NEED HELP w my 6 month old pup...

Hey all,

Not sure what to do at this point... 2 problems... I have a 6 month old dobie pup Female.She was 100% house trained untill about 3 weeks ago. I brought her to the vet about a week ago and the bet put her on a round 7 days of aintibiotics.. thinkin she had a uti. she was having prob 2 accidents p day for over a week in the house. keep in mind i take her out about every 2 , 2 1/2 hrs to pee. done the aintibiotics and she seems to be better but still having accidents. (she knows to ring bells on door when shes gotta go out) seems like she just either doesnt care or cant hold it and just goes . Other issue is looks like she has localized mange around her eyes.. hair thinning.. im getting a shampoo for this from my groomer.. but is this something i should be worried about getting real bad? its very minimal now..

Thanks as always

Did they send out a urine culture if they suspected a UTI? Usually a course of antibiotics lasts at least 2 weeks, and sometimes longer depending on the infection. Her accidents could still be due to a lingering infection.

As far as the hairloss around her eyes, have your vet do a skin scraping and derm work-up to determine the cause so you can treat it appropriately. I would be careful with using a medicated shampoo around her eyes.
