I think your Tilly and my Desilu are going through similar things. Desilu is not even a year old, and has reoccuring UTIs since she was spayed back in July. She's also seemed to have develop spay incontinence which means if she goes down for a nap, she ends up urinating on herself and whatever she's laying on. I may let her out once an hour, but she still manages to require a butt bath on a daily basis. She's been on several different antibiotics and the end of each dose, she still hasn't cleared the bacteria. The vets also found crystals in her urine. She's been on canned S/D for the past month.
I just dropped off another urine sample at the vet. At least now, I don't have to pay for the visit, just the urinalysis. If it comes back positive for bacteria, I'll have to bring her in for a urine culture. I am at the end of my rope because it seems like as long as I've had her, she's never been healthy, though to no one's fault. I've spent an enormous amount of money on vet visits, and she's peeped on my MIL's comforter and grandmother's chair...and multiple times on my lap. She's on DES, which is supposed to control the incontinence, but it doesn't seem to be working well.
I love my Desilu so very much, and it is heartbreaking to me that she could be in pain and discomfort because of this constant UTI.
I hope Tillie gets well soon.
