Bladder Infection

This past weekend, I was having problems peeing; I had to go constantly. Mommy noticed this and then noticed that my urine was slightly pinkish. We went to the vet today and she suspected I had a bladder infection, but wanted a urine sample to confirm it. So the veternary assistants walked me around their office carrying a ladle to catch my urine -- I thought this was so weird that I didn't pee for them. Mommy had to collect my urine when we got home. The funny thing was that Daddy was totally squeamish about it -- you would think that a man who picks up my poop would have no problems collecting my urine. Noooo! He was totally grossed out by the whole thing -- MEN!

So the vet said I had bacteria in my urine and started me on antibiotics. And I have to start on heartworm medication as well, not to mention continue with my flea medication (I only did my heartworm thing once-a-year in Ketchikan, and we didn't even bother with flea/tick medicine up there). I think I need some compensation for having to take so much medication . . . like a cookie!

Frances - you do deserve at least one cookie per medication. Should I write up a "prescription" and send it to your parents?!

You totally needs a cookie! One cookie for every time you gets a medicine!

Hope you gets better soon - there seems to be a bladder infection epidemic in the bloggie world!

A cookie, Frances, honey, you need more than A cookie. You need a whole bunch of cookies. One for every medication you have to take. That's my rule.
