Hi Big Lucy,
My heart goes out to you.....my lab/rotty will be 14 in January. 6 mos. ago she started with the same exact symptoms as yours. We took her to the Vet and it was an E-Coli Urinary Tract infection. After 3 courses of Antibiotics and $3000 she still had the infection. I used to work for a M.D. Homeopath and he recommended D Mannos a natural product $19. IT WORKED in just a few days!!!!
She was diagnosed at 11mos with Hip Dysplasia and the regular vet wanted to do Hip Replacement...no way!! So I found a Homeopathic Vet that did acupuncture and body work....I have had her on supplements throughout her life and although she is slowing down, still does very well. I've been told that Urinary problems occur frequently as our dogs age.
I feel for you and all of us who have animals. I can't bear the thought of losing her EVER.
I'm hoping it will be an easy problem and Harper is better soon!!!
