    Default Poor Gracie

    Is this dog ever going to catch a break? She has a severe UTI. Blood in urine, excessively thirsty and peeing like crazy. Called the vet he told me to try Apple cider vinegar, probiotics, and echinacea and goldenseal in her food twice a day? Anyone ever heard of this?

    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.

    Poor baby We give HRH a cranberry pill every day as a preventative of UTI. Once it gets cleared up you may want to do that too. Give her a in the meantime from me.

    perhaps antibiotics are the only thing that will shift it quickly anything else will be a slow process ,poor girl and poor you for the worry its causing,perhaps for now double/tripple the dose of cranberry pills to try and boost it out of her,karen

    The vet is just so worried about the massive antibiotics that she has been on since getting sick. He is trying a healthier way to get rid of it.

    I have never personally had this happen, I do know that the ACV (with the mother, Bragg brand) will balance the pH level, and the goldseal is herbal from a tree root the native's used in the winter months to enhance the immune system and keep colds away. The weed smokers use it too for cleansing the urine for pee tests. That's all I got for now. I sure hope she gets better soon.

    Poor Gracie. I hope that if it is prolonged she doesn't get bladder stones, males get them easier but bitches can get them too. Unfortunately I don't anything else that you could give her. I hope she gets well soon.
