She did at first but as she has been growing everything is now normal. They found puss pockets all around her vulva bc of the folds around it. Those have cleared up and her vulva looks normal now but we can't shake the UTI. Hoping these new antibiotics do the trick.

andrea04, I'm so sorry to hear that you have the same problems! It helps to know that we are not alone though, and I thank you for sharing your post Hopefully our pups will both be healthy soon! I will try the vitamin C supplement that onyx'girl suggested and UTI-free once it gets here, and of course I'll tell you how and if it works.

Yes, she has a slightly inverted vulva. One of the four vets we visited said they could alter it when she gets spayed, but I really hope she won't have to go through that.

Just a quick update: I gave her a 500mg pill of vitamin C last night and one this morning. As expected, she had loose stool this morning, but she doesn't squat nearly as much as before.

Lucie still has about 10 more days on antibiotics so once she's finished I will provide an update.

And I'm really glad to know we're not alone in this.

How old is your GSD?

I feel the same way! She's five months old, but she had problems since she was eight weeks. What are you feeding her if I may ask?

UTI-Free seems to help! I started giving it to her on Tuesday and she hasn't been squatting since.
