I had a detailed conversation re: BHRR's Emma with her Vet today. Her culture & sensitivity results are now in and she has two nasty eastie beasties and as I thought; the cephalexin is not sensitive to all that she is carrying.

So, we have now added Zeniquin 200 mg to her antibiotic regime. She will be on both antibiotics.

AND, we discussed the fact that she is now 2" larger. So, could this one other eastie beastie be the cause? OR, is there something….a mass that was not picked up in the u/s or X-Rays for her bladder was so huge and we also did not x-ray past her rib cage as we were only looking for baby babinos at that time. Other than getting wider in the girth, she has no other changes to her body ie teats.

AND the Vet discussed with us the possibility of uretha incontinence; even though; it is not that common in unspayed females. However; per her Vet and our own agreement; we are going to do the spay first and see if the antibiotics work their magic on her incontinence.

She is totally confused about the housebreaking still. She reminds me quite a bit like BHRR's Windsor in that when he was a baby. 😀 We are working on it!

Her spay is still scheduled for the 29th and I am glad to be giving her this extra time(originally, when she was first brought in; the Vet discussed about doing the spay this week and feels good that it was pushed off as; the results are just in for the C&S and we now know she needs stronger meds) to fight off this UTI.

Donations to her growing Vet Bills can be made in the following ways.

Kanata Animal Hospital (613) 836-2848 and they will take Visa, M/C and AMEX over the phone. They will take Debit or Cash in person at 440 Hazeldean Road in Kanata, Ontario

What she does still need to date are:

1) Packing Blankets/Duvets/Comforters as she does have some sores and is weak with bad hips
2) Puppy Pee Pads as she is still having some incontinence
3) She LOVES the smoked knuckle bones
4) FROMM Wet Canned Dog Food
5) Pinesol
6) Donations towards her Vet Bills that are already substantial regardless if she is pregnant or not
7) Paper Towels
