Exclamation UPDATE: Recurrent/Persistent UTI...Bladder stones

I posted in here a few weeks ago about Bailey having a UTI/dark urine that was not being cured by 2 different courses of antibiotics. If you have this same problem PLEASE have your vet do a complete xray not just a bladder scan. We found out Bailey had 2 stones almost completely blocking her urethra and causing an infection to keep coming back. She is now having surgery to remove them but our vet said she has seen this be the cause of UTI's in about 75% of the dogs she treats and it can cause kidney damage and failure if it is not properly diagnosed and treated

Hope she feels better. I know the pain of kidney stones (I get them all the time!!). Give her some extra TLC.

Poor girl.....I am so glad you got it checked in time for her. Sometimes, you just need another vet diagnosis. Hope all goes well for Bailey.

Thank goodness Bailey's on her way to a full recovery. You might want to consider giving her cranberry capsules to prevent future UTIs.

Bailey had a cystotomy today and they removed 3 stones...I had no idea they would be this big! These are the two smaller in the picture...they kept the large one. Hopefully this is the end of her bladder problems!
