Under the weather

Yep…. I gots me another UTI/Bladder fection.

Mom took me to the dogster before she went to the mountains (for her little vacation) cuz she suspected dat I had another fection.   Ya see…. I had a accident in the house @ 4:30am.   I just couldn't hold it until we got to the door.   Well…. she was right… another fection.  Drat.
So… we got the antibiotics and…..  I get to have wet/can food again.  Yippy!   I love the wet smelly stuff.    Yummmmmmmmmm.

Now… dis is the second one dat I've have in the past 5 months.   Mom is a bit concerned as she hopes dat dis is not an indicator of more serious issues down the road.   Ya see…. I am only 1yr and 6mo old.

Do you have any advice on what I can do to prevent future UTI/bladder fections?

Oh yeah…. I almost forgot to tell ya dat Mom got herself a Cold while she was in the mountains.   I guess neither of us got anything good from the mountain.   Maybe we should just stay at the beach.

So now I'm running around and playing (and peeing) and Mom is robbing the tissue box.  We're quite the pair.


  1. it does seem odd such a young chappy be getting uti's so often - I think a chitty chatty with the dogtor might be order and maybe rule out any other issues. There can be many problems at the root of it - check out http://pets.webmd.com/dogs/guide/lower-urinary-tract-problems-infections-dogs

  2. Oh no you both have got the sickies. Sorry we are of no help here. However we send you both healing vibes and POTP. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. Bummer! That does not sound like any fun at all for either of you! We'll be thinking about you and hoping you feel better SOON!

  4. Gracie has had two UTI's and she is a 8-year old pug. We are changing diets to help the UTI problem...the vet thinks it was the food.
    Much Love,
    Mama Mindy :)

  5. I'm sorry you're sick! I hope you feel better real soon.

  6. WE are dumb about UTI's but as others have said mom talking to the dogter cos you are just a baby...a cute little boy tho...hopes you both feel better real soon!!!

  7. If you stop drinking liquids, it will clear up eventually. I am not a dogtor.

  8. WE are so sorry to hear that YOU and your MOM are BOTH having the Sickies. We have our paws crossed fur BOTH of you.
    Maybe your innareds and your Pee Shooter don't like the foods you are eating.

  9. Aw, Ranger! UTIs can be so uncomfortable! Hope you feel better soon, buddy! Sometimes urinary tract infections recur because the antibiotic wasn't given long enough, or the wrong antibiotic was used. If Wrigs were to have recurrent bladder infections, the first thing I'd do is have the vet collect a sterile urine sample via cystocentesis and send it to the lab for a culture and sensitivity. (Of course, maybe this has already been done.) This helps the vet identify exactly which kinds of bacteria are causing the infection and which antibiotic will kill them. Another culture should be done about a week after you finish your antibiotics to be certain you kicked that infection's butt. If after all this, you still get another infection, it's probably time to take a closer look with some additional testing. Get well soon!

  10. Oh Ranger, I'm so sorry you have another infection! Maybe you just need to drink more water and eat some cranberries and you will be free of them furrever! Me-Ommmmmm

  11. You and your mom just need to cuddle up until you feel better together!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  12. AWwww hope you will be feeling better soon. Mom thinks that I may have one too, so we will be heading off to the vet,. She is gonna call first.


  13. Oh no, we're sorry your poorly again Ranger. We asked mom and she says she only knows about hooman UTIs...sorry. Hope you and mom both feel better soon.
    Wally & Sammy

  14. So sorry Ranger that you and your Mom don't feel well. Hope you can get it straightened out. Maybe you need a more acidic diet. That is what our Mom did when she had FOUR uti's just last year. She started taking cranberry pills and she has not had one this year

  15. Oh my poor baby, youz shouldn't beez hazing thiz at your age.. Hope it'z nuffin else. Sending'z youz all my lub'z and slobber'z..Poor Mommy too. Get'z well'z soon xxooxxx

    Mollie and Alfie

  16. Sorry, we can't help you...knock on wood...we haven't had any fections. AND if your mum abandoned you in your sickness to go off by herself, then we think a cold is fair! If she took you, just ignore that sentence. We do hope she's feeling better soon and doesn't have a sore nose.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  17. Oh Ranger that's awful..our Dinnermintz has had these so bad that she must now have justfresh meat or special tinned meat..she can't even have special vet diet kibbles anymore..being a felines i think it's a bit different..i do hope you and poor mum get better..rotten moutains hugs Fozziemum and gang xx

  18. I peeped in the floor the other day but it was no UTI or accident. BOL

    Aroo to you,

  19. We hope you feel better soon. Our lady says she has been lucky and not have to deal with this, so we don't have advice. Lee and Phod

  20. Ranger we have all our feets crossed for you
    Benny & Lily

  21. Oh so sorry to hears abouts this Ranger!! Nothin' worse than a pee shooter that keep shootin'!! BOL
    Sounds like everyone's givin' you some good advise, so I'll just say that I'd drink lots of beer and, oh, shoot, that would make it worse, huh? nevermind....
    Tell your MOms to feel better soon, I'm thinkin' bouts both of you! Paws crossed!
    Ruby ♥

  22. Looks like you got lots of advice! We sure do hope that both you and your mom feel better SOON!! xo Chloe and LadyBug

  23. Gosh Ranger I've never had one of those UTI things but it doesn't sound like much fun. I hope that medicine AND the nice juicy wet food (!) clears it right up! Wish I had some advice to pass on about how to run fast enough to get away from those UTI germs but I bet someone else does......GET WELL SOON BUDDY!

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  24. Hope you are both feeling better soon!!

  25. Oh no, Ranger! Miss Heather started peeing like that one day...to the point she was peeing several times an hour. I took her to the V-E-T thinking it was a bladder infection but it turned out to be related to her liver. Be sure your mom keeps watch over your liver values as you get older. They've kept our family quite busy over the last year and a half. You are so very young! I hope the V-E-T can find you a fix soon. Much love, The Scottie Mom.
