    Aw, poor baby. Lupe had chronic utis and bladder crystals until we had to surgically rearrange her lady parts. She also had a stricture, which had to be manualy "stretched" weekly. She's been uti free since, but I still add water to her food daily and ACV in the water. I know the antibiotics are nasty, so it's great you have a vet willing to try something else, but this is a painful dangerous thing for your baby if it spreads to her kidneys. Can you up the cranberry?

    One thing that might help is keeping her lady parts extra clean, especially after she goes potty. I bought a bunch of wash clothes as the dollar store and just soaked them in warm water and witch hazel and did compresses a few times a day, then wiped her dry. Even now when I occasionally clean her (she doesn't need it daily any more) Lupe will roll over on her back when she smells the whitch hazel! She loves the warmth. Because our babies can't clean themselves very well, that might be what happened. Good luck!!!!

    She has Spina Bifida and wears a diaper. I constantly clean her. I have upped her cranberry. If she is no better by tomorrow I will call him again.

    He said if its not clearing up by friday he would give antibiotics. He doesnt want to now due to her being overloaded with them previously.

    Thankfully she is acting ok..Like herself.

    I don't have to tell you that acting like herself is the best sign there is

    They run frequent urine tests on Abby, checking for protein in the urine which would show her kidney failure is in the advanced stages. I started buying infant urine collection bags for her. It's a bag with a hole and tape around it to stick it to the outside of her lady parts. It's a sterile bag too for more accurate test results. It won't help this time but maybe that would help you with Gracie next time?

    You can buy them individually for 24 cents each or a box of 50 for 25.00. I can send you the link for where I buy them if you like. I ran out or I'd just send you a couple. I'm pretty sure you could pick one up at a pediatricians office or surgical supply store too.
