Buddy's Beat

Spending the night at the vet's

Well pups, last Thursday I finished my last round of antibiotics and everything was looking good. Good until last night when I became very agitated and needed to go outside to pee every 30-45 minutes. Mom and I had a bad night.

Mom made a vet appointment for me first thing in the morning. She discussed a lot of things with the vet and then left me there to have the tests done. I will spare you the gory details of what I had done, but I had samples taken from my bladder and prostate and blood drawn and these were sent for cytology, culture and sensitivity and a complete blood panel done.

The cytology and blood panel came back this afternoon and the blood panel showed that I do not have any major systemic infection or a problem with my liver or kidneys. The cytology of my prostate gland showed lots and lots of mucus and lots and lots of bacteria rods. This points to a bad infection in my prostate, which is surprising as I am so young and neutered!

I will be spending the night at the vet's. I refused to eat, drink, pee or poop all day at the vet's and this was a concern to them. Otherwise, I was giving all the ladies kisses and was being adored by everyone. I will be started on another round of antibiotics tonight and mom will pick me up sometime tomorrow.

I am happy to be home! Yesterday I went from now peeing at all to peeing lots at the vet's. I had several accidents over night and the staff gave me a bath this morning to get me ready for when mom came to pick me up. I eating much better today and drinking lots. Now we wait for the results of the culture and sensitivity tests. Mom has been reading up on prostate infections in male dogs and she doesn't like what she is reading. Mommy had one of her bad headaches today, so after we got home, we both laid down in the den and had a nice snooze. Thank you for all the good wishes. I know they helped!

Mommy just got a call from the vet regarding my culture and sensitivity results. It appears that nasty E. coli has moved from my bladder to my prostate. There is a refill waiting for me at the vet's and this time I will be on medication for a total of 8 weeks. We certainly hope that this will wipe out that nasty infection once and for all.
