[YEA] Sunday afternoon noticed my 5 month old Border Collie was having a problem peeing, very little at a time. She was pacing around with a wild look in her eye and at time displaying pain when trying to urinate. I know she is due for her first heat cycle, but never have had any pup or adult dog act this way (heat cycle or not).
Our vet would not be in until the next day at 9 am, so I searched and found this site. Read the reviews and decided to try it quickly.
Sierra is around 23 pounds, healthy and normal. I gave her a heaping tablespoon of ACV with two tablespoons of yogurt with some chicken that I have canned myself.
Within an hour, she stopped pacing and looking wild eyed. Still had the other symptoms going on, but did rest from 10 to 12, peed some.
Took her out again at 3:30, peed some but still symptoms of dry pee etc, but no painfulness.
Monday morning gave her the same dose except added kibbles to it, then at noon and again at dinner time. Still had some symptoms, and also leaks on the floor and one puddle (out of nowhere). She also had loose stools by this time so I cut back on the yogurt to 1 tbs. By the time Monday evening came she still had a few times of dry pee. I gave it one more day before calling our vet. Tuesday morning all symptoms were gone and it is now Thursday. I have cut out the yogurt after Wed morning but have continued to give the ACV 3 xs a day and will do so until Sunday. After that it will be 1 teaspoon a day with her usual kibble and canned chicken.
Side note: that Sunday I noticed earlier that her stool had a lot of corn in it and straining to get it out. We live on a ranch and she must have scooped up some chicken scratch when I wasn't looking. Cannot say for sure but I think that might have been what brought this on.
Sorry for being long winded, but wanted to cover the bases for others. JJ
