    Default Urinary tract infections?

    Hello all, I am wondering what are the signs and symptoms of a urinary tract infection?

    Straining to go pee
    Odor in the urine
    Blood in urine or pink in color

    Meds will be needed.

    Is sporadic urination: not peeing all at once, but small amounts at random times, also a symptom?

    Yes.
    You will need Baytril (animal antibiotic) or Cipro (Human) OR SMZ-TMP.
    If you have the weight and the mg of ONE pill we can dose it for you, unless
    you have a vet that can help.

    Sorry for the repeated question, but I havent got a responce in a while.

    Can anyone suggest where the best place is to buy the antibiotics?

    Also, how to calculate the right dose, how often, and for how long?

    What would be the best/easiest way to administer the meds?

    My squirrel is 8 months old and her weight is about 520g.

    You can purchase them here.
    http://www.calvetsupply.com/category/Oral-Antibiotics
    These are human grade antibiotics. You would want the
    Fish Sulfa Forte or Ciprofloxacin Tablets.


    I would PM "Nancy in New York" who helped me to dose Ember.

    Whatever you do get out of these, make sure to follow up with what you did get and let Nancy know as well.
