Our seven year old Sally has generally been pretty healthy, not counting a scary case of masticatory myositis a couple of years ago. Lately though, she has had several problems. Her allergies have gotten very bad; we have started her on an exclusion diet, poor thing was so itchy and had hot spots. Now she has a UTI. I came home yesterday and let her out, and she proceeded to urinate little drips every 20 seconds, with straining. Of course, this was 5 PM on a Friday. Luckily our wonderful vet stayed open for us. He was unable to get a clean sample for culture, as her bladder was too empty. We did get a sample for urinalysis, she had red blood cells in her urine. She is on antibiotics and he gave her a shot for pain, but she's still not herself. Does anyone have experience they can share regarding these problems? I feel terrible for my poor puppy.
