This isn't a review but I was looking for help/advice. I noticed a week ago that on a long walk, her pee started out fine but throughout, she would squat and dribble pee. The pee was sometimes cloudy, sometimes clear, I think somewhat pink at times. Not like her to mark so many times (girl). I assumed UTI. I tried something I bought on Amazon with good reviews. I may have been inpatient and stopped and started using ACV (about 2 TBSP mixed with 3TBSP of organic beef broth). It's been about day 3 of using ACV and noticed a slightly less peeing on a 40 minute walk today. (about 6 times in total... didn't notice pink but these things are always so hard to see! ) I was wondering how long it took for people to notice a change. She isn't straining to pee. I do notice she is drinking a little more water than normal. Last night I felt a wet puddle spot on the rug. It didn't smell like pee or had any color to it so I'm not sure. I am doing my best to take her out as often as I can as I'm sure that is helpful to getting any bacteria out. I hope I'm doing this right. I will take her to the vet to do a culture test if I have to but would prefer not to put her on clavamox. Another thing I noticed today was that she had diarrhea. Could this be from too much acidity in her stomach? thank you in advance. (her recent bloodwork in January was normal)
