I have a paralyzed little dachshund that suffers from chronic UTI's. The last 5 months have been one after the other. We try 2+ weeks of antibiotics, he'll get 'better', and then a week off the antibiotics and the infection starts to flare up again.
ACV did not work. He was on it for five days.
Sea salt did not work. He was on it for four days. Excessive drinking and peeing were the only result.
He has pure cranberry powder mixed into his food. Not helping.
He has yogurt every night (and has for years). The acidophilus has not prevented or help the current problem.
Going to try Vitamin C and then iodine (per suggestions read) before I take him in for his umpteenth vi$it to the vet for this problem. Any other suggestions??
FYI - he is 14.5 yrs old and I express his urine three times a day. He also suffers from alopecia. (he's a 'blue' dachshund. Lots of thyroid problems. Hmmm, maybe the iodine is the route to try first?)
