On the 3rd UTI in a short period of time, Dr. Joe said with everything being good (bladder, no stones, etc) He wanted to do the vuvlaplasty to remove the extra skin... with her being a low pee'er (practically sat on the grass when she went, she would always get the infection due to dirt or whatever getting caught in the area. From the time he told us that till the surgery would would wipe her girlie parts after each pee, but I can't say of it helped or not because we had surgery scheduled within a week of discussing it.
    Wow I'm glad that helped Banks so much!! I'll have to ask the vet to take a better look when we go on Saturday and see if they think that is something she may definitely need. She does the same thing when peeing, is pretty much sitting right on the grass. Ugh I just wish they had mentioned this before so we could've just had it done when she had her spay/soft palate surgery a couple months ago

    Good luck.. let me know if you have any questions-- but the procedure was quick, it looked bad while healing, but it did not bother her at all

    Good to hear! Hopefully it isn't too expensive...I'm battling my own ongoing health issues and just had surgery myself last week so don't even know when we would be able to get this done!! I think my husband is going to go crazy if he hears one of us needs another surgery haha

    Thank you so much!! The vet called and is going to start her on antibiotics again and said she will look at her on Saturday to see if the surgery may be needed. She said it's definitely a life changing surgery for dogs with these problems so that makes me feel better! I just get worried about doing it and it not working so I want to make sure she really needs it!

    I heard back from BRAGGS regarding ACV and amino content concern, posting the comment/question and reply below...

    "I am unable to find the amino acid content in one bottle of ACV. I am asking for a member of a forum that has a dog with Cystine Stones and decided to stop giving his dog ACV because Cystine is an Amino and he was concerned of the content in the bottle - however, there is no mention of the content on your bottle (I always have a bottle on hand as I love your product. Any input I may offer him? I advocate for dog owners to buy BRAGGS and add a capful to their dog's drinking water or food…If this is a true concern, I would like to be aware. WAnted to go straight to the source (you) for input. Kindly, Laurie"

    "
    Dear Laurie,
    Thank you for your e-mail. Sorry for the long wait on our response. Our chemist stated, there is not a notable amount of them in the ACV.

    Completely your choice, ACV it's not always for everyone(dog). This wasn't meant to sway your decision Wes, it was a great point that I wanted to address for future reference and did not have a clear answer. Most of my reading came from dissolving/passing of Calcium Oxalate stones and Struvite stones…I was very curious about your concern w/cystine and amino. This was to follow up for others that have a concern about amino content in the mixture as it is not listed on the bottle.
    You can still use it as a rinse though

    At this point I am just being cautious about what I give him. His skin allergies did calm down and he didn't seem to have bowel issues as much when he was getting ACV with his food. I am just not sure right now and he would still be getting ACV if the cystine stone issue hadn't happened.

    Thanks for all your help and replies
