Unhappy Augie.....

Finn has been going after Augie's nether regions for awhile, but the last few days it has gotten quite aggressive. Also, Augie seems to have to go potty much more frequently, and lately we have found where he has peed on the rug in the entry way during the night. So, I took him in to make sure there was nothing physical amiss, and he has a urinary tract infection. The vet is sending his urine to the lab to see if there is more going on, like crystals.

Oh no! Do you think that Finn recognized that something was off with Augie? I hope it is just an infection. Owie! Poor Augie.

TTFN,
Pam

Pam, yes, that is what I do think. They have licked each other before, but for the last couple of days, he just wouldn't let Augie be. The vet says his urine is also very concentrated. They both drink quite a bit of water. And I NEVER restrict water for them - it is always available to them. The one thing I have done fairly recently is change food, and I am wondering if it isn't too rich or something, that his system isn't handling it well, because he has done well until now. I guess I wait until tomorrow to see if the tests show anything else and go from there.

that is amazing to me. Just like the service dogs who know that their person is going to have a seizure... Dogs are wonderful.

TTFN,
Pam

Linda, I'm glad you got Augie in to the vet before the weekend! Hope he gets well quickly with just a few days of antibiotics.

Poor Augie.
