Victory: Photography Project — 61
Beginning in January 2014, I started a weekly photography project with my muse, Victory! I will continue to share this project on the blog this year! My goal is to document all of Victory’s changes, while preserving fleeting moments and memories, while capturing moments of our everyday.
Victory’s urinary tract infection is back with a vengeance. We spent most of Saturday at the vet’s office, which required two visits to the vet in order to get a sterile urine sample. Fortunately, the vet was able to get a sterile urine sample (unlike last time), and we are awaiting the urine culture results in order to determining how to best treat Victory’s infection. In the interim, the vet did another exam and took an x-ray of our fur girl, shown below to check for abnormalities and stones. Fortunately, Victory’s insides look healthy; there are no bladder or kidney stones present; and her internal functions look good. The vet was able to easily review her x-ray because Victory is slender.
Victory is on another round of antibiotics along with this supplement. Part of Victory’s ‘lady parts’ are recessed, which may be contributing to her infections — a breeding ground for bacteria. We are going to clip furs and continue to use baby wipes to help keep her clean and everything hygienic around her ‘lady parts’ in the hope that this will help mitigate future infections. If the infections continue to occur frequently, the vet recommended possible surgery — we really hope never to reach this point. None of us were happy to be at the vet; however, Victory was really good and cooperative through it all.
Here is another view of Victory.
Here is a happy and smiling Victory enjoying some fresh air!
Sorry to hear you are dealing with another UTI. I had to laugh when I saw the “inside” view of Miss V! She is beautiful inside AND out!
Victory is a beautiful dog.
We spent Monday evening at the vet’s office with our boy cat, Snowball. He too has a UTI. It must be a bad week for our four-legged friends this week. I hope Victory heals quickly and you get good answers from the vet.
