    She does seem to squat down quite low when she pees though which I think could be a problem in the future so I'm giving her the cranberry pills too just in case.

    Now where are those pics ..............?????
