Thank you for the link, Alison, and Barb - wow, you guys could be kidney sisters! That is very interesting - something to ask them about at...drumroll...

Cornell. Whew. With a lot of help from a lot of people, BDBH is going to try the laser ablation surgery (I think/pretty sure).

BDBH takes in dogs knowingly that have special needs, when they can take care of those needs. This was a surprise! So we are working on stuff before we can set up an appointment. And she will have to come back to my vet to get a bladder tap again (that took a couple of days of trying! all her urine was in the vagina!) a week before surgery to make sure she has no infection. BUT - we have hope for her. I truly was not sure - but thought she deserved to be known. And that maybe we can have yet another good story here on this board. smile

MJ - she did have urine burns when she came up. I cannot even imagine.

Thanks for reading about her!

Yes, very glad - we are getting updates from Cornell - it will be this vet:
http://www.vet.cornell.edu/faculty/flanders/ who will see her, and then probably keep her overnight and do the surgery, once we are able to schedule it. He is not the surgeon that Ava and Anna had, but I have heard MANY wonderful things about him, and have seen him while sitting in the waiting room there and he seems very kind.

On a side note - how do I get the pee smell out of a plastic crate. It is not noticeable to others, but I can smell it, and my dogs can smell it. I try to avoid chemicals for cleansers, but will do whatever it takes to get that smell out of there!

Jean - white vinegar or hydrogen peroxide should work. Baking soda is another good thing to use for odors.

I'm very glad sweet Keelin will get her surgery and keeping all fingers crossed that it solves her problem...

Okay, I will try the hydrogen peroxide - can I mix that with baking soda? I used the vinegar, which seems to work for most urine, but this is extra special stinky! It smells like dirty straw.

Thank you - yes, fingers tight because we want this to do it for her. Thanks again!

Pictures from her foster!

All dressed up and too tired from playing to go anywhere!


This is much better than being tied to a tree in the mud!

She is so beautiful. How great that BDBH is helping yet another health-compromised dog. wub

For stubborn odors, I mix baking soda and white vinegar and them let it soak for a while.

Yeah - it was a surprise - so we are working on it!

Okay - so I can mix all three things into a super paste without blowing anything up right?

rofl You might get some fizzing action, but I don't think that's an explosive mixture!!

Just an FYI... White vinegar and baking soda make a great drain cleaner too. Pour one box baking soda into your sink (the opposite side of the garbage disposal), 1 cup white vingar and follow with 2 qts. boiling water. It really makes the sink smell fresh. I'm a smeller too Jean - and it's driving me nuts with 8 animals in the house. I swear I can smell animals when I walk in, but no one else does...
