|Amy Hall, DVM|
Dr. Amy Hall, Georgetown Animal Clinic, did a great job of 'splaining and we walked out with the prescription and the special food - no muss, no fuss. She was very apologetic that the food is so expensive. We even got a promise that the Clinic would buy back any unused cans.
On reflection, Maggie may have come to us with a UTI. The things I'd read about house training all said 3-4 weeks of crate training would do it. Right. As I said before, no way I'm getting up and taking her out every 3 hours at night. I have enough trouble sleeping. Besides, she was peeing 3-4 times an hour during the day. I thought that was too much but she was so young and she'd had surgery. I hope this is the extent of the "future problems" our vet mentioned might result from such an early spay.
On a lighter note, Maggie is back today - full bore and 200 mph. Amazing what a difference 24 hours on an antibiotic and $2.50 a day special dog food will make.
