Q. My 11yr poodle who is house trained has had three accidents and suspect a uti until I go to my vet is there anything I can give her ?
A. It is never recommended to treat a dog with medication unless it has been diagnosed with a specific ailment and medication is prescribed. The vet can do a urine test to determine UTI and advise on the best course of antibiotics for her case. Anything you give her now may interact with the meds from the vet so best to book an appointment asap and not give her anything in the mean time.
A. No. Do not give any medications to your pet without the advice of your veterinarian. Inappropriate antibiotic use can lead to resistant bacteria and may complicate the condition.
