    Would need to check that, but preferably a trip to an homoeopathic vet would be in order, as homoeopathy takes into account many things, not just the symptoms you are seeing.

    Nalu's is almost finished with her 2 week antibiotic treatment for a bladder infection and still doesn't seem to make it through the night unless she gets at least one walk. With a walk she can sleep nine hours straight. Without a walk I have to get up during the night to take her outside, but at least it's only once now. It's quite easy to put a small plastic tupperware beneath her to collect, and then transfer it to a jar if necessary.

    My Rosie was having accidents in her crate a while back, and when I would take her out to potty, she wouldn't go. She was also licking at her vulva area quite a bit. Turns out that she had a yeast infection. She was put on some anti-fungal pills and is fine now and pottying outside like normal. You can also use a paper plate slid under her to catch the urine and transfer it into a container. They do look at you like you are crazy when you try to catch a sample from them!!

    Sounds more like spay incontinence than a UTI since the only symptom seems to be slight enuresis (leaking at night during deep sleep). I had an older male lab mix many years ago - male - who had this (obviously "neuter incontinence") and he took phenylpropanolamine daily for the rest of his life, which solved the problem.

    One important note - don't ever let any vet catheterize your dog for a urine sample! Easy way to introduce bacteria and actually cause a urinary tract infection, and it's very painful - and you can't get a sterile sample that way so it defeats the purpose. The proper technique to get a sterile urine sample is cystocentesis - which is tapping the bladder directly with a needle through the abdomen. This isn't painful or distressing to the dog like being catheterized, and the vet obtains a perfectly sterile sample. Sterile sample is used for a culture and sensitivity test - free catch or catheterized sample can often be contaminated. Take the dog to the vet with a FULL bladder when getting a cysto.

    Hi

    Went outside with them all at 5.30 this morning and managed to catch about 4 1/2 ml so that was an imrovement ,then walks at 8.00 then to the vets .Archie said there was sufficient urine and so did his little test while asking questions, the test read normal so onto a physical exam which again was fine .Suggested possible cystisis so prescribed Noroclav 250 mg with half twice a day for one week then to go back if the problem persists ,he also said he could if needed presribe a tablet which would tighten her muscles down below but its a tablet for life .I am not too happy about taking tablets for anything for myself and wouldn,t really want poor Rosie to have to unless of course it was the last resort ,so will have to do some reading and see what I can find out .Thanks for all your concern and any comments and guidance wellcome .
