11 Year Old Sheltie With Recurring Bladder Infection

Q: My 11 year old sheltie, Cody, is fully recovered from bladder cancer thanks to Protocel but he has a lingering UTI. My vet is alternating Clavimox with Baytril after a few weeks off one or the other (pulse therapy). This does not seem to be working. Can you recommend something to get rid of his UTI and preventing a relapse?

A: Yes, the Pet Pet UTI Prevention Package for Urinary Tract Infections which includes Renelix, Pet UTI Prevention Formula, Notatum and Power Probiotic would be very helpful. Also, using OncoPet for immune support would be advisable to help fight off cancer recurrence  Be sure you are feeding your sheltie a grain-free, hypoallergenic diet. Grains and poultry can contribute to UTIs in some pets.
