HELP - My 15 week old puppy has 2nd bladder infection (cystitis)
I am new to this forum. My puppy, Zoey is a 15 week old GSD. I brought her home at 10 weeks and immediately she displayed issues when urinating. She was drinking lots of water and only urinating very little when taking outside as if she was not emptying her bladder. Took her to the vet and determined she had a UTI. Put on first round of antibiotics for 10 days. She seemed to improve after a few days on the meds but so hard to determine as she is a puppy and potty training. Well, a few days after antibiotics stopped she was peeing all over the house and when going outside, only urinating very little. I took a sample back to the vet and sure enough she has another infection. The vet told me that she most likely has cystitis which means she can have these re-occurring infections up until her first period.
Has anyone had this issue with their pups? Any advice? I am so worried about her. I am also worried that it may be something even worse.
How do you potty train a puppy that has bladder infections? I would have to sit outside with her 24/7.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
