So I decided I wanted some privacy tonight. My boyfriend had company over so I went up to the spare bed room. There is a bed and a sofa in here. I was on the sofa (which is right next to the bed atm) so I called the dogs up on the bed to snuggle with me a bit. Even the cat jumped up. So we're all just relaxing. Clover jumps off to go sniff something then comes back. Jumps on to the bed, scratches a bit at the sheets, then pees! I couldn't believe it! She hasn't had any house training problems at all??? Why would she think a bed is a good place to go?? Especially when she was just laying down on it.
I JUST had her to the vet today. I'm not sure if you remember my recent post about the marks on her belly? Well they started to come back and she's been licking her vulva like non stop for a while now. The vet didn't really help much I felt....She said we'd try her on some reactine for itching cause she said it probably allergy since she's licking her paws too. She also said to try salmon fish oil tablets or something? Suppose to take away infection? Maybe I remember wrong what she said, she talked a lot. She also suggested mixed vinegar in baby wipes and cleaning her vulva everyday since she has a recessed vulva. She said this is why she's been licking. I'm no vet, but I don't feel this is the reason. I've know about her recessed vulva for a while, and I don't use vinegar I have cleaned it with baby wipes. It hasn't been dirty in several months so I stopped. However the licking is new, and ALL THE TIME. I personally feel there is an infection and shouldn't she get meds?? I had mentioned I wasn't sure if I'd get her shots today if her treatment was too much so I feel she just didnt bother with treatment? I don't have the money but if she is this uncomfortable I'll make it work.
We even talked about UTI. She felt her belly and said it wasn't tender and the area in the vulva was pink which is good, and not a bad red color. She felt it wasn't UTI. Since she just pee'd on the bed right in front of me, I'm now wondering...UTI?
Could it be anything else? I'm a little worried now. I'm taking a pee sample first thing tomorrow morning and dropping it off to see if it is indeed a UTI.
Oh, btw, she still has some of those pustuals (spelling??) I think the vet called it anyway, on her belly. Like what she was treated for last time. They never fully went away which is why i went back thinking I'd get more of that super expensive medication. Can the fish oil actually help this type of thing or should I ask for the medication?
