Hello,Our female german shep. puppy has had a bladder infection since we brought it home 6 wks ago.First they tried amoxicillian did nothing.Then they drew urine straight from her bladder sent it to a lab results said it was an ecoli infection they prescribed Macrodantin for 10 days.She was doing great 2 days off the med back to the same.They gave us another script for a longer time just wandering if anyone else has delt with this type of infection and if it takes a wile to clear up Thank you.

Did they so a sensitivity when they cultured it? It's possible that she's not on the right antibiotic and/or not on it long enough. It's also possible that she's got some weird anatomical problem that's causing her to reinfect.

Not sure about the sensetivity but I am going to run this script out and if it's not cleared up I am going to ask to be reffered to another vet.She eats and plays and is putting on weight and shes not going every 5min when she was on the meds she actually could go 3.5 hrs without going.
