Sorry, this is going to be a little big gross, but we need some assistance.
Yesterday I looked at Jabez, our Rottie dog, as she was lying on the floor and noticed a puddle under her back end. We went to check it out and sure enough she was “leaking” (I’m really trying not to be gross) involuntarily. She’s never had a bladder problem before and she’s been experiencing a bit of pain in her back end in the last week or so when Chris has been playing with her and walking around etc. After doing some reading online we think she has a urinary tract infection. I read that though it’s not the most common drug used to treat a canine UTI, Cipro is an option. I gave her one yesterday evening (500 mg because she weighs about 50+ lbs).
We’d love some advice about treatment. There is a vet somewhere in Port, but the next time we’re going in is next week to head home. Any help from vet types, if there are any reading this, would be very much appreciated.
