Thanks for all the ideas, and support. My vet said stay away from the urinary tract stuff (like Foster and Smith) as it can mess with the alkaline of the urine and possibly make matters worse. If she does have a hooded vulva (my vet has not looked at her yet just the groomer) then that would not help anyway.
This is her 4th UTI in less than a year, and she just went off antibiotics on 12/2 from the last one. Yes we did a urinalysis at that time and she was free of infection, bacteria etc. So if we can even slow them down I will be very happy the antibiotics for these is EXPENSIVE.
At least she is a good girl about letting us work around her sensitive areas. Every dog presents new issues. I do know now that any dog I have from here forward (I always have females) I will have the vet examine for a hooded vulva before her spay, and take care of it then if necessary. I can't do surgery on Teddi now unless absolutely necessary. With her THR, we have already spent a lot of money on her, and I doubt her insurance would cover that surgery either. Probably another "genetic" condition.
