Everything still is going good but one slight backstep.  My baby girl started to get a uti.  I caught it early enough by knowing her peeing habit.  She is on a leash or i am with her at all times.  So when she started peeing a lot more than the normal 1 time or 2 times I started to wonder.  Then today it was 3 times and the last time nothing came out.  Positive notes though, lung fields still sound clear, no other lumps or bumps, felt tummy no lumps there either.  So that’s an A+

Called the vet before I had to work and got the only open appointment this weekend.  I think they squeezed us in knowing she is on cytoxin & a cancer patient.  Well they took the urine sample.  Did the strip test (for blood) nothing showed up.  When they spun the urine down there were very few red blood cells, lots of white cells & bacteria.  So needless to say Ms Sugar Bear is on antibiotics.  Clavamox/combo with something I can’t remember what but I can tell you it was $90.00.  We will recheck next week at our scheduled Metronomics appointment.   The good thing is that so far Dr Truax (Dr Boyer’s day off) he did Sassy’s amputation thinks this is a normal uti and not from the Cytoxin but we will discuss further if no improvement by next week.

So not only added the Clavamox right now but I added a cranberry pill to the regimine.  Cranberrry is good for uti.

    How can I possibly comment when I have to keep scrolling back up to look at mug? Wait…be right back….

    Yeah, ‘thought so….look at that expression…..if that isn’t a “Humph…this ain’t nuttin’ and I ain’t worried ’bout nuttin’…humph!”

    Now we know the classy Miss Sugar Bear has a much better command of the English language, but she clearly just considers this uti thing nothing more than an annoying fly that the a tibiodics will shoo away:-) 🙂

    You wouldn’t even be giving it a second’s thought either if it were not for the crap disease. Really glad you were so diligent and caught it early so she can get immediate relief.

    Wait…..gotta go look at that mug again………—ok…back.

    It’s really good news that everything else is “status quo”. This girl is a strong and sturdy Super Star!! You’re mail g up your own set of rules and we LOVE that!

    And we love you both!! And we love love, love that face!
