    Lily will be 10 in June. health has been good. she has had some uti’s in the past, last time 3 yrs ago. ruled out no stones. She had a week of diarhhea recently, after meds it cleared up now she has a uti, last day of meds. The drinking and urinating excessively has lessened. She will pee in her normal spot, then, walk down end of yard and pee again. Never seen her do this before, is it still uti or is it old age related behavior. She had a full blood panel done in March, all checked out.

    It could still be the UTI. I would get it checked. Maybe she needs a different antibiotic.
    I hope she is feeling better soon.

    I'd say UTI as well. Raine had them a few times a year. She was a marker just like male dogs and never fully emptied her bladder. Always saving it for another tree I guess! She had a polyp in her bladder diagnosed with ultrasound. Also crystals anytime she had a UTI. Polyp went away within 18 months on its own OR I started adding ACV to her food twice daily to help change the PH level in an attempt to rid her of the UTI's.

    Seems fine now. So it took the whole 10+ days to see improvement. So knock on wood, no more as long as I give her these cranberry chews for dogs.

    Glad to hear that she is feeling better. Hopefully the cranberry chews will keep her there.
