    That's a shame for Baloo. Poor Boy.

    Don't be harsh on yourself though, these things happen.

    Hope he (and you!) feels better soon.

    Dont be hard on yourself.
    When Maggie had crystals in her urine test they told me I should probably add water to her food because they didnt think she was getting enough water.
    We have since moved the water dish into the living room : , give ice a few times a day, and add water to each meal she gets. In total she gets about a 1.5 cups of water in her food a day. Shes not real big on drinking water. :

    Don't feel so bad. Everyone makes mistakes. It's easy to confuse housebreaking accidents with uti's, especially if you've never seen one before. I know you are a good dog mom, so don't sweat it.

    That's what I don't get!!! I thought he was drinking TOO MUCH water, now she's says not enough....

    I've really really tried to avoid at all costs holding him to "minpin standards of behaviour" but maybe I thought it was so much because it's soo much more than Peanut drinks.... ah jeez.

    Well, those guys don't drink much that's for sure. Maybe this will help - see the water jug in this pic? I fill it sometimes twice a week in summer, and once a week in winter for my two. That's not including the bucket they have outside, or their pool they drink from too.

    Don't beat yourself up! Sometimes these things happen. What is the treatment for crystals? Hope he feels better soon.

    I love this picture ;D ;D ;D

    Antibiotics and the like. He has an appointment at 4:45 this aft, so we'll see where the vet wants to go from here.
