Aloha! You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin
I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. A simple bacterial cystitis in a female dog is addressed with an appropriate systemic antibiotic for 10-14 days prescribed by Candy's vet. A broad spectrum antibiotic thought to be effective may be chosen or one can be specifically chosen after a bacterial culture and sensitivity has been performed. Two days after the course of antibiotics is completed, Candy's urine should be rechecked to make sure that her urinary tract has been sterilized.
There are no reliably effective over the counter remedies or home treatments for this kind of cystitis in dogs. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
