My 8 month old dachshund puppy has been peeing uncontroablly over the house lately. He is potty trained, and knows better. But lately he has been peeing as he walks and all over the house. We let him out plenty so i know /component/page,shop.browse/category_id,7/option,com_virtuemart/Itemid,1/”>cialis costs he has opportunities to relieve himself. We took him to the vet and they took a sample of his urine. When we got the results back the vet said that there was crystals in his urine. They wanted him to come back in to get an x-ray to see if there are stones. I dont think he has stones, but im not sure, ive already spent a ton of money at the vet, so im really not wanting to take him in to get an x-ray. I dont know if there is really something wrong with him, or if he’s just developing a bad habit!! Help!!
Well I can certainly understand as to why your medical opinion would be better that that of a schooled veterinarian.
Suck it up and take your puppy in for an x-ray so that he can get diagnosed and treated.
If you are not willing to pay more monies to a vet either return the pup to the breeder, surrender him to a rescue organization or to a shelter so that someone will get him the medical treatment he deserves and needs.
she’s a shi tzu and she was on meds before but they didn’t work, at all and the vet said sorry, we can’t do anything about it. so now, i don’t know what to do. i heard that taking her for walks will help /component/page,shop.browse/category_id,6/option,com_virtuemart/Itemid,6/”>cialis buy online and stuff like that but i dont know!
what can i do?!
Find a new vet your’s is clearly incompetent. Once you find a new vet request a culture be done so they can determine what antibiotic is needed since what ever your first vet put her on didn’t work.
She has blood in urine
I will /component/option,com_jcalpro/Itemid,28/extmode,day/date,2010-12-15/”>free cialis coupon tell you what might help until you can get your dog to a vet. Home remedies do not always eliminate the underlying cause of a UTI, so you must take your pet to a vet as soon as possible. Otherwise, your dog might develop more serious problems like bladder infections and possibly kidney failure. In the mean time, you can give your dog citrus juice, like orange, lime, or cranberry, with its first meal of the day. Try a small class of it, giving it to him/her periodically throughout the day if he/she can’t drink it all at once. You can substitute the juice with apple cider vinegar (it can be purchased in most grocery or health food stores). According to the size of your dog, I would give him/her anywhere from a half teaspoon to one tablespoon, but not more than that, each day. The citrus or vinegar will help reduce the bacteria that is causing the infection. Make sure your dog drinks lots of clean water and make sure you let him or her go outside frequently. Then as soon as you can, get your dog to a vet. The sooner your dog gets treatment, the less discomfort or complications he or she will experience. Plus, the earlier your dog is treated, the less money you will have to spend to get them better. I hope this helps and hope your dog feels much better soon. Take care!!
For the last couple of weeks my cat has been peeing around my house and i didn’t know why because he used to rarely have accidents. Then today i noticed blood in his pee and i freaked out and looked up what it could be and urinary tract infection came up. I am going to call the vet on monday because that is when my vets office is open. If he has it what can i do until he gets to the vet on monday? And how much would antibiotics cost to treat it? Also how likely /component/option,com_jcalpro/Itemid,99999999/extmode,cal/date,2060-03-01/”>cialis cheapest price is this infection fatal for cats?
If not treated it will be fatal because a simple UTI and advance to kidney disease. If you have a emergency vet in the area, contact them at get the cat seen. This is very painful for the cat and it needs antibiotics. These are not an expensive medication.
Levoquin or levofloxacin /component/page,shop.browse/category_id,7/option,com_virtuemart/Itemid,3/”>free cialis pills is used to treat urinary tract infections in humans. I know enrofloxacin (baytril) and amoxacillin are normally used in cats with urinary tract infections. Can Levaquin be used to treat cats as well?
No, it’s not used in cats.
My dog recently developed a urinary tract infection and I’m not sure how. She was at the groomer’s a few days before, but I am not sure if this had anything to do with it. Anyone know?
We took her to vet and he gave us medication for my dog.
Just like humans, dogs get a UTI when bacteria enter the urethra (the pee hole) and travel up to the bladder, where they happily multiply.
This kind of thing can happen anywhere, anytime. A dog could become infected simply from lying on the ground.
One possible culprit is fecal matter that reaches the opening of the urethra. I doubt the groomer’s had anything to do with it, but if they are sloppy and your dog was dried with a soiled towel, it could be the cause, even if the soiling itself came from your dog.
Another thing you might like to know: healthy urine is both sterile and acidic. The bladder’s naturally acidic environment is enough to kill most "invaders." On the other hand, because it is sterile, any bacteria that enter and survive can multiply easily, since there is no competition, so to speak.
So your best defense against UTIs is to maintain highly acidic urine. Meat protein does that, whereas vegetable "substitutes" (grains or legumes) don’t. So if you want to help your dog, make sure you select a dog food that /component/page,shop.browse/category_id,6/option,com_virtuemart/Itemid,36/”>cialis buy on line contains mostly meat, rather than a bunch of cereal fillers.
I hope your dog gets better soon.
My dog has a urinary tract infection and crystals in the bladder. She was prescribed that crappy royal canin urinary formula that vets always give.
I usually feed natural and hollistic food to my dogs (wellness or solid gold), so I really don’t want to give her something so unnatural and FULL of grain and by-products.
I have heard that Eagle Pack foods are good for urinary maintenance because all of their foods contain cranberry powder. Does anyone know anything more about this?
I wouldn’t feed the regular Eagle Pack but Eagle Pack Holistics are usually fine, just keep an eye out that the phosphorus level isn’t too high in the food you choose.
