These wipes are keeping my Pug UTI free!
October 30, 2016
I like these wipes better than the Douxo brand - these wipes are thinner & more wet, perfect for my intended usage. I'm using them for my girl Pug's juvenile vulvar area (meaning her vulva never descended as she aged & it's inside a little loose fold of skin). She had a horrible UTI & it cost almost $4000 to clear it up. No antibiotic worked (tried 4), so after 3 urine cultures showing antibiotic-resistant bacteria of all kinds, my vet brought out the big guns & that super strong antibiotic caused her to go into renal failure. She really needs a hoo-hoo lift (to get rid of the pocket of skin her vulva is residing in), but she's not a good candidate for surgery due to lung issues. I got these wipes as a last resort, thinking that I could wipe that whole area every night & hoping - PRAYING - that they would keep the area clean of bacteria & yeast. Well, so far, they are working fabulously! I've had her urine tested 3x since the "incident" & these are keeping her UTI free! I'm so grateful, because we thought we were going to lose her & I don't know that she'd live through another bout of that. These wipes are thin, perfectly wet, pleasingly scented & do EXACTLY what they say they are going to do. With 50 in the jar, they are a better deal than the Douxo brand as well. I have cuts all over my hands & these do NOT sting my raw skin, so I know they aren't uncomfortable for her sensitive area. I've used them on my Frenchie's face folds, too. They don't bother the skin at all & clear up any redness or irritation fast.
****Update 8/26/2017: Still UTI free so far, only thing I've added is Cranberry D-Mannose Urinary Support found here on Amazon (follow this link: https://www.amazon.com/Cranberry-DMannose-Urinary-Tract-Support/dp/B00FPZFNBQ/ref=sr_1_11?s=pet-supplies&ie=UTF8&qid=1503802959&sr=1-11&keywords=cranberry+supplement+for+dogs), as the D-Mannose changes the lining of the bladder, not allowing the bacteria to embed into the bladder wall. I hope this helps anyone who is in the same boat I was!****
