Tammy - my last dog (sheltie) lived many years on Royal Canin S/I canned dog food after they found crystals in her urine. They've probably advanced beyond that by now, as that was many years ago. But, want you to know you're in my thoughts and prayers -- Tillie is special. Onward and upward in 2013!!



They're not my dogs -- I'm their person

Tino had crystals in his urine shortly after we got him. I knew something was wrong--I saw a change in his behavior and I knew something was up. I know you know how worried I was--I second guessed everything and worried that it was something worse than it turned out to be. I worried that the behavior would persist after the cause of the problem was cleared up. But nope, as soon as he physically felt better he returned to himself and we picked up house training where we left off. He has done great ever since. Not crazy about feeding him Hill's food, but that's short term. Thinking I will need to get a urinalysis to make sure the crystals are cleared before adjusting his diet to a better quality food.

Anyway, all this is to say that I'm so glad tillie is feeling better and returning to herself! That is the best news!

I guess I have been away from the Forum for longer than I thought. I just read this whole thread and am glad I found out Tillie is responding to the antibiotics.

About the morning shaking, besides the pain and possible White Shaker Dog Syndrome as possibilities, is it possible that Tillie feels a little chilled after coming from her nice warm bed to the morning air?

My dogs are in full coat and have not needed anything extra this winter (except when it's raining), but when they had puppy cuts they wore sweaters or jackets outside which stopped them from shivering.

Our two fosters (Blueberry and Layla) have really short hair, so I have been dressing them up in jackets or sweaters when going outside, and they seem much less reluctant to walk outside than on days when they didn't wear them. Just a thought....

Happy New Year, Tammy!

I had the same reaction as Starr. The only good thing about coming to a thread like this late is you get to worry just a little bit less when things look like they're improving. I'm sending love and hugs your (and Tillie's) way. I hope the treatment is successful long term and that you get your sweet angel back again.

Tillie is doing okay. She came with us to a friends house New Years Eve and was a trembling wreck. She has always come with us and never had an issue before...?
I had brought her crate and put her in a few times for just a little bit (maybe 5-10 minutes) as I was sitting RIGHT next to her crate.
Well, when we were packing up to leave my husband discovered she had pee'd in her crate, on her bed! I brought her with us so we could (and did) take her out at least every hour or so... so now I am begining to think that peeing in not okay places is stress related? ... sigh.

She has 4 more days left on her antibiotics, then I need to make the follow up appt.

Definitely do the follow-up appt. If she's still peeing in her crate, she might need different antibiotics or the crystals haven't resolved yet.
