    DefaultSigns of a UTI...........

    Hey guys,
    Chance pees all the time!!! Not sure if he has a UTI or not, I just kind of want to know before I go to a vet. Anyone else had experience with UTI......???

    The voice of experience here.

    I'm not sure what "pees all the time" means, though. And how old is Chance?

    For us, the UTI was easy to spot -- Sami was housebroken and would need to go out every 10 minutes. She had 2 accidents in the house and one in the crate (which had never happened).

    You really shouldn't have to take Chance in ... yet. Just drop off a fresh urine sample and your vet can tell you whether there is a UTI or not.

    Then I'd take a sample to the vet. When he squats, get behind him and slide a little disposable gladware container right underneath him. By the time he figures out what you're doing, you'll have your sample.

    Antibiotics -- I think Sami was on Cephlaxin (sp?) if I recall correctly. But make sure you ask your vet about putting Chance on cranberry pills (like Cranactin). You should definitely get his opinion/dosing info. I had Sami on them for months after her UTI (it was her only one), but had to take her off of them when she went on an elimination diet.
