Robin, recurring UTIs

Yesterday was the 3rd time this year I've had to take Robin in because of a UTI. He was having difficulty urinating They give him an AB, and he's good for a while. then it comes back 1 vet suggested it might be stress related...

Hi bluemilk! Haven't seen you in a while. I'm sorry Robin's got another UTI. I can't remember how old he is.

What antibiotic did they give him for each UTI? It could be that it wasn't effective for the type of bacteria he had, or that it wasn't a long enough course.

Did they do a urine culture & sensitivity test, or just a urinalysis?

Hey Kurt.

Sorry Robin isn't feeling well. You might talk to your vet about the type of food to feed him. The vet may try to get you to do a special prescription food, but you don't necessarily have to do that. A good grain-free food, especially wet foods, would be good for him right now. Try to stay away from cheaper grocery store brands that have corn or wheat listed as ingredients.
