"I did not go back to Vet 1 because my dog passed fishy urine before the completion of the medication as compared to Dr Daniel's" the lady said to me today when I followed up on her dog, a 7-year-old female, not spayed Maltipoo treated by me 7 days ago.
I was Vet 3 and since the dog was having medication, she could not comment on my failure or success after consultation dated Dec 31, 2015 (video).
"At least Dr Daniel (who was Vet 2) had medication which stopped the fishy urine smell during the course of treatment," the lady laughed. Dr Daniel had done a urine test on Dec 8 and had recommended Urinary S/O to acidify the urinary pH which was 9. Blood was 3+. However the owner claimed that she was not told not to feed the dog with other kinds of food.
So, the urinary S/O still gave a urine pH of 9.0, nitrite
This time, I needed an X-ray done as the dog had a very painful anterior abdomen. She had dysuria, haematuria, vulval swelling but no vomiting. Fishy urine again.
Time will tell whether the dog will be passing fishy urine after this consultation. Now he is still on medication.
