I have a 6 yrs. old dashound about 20lbs. She had calcium stones removed last Dec. about a 1/2 cup of them sz about quarter to nickle. She is on Science Diet CD and she is still having blood in her urine sometimes it is brownish and the sometimes it will have blood in it. She act fine. We normally put her on SMZ/TMP480 for about 14 days it seems to clear up but in 3 months she has another one. No stones at this time. What can I do to prevent all of these UTI's?
Your pet may need a urine culture to help determine the best antibiotic for the type of bacteria growing. A sonogram of the abdomen is not a bad idea eiter. Some stomes can be missed on x-ray and a sonogram gives us a better idea of what the bladder looks like. vetcare
