Huh. I never thought of that. She doesn't have super long hair. She's an Australian Shepherd mix and has a shorter coat than one of them.. Luckily, she's over it. Still on the anti-biotics, but the doctor said her urine looks clean.

If she got an itch or something on her back side, she may have scooted her bottom on the ground and moved fecal matter where it could have caused this problem. Does she have long fur? Poo can get matted in the fur real easily too. I think that is how Sasha got her UTI.

Gee, I don't know. I have gotten UTI's for no apparent reason. Perhaps some fecal matter got into her urinary tract. I have no idea. I suppose it could just be in her nature. My friend's dog is prone to bladder stones, like kidney stones, only in the bladder and it is in her nature, but she also can't eat certain foods or treats. I'd ask your vet. Glad she is doing better and the blood is gone!

She's still urinating more than normal, but I haven't seen any blood for a few days. She felt much better after getting some of those pain pills. Just wish I knew how she contracted it. How do dogs get it? My mom used to tell me that using bubble baths gave you bladder infections. (No Mister Bubble in our house!)

Yes, Glad you were able to see the vet. Sasha had problems with that too. The vet had us get cranberry tablets to use in conjunction with the amoxicylin.

Por Baby! I take it that it was unrelated to the chinese? Hope she is feeling well again soon! Good thing your vet has Sat. hours!

Unfortunately, it turns out she had a raging bladder infection. Friday evening, I discovered blood in her urine. Luckily, our vet has Saturday hours. So, she's on Rimadyl and Amoxicillin. Thanks for all the good thoughts.

Happy New Year (depending on location)

Kirsten-- Glad she is doing better too! Jack doesn't handle any type of pasta well, so maybe it was the noodles? It never had uriary effects, but has made him vomit. We avoid hot dogs, pastas and anything like the above mentioned! They told us to use hot dogs for training and he vomits every time and so he has only had a couple bites in his life! Is all well now?

Thanks GRAMMACATHY! She seems to be doing a little better. She lasted the whole night before asking to go out. She probably just had a "rumbly tummy" as we say around our house.

I have had two dogs with severe wheat allergies. It could be the wheat, the soy, or even the onions. We are not suppose to feed our dogs onions. It could also be unrelated. If it is not better, call the vet and ask them. Please let us know how she is doing.

So true, did you hear about that dog that ate the Christmas lights? At least my dog has never eaten non-food items!

I have two dog, one is so sensitive I can't give her bread and peanut butter without a problem. The other can (and has) eaten cardboard boxes.

I don't know of anything in Chinese, per se, but I'll guess there was onion and that can cause stomach problems..

Last night when I fed my girls - two beautiful 14 year old Aussie Shepherd/Catahoula mixes - my mom gave me some Chinese food to supplement their dinner. It was vegetable fried noodles. It was the noodles, water chestnuts, other veggies. Well, one of the girls has been having urinary problems since then.

Anyone ever have problems feeding their dogs leftover Chinese food? Is there something I should have been aware of? It didn't seem to affect the other dog. They're sisters.

Thanks!
