You're not alone Lucie is now 17 weeks old and has been suffering with them for the past 10 weeks.

She is now on her 4th round of antibiotics and 3rd different type of antibiotics.

We has to have cystocentisis I think it's called where they use a needle to get a sterile urine sample right from her bladder. We have also paid for more urine tests than I can count ones we've obtained from Lucie ourselves.

Usually by the 3rd day she's off antibiotics is when it reoccurs again. Our vet has told us she should grow out of this and our breeder says there have been no issues with any of her litter mates.

We've about reaches our limit with this whole thing but the vet says to try the medicine for 3 weeks instead of 10 days.

We love our Lucie dearly and will do whatever is needed to ensure she gets rid of it once and for all.

So you're not alone and don't lose hope it's frustrating to no end but keep hope something will work!!!
