dbullwinkel Posted July 21, 2008 Share Posted July 21, 2008 (edited) I am worried about two of my dogs...Flex my Ig, has lupus. he had been licking his penis to the point of making it bleed. urine (via catheter) showed infection. vet said most likely no stones in urethra since catheter went in easy. she put him on baytril for 10 days. He appeared to be doing better, then starting licking himself again yesterday. ( I saw him a couple times) Only when he is alone, though. He is a very attached to his people. This morning he was licking when I returned with the other two from their walk. the fur on the back of back (near the bottom) was raised a bit and he appeared to be walking a bit hunched over.....Vet said might need x-ray. I also caught him scooting on my bed (UGGG) this morning. He is fine now. In the meantime, Missy my 9 year old grey has been on Amox. since the 14th. for uti. She is still straining to pee more after her initial 2 pees. On her walk this morning I saw blood (there was blood in both of their urine tests). Called vet back..and went in to pick up baytril for her. she is being seen by a different vet in same practice. also might need x-ray. I am waiting for a call back from Flex's vet regarding him...and I am going out of town this afternoon overnite...will have company tomorrow until afternoon. Does it sound like Flex needs to get right in. or would Tuesday evening be ok? He is eating and drinking fine, no vomit. I am trying to get these dogs healthy before I go in for surgery on the 31st. I won't be driving for a while.... Advice please Also..would it be considered rude if I stuck with one vet for both dogs?
