First UTI

Had to make our first trip to the Vet for health reasons. Urinary track infection. Antibiotics for 14 days.

Luckily, she will feel better almost instantly from the antibiotics. Are you supposed to give her food with the medicine?

I hope your furbaby feels better soon.

TTFN,
Pam

She gets 1/2 a pill, twice a day. The vet recommended putting it in a piece of cheese, which Ginger loves getting. Not a problem at all getting her to take the first 2 doses.

I knew it was a UIT last night when she just couldn't stop trying to pee. I could tell she was uncomfortable. Glad I trusted my instincts.

My Nessie got one when she was little. It was scary because she had blood in her urine. It was a horrid mess. Of course, it happened on a Sunday so we had to rush to the emergency pet ER. Two doses and she was fine. Antibiotics are magical.

TTFN,
Pam

I'm dealing with my first UTI with my little girl. Peeing every 10 minutes. Took her to the vet - they put her on an oral antibiotic. The UTI is very annoying - just started meds yesterday. Please tell me it gets better?

It certainly interrupted her potty training inside.

Yes, the UTI will get better with antibiotic. My little girl had her UTI after spaying. I saw the same symptoms as mentioned by others, long pee time and often. Maggie also had a little bit of blood in her pee. She was put on liquid amoxicillin and we could see she was better 24 hrs later. She continued medicine for 2 weeks. I was so glad to get Maggie back to her high spirited self.

Rest and meds. Your little one will be better soon.

Thanks. I hope also - just when potty training was getting good.

Ginger was better in a couple days. Getting the antibiotic was the key.

I wanted to add, if the UTI doesn't get better after a couple days, call your Vet and report what's happening. If you can't talk to Vet, ask for a call back.

Hope your little one is better soon.

Thanks, I will. I will see how she is doing today with it. The second dosage is this evening - that will make it a full 48 hrs since she started on Saturday. The vet called yesterday checking on her. But there wasn't a significant improvement and say give it a couple of days. I have the liquid amoxicillin. She doesn't seem to be in pain to my knowledge, it's just the frequency of urination and then when she does go she's squatting for several seconds and then once she done, she goes to another area and squat again for several seconds. Also going the house, front in of me. Luckily she doesn't do it in her crate. Everything else is fine, eating good, drinking water, pooing fine.
