My poor little pee-machine...

I took Ziggi to a new vet today, because I have been unhappy with the one we have repeatedly seen for him excessive peeing issue.

Back when I fist got him at 5 1/2 months I thought he had a urinary tract infection, UTI, so I took him to the vet. She gave be a bunch of excuses like, "he is just a boy, and they never fully empty their bladders" "he is just a puppy, they have accidents" and a couple others. Well numerous time since then I have mentioned the problem remains, and he seems to be less and less continent.

So at the advice of a friend, I took him to a new vet and had a Complete Blood Panel and Urine Analysis done, and oddly I was relieved to find out...he has a borderline moderate/severe UTI. I am so mad I trusted my old vet, I am more mad at myself, I knew something was not right, and I feel bad that he has had to live with this problem for so long. I am just happy that after a nice strong round of antibiotics we might be able to get this crate training thing mastered after all!

Moral of the story, no matter how much you "like" your vet, if you don't feel comfortable with their diagnosis...seek a second opinion.

i wouldnt be embarassed we trust that our vets know what they are doing take their word for it. If anyone should be embarassed that it went on for so long is your old vet they should have known better. You did the right thing for Ziggy and he is on the road to getting better now

Poor Ziggy well now he should be better.

I didn't like what the vet told me about Mikado's heart trouble that I took my boy to all SEVEN vets in the area. Unfortunatly they all said the same thing. I always get a second opinion but don't feel bad Sydney atleast Ziggy is getting treated now and in a couple of weeks he will be all better.

im glad to hear that you found out his problem! Do you think that some of his temperament issues has anything to do with him being uncomfortable for so long?

I had to shop around vets for quite some time when I got our dogs... Alot of vets look at us "youngins" and think "they have no idea what I'm talking about" or they don't personally care about the breed that we deal with ... It took 3 "wrong vets" to find our "right 4th vet". Neela was poisoned around 4 months of age ( I woke up and there was a severe change in health from the night before) and i couldn't get through to my regular vet (he was a mobile vet) at the time... I took her to the local low cost vet Maverick...she was bleeding from her rectum, throwing up white foam, not eating, and seizing... they ran a stool sample first on Neela and the results came back positive for whip worms... sent me home with old fashioned wormer that they didn't even make anymore (a power form that was to be mixed in with the food...which she didn't eat!)... She got through it on her own after about 5 days... On the third day my vet calls me back and says "she must've gotten into something because they don't do all of that with worms." I droppped both vets from my "consideration" list immediately... 3 days to get back to a patient for an emergency?! and sending a poisoned patient home with wormer!? (this was durring neelas healing process for her ears... I went back for my next "wrapping" session and I met the vet who cropped the ears for the first time... I liked how i was treated by the staff, and especially the vet because she listened to my concerns and she acknowledged that I know what the heck I'm talking about with dogs! She has always been willing to work with me to find out what problems neela has. (my other two are healthy as a horse! lol)

I really don't know for sure, but I would bet that some of his behavioral issues have developed from carrying this condition on as a daily routine.

YOu did the right thing Syd. Yay The persistance of pee paid off! I am sorry you are feeling guilty but your little boy still adores you within an inch of his last breath! You did the right thing now and so go on! I am glad he is better now. ;>
