    Hope Stiggy feels better soon and you guys find out what it is. Could it be something like urinary stones? I don't know how common this is in dogs, but my friend's cat had the same symptoms as Stig and it was urinary stones.

    So we're finally back from the vets. His urine this morning looked normal, which is good, but from tests, there was still some blood in it. After describing to the vet that everything else about him is normal and checking Stiggy over, he believes it's a uti and gave us 5 days worth of antibiotics to combat the bad bacteria. He's a holistic vet too, and gave us meds to cleanse out his flora and probiotics to balance out the antibiotics. He wants another sample done next weekend to make sure that Stig's in the clear. If he's not, then that's when they'll do x-rays and more testing. He mentioned that it's common for dogs, both female and male, to get random bouts of uti. Our mission after he gets better is to do some preventative care. I'm thinking more frequent probiotics and supplements.

    Right when we exited the building, Stig did a long normal pee, which was so good considering he's only been able to produce short ones since last night. Both Punkin and Stig are passed out from the long morning adventure ... and from all the freeze dried treats from the vets office.

    When Mandy had a UTI my vet gave us 2 weeks on antibiotics and then herbal supplement for the bladder. He said uti can be reoccurring if you dont do a long term thorough trestment. I'm on my iPod sorry about the typos....!

    Glad to hear Stig will soon be better

    I've seen in other forums that some people freeze cranberry juice in ice cubes, and give a cube with some meals for uti preventative maintenance. Haven't tried it myself but it seems like a convenient way that doesn't include too many meds, maybe consult a dog nutritionalist (if they exist?!) about this.
