Aloha! You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin
I'm sorry to have to tell you that vets on this site aren't allowed to prescribe medicines for the pets we discuss. Our governing bodies don't consider our conversation to be a proper owner--pet-vet relationship.

I can tell you, however, that presumptive therapy for a simple urinary tract infection might be addressed by the broad spectrum potentiated amoxicillin (amoxicillin + clavulanate) or an antibiotic in the fluoroquinolone class such as enrofloxacin. These antibiotics should be administered for 10-14 days and 2 days after the course of antibiotics have been completed, Geogina's urine should be checked to make sure that her urinary tract has been sterilized.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
