I would like to know about using the herb for my little 12 Lbs. Shih Tzu. She has chronic urinary tract problems. I am currently using UTI free. It seems to be working but she still is licking her vulva, I feel she still has some pain. I want to try Uva Ursi, along side the UTI free and see if it would help.Any information you can help me with I would appreciate. I'm tired of antibiotics that strip her urinary tract and it starts al over again.
It is a powerful herb and I recommend it. But use with cautious.
Yesterday I started to have UTI around 4pm, by 7pm, it was like having to pee every 5 mins, the void was a nice feeling but once it it was over, the pain was shooting upwards. Come to think of it, the bad feeling started 2 days before, with a pain down below. I ease the pain with a hot bean bag. Anyway, I started taking Uva Ursi pills right away (Nature's Way) 480mg each pill. I took 3 pills and after 6 hours, the effect came. I was finally able to sleep from around 3am until 9am. My husband suffered from the same thing, probably a lot more serious, taking 8 bouts of antibiotics, and he is still suffering. I am very hopeful, because after taking only 3 pills, the frequency to pee was much reduce. The urge to pee is terrifying, because of the pain that is sure to follow, like ripping up your guts from down below. I have to say that the duration of pain is shorter by just a little, but because I don't have the urge to pee every 5 minutes, I don't have to suffer the pain so often. I have taken another 3 pills after breakfast, and so far the frequency to pee stays less frequent. I will write again to report on my progress. Thanks to nature.
