Day 37 - 39: Return of the UTI?
It seems like Butter's UTI may have returned 😔
I saw drips of blood as she peed, just like how she first had UTI.
Instead of visiting the vet, I've decided to take up some suggestions from Rick for the next two weeks and see how Butter reacts to it. He suggested the following:
- Increase acidophilus and bifidus back to 2 capsules.
- Increase wild body to 3 capsules.
- One capsule of enzymes before she sleep.
- Feed watermelon.
- Add raw coconut oil to meals.
- Half teaspoon of apple cider vinegar to her meals.
- Feed raw coconut water.
- Add cilantro or parsley to her meals.
Most of it are what we've been doing, so it should be pretty easy. I started increasing the amount this morning. I've also bought some pH indicator strips to test Butter's urine pH values. It used to be at 9.0 on 15 July 2017 when she was cleared of her UTI. It was still high, hence her UTI returning I guess.
Her pH value was at 7.0 - 8.0 today in the evening.
These days we've also bought some goat milk yogurt for Butter to try out since we intend to feed her that together with a lot of fruits for her birthday. She definitely loves it! Her face infection seem to be getting worse with her entire face being red and swollen, but we're cleaning it everyday and her acne is slowly getting better.
