Good morning,

I have a female dog, 7 month old Newfoundland, who has been treated twice-in-a-row for UTI. First course was a 10-day antibiotic, then about 5 days later she was on a 14-day antibiotics. While on medication she is fine, no symptoms. Both times they did a urinalysis to determine UTI. now, it has been around 3 days off her meds from the last UTI, and she is getting the symptoms again.. getting up at night to go pee, and then peeing and peeing and peeing, but I can’t actually see any pee coming out of her. It’s night right now though. She probably pee’d some, I’m not sure. I don’t think its blocked by stones.

Jasmine had UTI only once in her life and the second time around she had a resistant strain. Every time a UTI keeps coming back, it is important to look closer at what… Read more »

Stones? I’d likely want to check for those if it happens again.
