[WARNING!]  Re: the yogert and vinegar suppliment for canine bladder infections...

My dog had previous problems with getting bladder infections. I left my dog with the sitter for a trip to Texas. When we got back the sitter said, think you have an infection starting again...so I thought I would try using the vinegar and yogurt diet listed on your website for canines instead of wasting a lot of money taking her to a vet, because I thought I would outsmart the vet and save money. My dog didn't get better within the week. I ended up taking her to the VET anyhow. As it turns out, MY DOG WAS NOT SUFFERING FROM A BLADDER INFECTION, BUT WAS DIAGNOSED WITH DIABETES. Her blood sugar was through the roof ((normal is around 130 to 140 and my dogs was 480!!!)) Diabetes, if left untreated is fatal and it presents itself as a bladder infection because the dog's system is virtually being flooded with sugar (and this is a blood disease just like in humans, so no amount of fed sugars would cause this)!!! If you think your Dog has a problem at all...take them to a Vet...it's safer. Don't self medicate to save money, leave your dogs treatment to a professional....Please learn from my stupid mistake and don't take chances with your beloved pets life like I did! I am completely ashamed of myself for trying to cut corners ~ Better safe than sorry!!! ~ The yogurt and vinegar wasn't bad for my dog and didn't harm her, but it definantly delayed my finding out the underlying problem for an extra week...diabetes is nothing to play around with!

Hi, I have a puppy age 6 months old, recently when I took her to a trip for holidaying. Upon returning home on the next day, I noticed that she has difficulty peeing. ( I search the net and suspected that she has urinary track infection) She tried to pee but only a few drops came out. Each time she did it, it could not came out and there would be little stained here and there.

Due to the holiday seasons her vet was not operating. I could not wait until the next day seeing her suffered. What I did was, I gave her 125mg of Vitamin C( Calcium Ascorbate) in the everning(mixing the poweder to her kibbles). The next morning she seem ok, no more urinary track infection... I guess. However, I continue to treat her with 125mg of Vit C for 2 days with Sodium Ascorbate and ascorbic Acid instead of Calcium Ascorbate as I have ran out of Calcium Ascorbate.

To my suprise she is back to normal after the 2nd day.
