    I questioned my vet about supplemental Vitamin C, cranberry, and probiotics and he agreed that all could help. Since this is such a small town, I’ve decided to put Jada on the S.O. short-term and also add Vit C, cranberry and probiotics that I’ll order online. Then in about 8-10 weeks I’m going to take her to one of the larger towns that is 1 to 1-1/2 hours away that has larger veterinary practices and have her tested again and hopefully be able to get better advice on her condition. I love living in this beautiful small town but the downside is limited care for my pets, as well as for me. Thanks for your support and suggestions.

    I finally got the results. pH is 8.5, Protein 1+, struvite crystals: 2-3, Amorphous Phosphate crystals: 2-3m, no bacteria, no UTI.

    I live in a very small town in southwest Utah and there is only one veterinarian. Coming originally from Chicago it’s a far cry from getting results right away. I will go to their office tomorrow to pick up a copy.

    Unfortunately the vet didn’t call today and so I wasn’t able to get a copy of the lab results. I always add some canned food to Jada’s kibble anyway because she’s kind of a fussy eater and I add a little fresh boiled chicken on top as well. Also include some broth or water. Currently I feed Jada Wellness Core grain-free. Plus, she has access to the back yard most of the day except for nighttime so that is not a problem. I’m anxious to see just what the lab results are and hopefully I’ll be able to pick them up tomorrow. Thanks for your help, too, Inkedmarie 🙂

    Thank you for the great information. I’ll go online later and order some of those. I’ll repost Jada’s test results when I get back home tonight. Thanks, again, for all of your help!!

    Where do you get the supplements? Are they available online? I’d also read that giving cranberry, Vit C and probiotics can help.

    I guess I was a little premature in posting. I’m picking up the vet’s report today and I’ll post that later.
