Poor Kaci

Around last weekend, Kaci started to pee inside. She also peed frequently. On Saturday morning, she saw the v-e-t about this and was diagnosed with Urinary Tract Infection. She was given Clavamax to take. The supply we were given runs out early next week but the Clavamax hasn’t seemed to have any effect. If there’s nothing by Tuesday, it’s back to the (shhhhh) v-e-t.

  1. Corky used to have constant UTI’s. It would go away and return all of the time. It was suggested that I give her a urinary acidifier on a daily basis. It never came back again.

  2. Yikes, poor baby. I hope this clears up soon. Bless her little heart. ☺

  3. (insert price is right losing horn) Hope she feels better soon.

  4. Sending POTP to Kaci. Hope she gets better soon and does not have to go back to the (VET).

  5. Aww, hope she’s better soon and doesn’t have to revisit the you-know-who.

  6. The poor dear! Let’s hope that when she gets enough meds in her bloodstream she’ll start feeling better.

  7. I’m sorry about Kaci…..I know she’s miserable……I’m ending her some POTP for sure……….and of course a Sammy Hug.

    Love, Sammy

  8. Cranberry juice lowers the pH of the urine, making it more acidic. Fall back on Grandma’s old home cure. It has the potential effect on the ability of some types of bacteria to stick to the bladder wall. Yes Lee has used it on her pets and she drinks it herself. Cheap and worth a try. Ouch Kaci ~ we feel for you.

  9. Hope you feel better soon, Kaci!! Sounds like cranberry juice in in your future!! Let us all know if it helps.

  10. Oh dear….you’ve got a few more days to improve before the v.e.t. Hope it works.

    • Yeah, but the problem is that the vets has other things to deal with. This weekend, the vet is moving the “pracitce” (love that term, when do they get it right?) ten miles away (that’s 16 km in Oz). I’m not gonna get 100% attention.

  11. I have been through that very same thing! Hope you feel better! Otherwise they’ll take another sample and give you some other pills. I am convalescing myself! Had some insides taken away so I don’t bring any more knuckleheads in the world. Now I can’t run or swim for 2 weeks! That’ll drive em crazy! Me too!

  12. Hope Kaci feels better soon!

  13. Oh dear! we are sorry to hear this Kaci! We hope you are feeling better soon!

  14. We hope there’s nothing to keep a secret about past Tuesday!

  15. Oh noes!!!! Sorry gurl! I hopes you gets to feelin’ betters real soon! Hey, you could drinks a cranberry margarita!!! Oh YEAH! That sounds delish!!! I thinks I have some cranberries around here somewheres….yuppers! There they are…I’ll send one to you FedEx overnight!
    If that doesn’t work, I’m keepin’ my paws crossed if you have to visit the v.e.t. agains…..whatevers you do…don’t go in the back room!!! Nothin’ good ever happens back there!

    • It doesn’t matter whether it works or not, send us all some cranberry margaritas-it will improve the attitude at this house. Call 1-800-SEND-RITA for the address.

  16. Oh no. UTIs are no fun at all. We hope it clears up soon, you’re face kinda says it all in that photo.

  17. Kaci I hope that evil UTI runs away soon and the clavamox will help you to chase all that sickies away from you. We used it for one of the huskies but unfortunately it wasn’t good for the stomach (puke-pawty) and we switched to baytril. I cross my paws that it works for you and you haven’t to seen that vet-guy again. POTP, hugs&kisses :o)

  18. Oh no! What an uncomfortable state of affairs. We send sympathy, scritches, and hopes that the meds kick in. She is such a precious. You can see she doesn’t feel up to speed.

  19. Get Well Soon. Perhaps you need to make an appointment at the Ainsley Institute of Advanced Scientific Studies, a Division of Angus Fala Worldwide Enterprises? My team of crackhead scientists are doing wonderful things in nutrition and UTIs. I have personally found that a healthy dosage of rancid raw baby bunny meat will cure about anything that ails the common dog.

    • Bunnies we have in abundance and the peeps don’t let us at them. They won’t let us at the lizards, tarantulas or snakes either. Perhaps you can send me a scientific report about the usefulness of any of these to treat UTI.

  20. Kaci, sorry to hear you’re not feeling so hot, UTI’s are no fun. Feel better soon.

    Aroo to you,

  21. get well soon Kaci,xx Speedy

  22. Oh man, I hate to hear this. She’s just so sweet looking in that little photo. Give her a hug for me, will you? With your big ‘ole wings?

  23. Kaci, we hope u get better soon.

  24. Oh no!! hope you get better soon


    • Not yet. We’re getting her different meds and some of the suggestions made here. We don’t care who gets the credit, just as long as Kaci is better.

  25. Feel better Kaci! Keep us updated before Tuesday!

    • She’s on different meds-same non-effect. She’s still peeing and pooping in the house frequently. It’s probably back to the vet because the vet is getting a call.