Cranberry powder is great for dogs with urinary problems, but it’s super easy to add that to any food. I feed Canidae, and one of my dogs had a history of UTI’s no matter what food I had her on. I started giving her a cranberry capsule (you can buy them at any drug store) every day, then cut back to every other day or every third day. She hasn’t had a problem since.
A bottle of cranberry capsules runs about $5.00 and lasts /component/option,com_jcalpro/Itemid,28/extmode,day/date,2011-01-13/”>cialis sales online quite awhile. Buy the capsules that are regular strength, not ‘super concentrated’ and get one that doesn’t have a bunch of other junk in them. You can also get cranberry tablets made specifically for dogs from veterinarians or pet supply companies. If you want to feed Eagle Pack, go ahead. But if you are ONLY feeding it because of the cranberry, then just add the cranberry to whatever you decide to feed. This is a common remedy for urinary problems among experienced dog owners, and certainly safer and less costly than repeated courses of antibiotics and vet visits caused by the UTI in the first place.
I got my puppy from a shelter and she was living with a good foster parent. I was told that she is potty trained and the only way she will pee in the house is if she does not repsect me. I have raised dogs my entire life so i figured, no problem. She is an /component/page,shop.browse/category_id,7/option,com_virtuemart/Itemid,45/vmcchk,1/”>cialis generic price amazing dog and repect and listens very well. The only thing is, she pees everywhere! And it’s not because she has to go to the bathroom…I will take her on hikes everyday and when we get home, she will pee! What is going on? Can dogs have urinary tract infection? Is she not potty trained? I have never had this problem with any of my other dogs. Help!
Maybe she smells the other dogs and is trying to mark her territory. Everytime she does this, if you catch her, I would immediately in a stern voice tell her no and take her outside right away. I know that with my puppy we trained him to pee on command. I used to take him outside every 20mins or so and while he was peeing I would say "pee, pee, pee, pee" after about a week of doing this all we had to do was take him outside and say "Teddy pee" and he would pee on command, same thing with poop. And he never mess’s in the house anymore. Good luck with everything.
I have a four month old apricot pug and for the past week, she’s on an antibiotic to treat a urinary tract infection. How she got it, I have no clue. We tried changing her water source from Culligan to tap water and we also changed her food from Royal Canin to IAMS. I’m starting to think her UTI was caused from the food but I could be wrong. My vet recommended buying IAMS so we went with that.
Anyway, I went to Petco yesterday and I asked the employee if she could explain more about UTI and she said stress could be one of the factors. My pug has been settled here at home for almost two months. Maybe she’s a little stressed out that we’re trying to train her not to chew on the furniture or bite me or my other family members and perhaps we’ve stepped over her boundary just a tad. I don’t know.
My second question is that I want to train her to use the potty indoors AND outdoors but its tough to take her outside when its pretty cold first thing in the morning or when its raining (I know its going to rain as we approach the spring and summer months). What /component/page,shop.product_details/category_id,6/flypage,flypage.tpl/product_id,59/option,com_virtuemart/Itemid,28/vmcchk,1/”>cialis 20 mg tadalafil are some things you folks do to help train your puppy/dog on when to go potty outdoors? Do you train her to ring a bell or scratch some surface to let you know that she needs to go potty?
Urinary tract infections are not caused by stress. They are caused by bacteria. The most common reason for a b*tch to have one, is because when she squats to pee, her Vulva is close to the ground, or touching the ground, making it very easy for bacteria to enter. Now, on with the housebreaking……when you use pee pads indoors, you are teaching her that it’s OK to eliminate in the home. Since the ultimate goal is for her to go outside, don’t confuse her by trying to do this 2 ways. Just take her outside, no matter what the weather is like. Millions of people do it, and so can you. If I can take a pup out in 2 feet of snow, I promise a few raindrops will not kill you or your pup.
I have three /component/page,shop.cart/option,com_virtuemart/Itemid,38/vmcchk,1/”>non prescription cialis female dogs of different breeds, all of whom have come up with urinary tract infections at the same time according to my vet’s urine tests. One has struvite crystals also. They all drink purified water and eat an organic super premium natural diet. None of them hump each other so it wasn’t spread that way. There have been no male dogs around them. I read that Kibble can cause bladder stones/UTI’s because of the high carbs and high bacteria count in dry food. One of my dogs had eaten kibble for only a month and when I switched her back to canned, she got better. However, now the infection has returned in all three dogs. All three dogs have been given two rounds of Cephalexin but this only caused a temporary improvement. Now the infections are back with a vengence (blood and mucous in the urine.)
Just because the food is super premium, doesn’t mean that it’s the best for urinary tract health. I’m sure that there are others, but Innova, California Natural, Healthwise, and Flint River Ranch are the only ones I KNOW are formulated to promote a healthy urine pH.
I’ve never heard of carbohydrates being blamed for infection, nor bacteria from dog food. A majority of dry diets are well balanced (protein and carb ratios). High protein diets have been linked to crystal and stone formation, dogs prone to this are recommended to eat in the 16%-20% protein range. And, canned food could help the dogs avoid it, due to the high water content (water flushes the system). Do they have constant access to water and toilet facilities? Holding it for too long can cause infections, too. Perhaps the infections were never cleared up completely, too-did you have a urinalysis performed on them after the last round of antibiotics were complete? Did the vet recommend a prescription diet to break up the crystals in the one dog? They do work, much as you hate to feed them…I would use it for several weeks, until the dogs have clear urinalysis, and then wean them onto a food designed to balance urine pH for urinary tract health.
