I cannot believe these vets! One of my puppies had the same problems. She does not have an inverted vulva, just a constant round of UTIs. The vet refused to put her on for longer than 10-14 days, so of course it kept coming back. I found her a new vet, who promptly put her on a six week round of antibiotics. It has been 3 weeks and the UTI has not returned. As a bonus, this vet is very open to holistic remedies and eastern medicine. Probably because so many show and competition people go to him.
This constant barrage of minimal dosing just makes the problem worse in my experience.
I am sorry but it just makes me so angry.
But at least the vet was right about waiting for a heat cycle with anatomical issues. And of course you would never spay while they have an infection.
