This may sound like a weird question, but I suffer from recurrent UTIs. In fact, I have an appoitment w/ a Urologist next week to see how the bacteria keeps invading. I need answers as to why I keep getting them even though I take all precautions (cotton uw, Cranberry, water ect) As for my question, I was watching Jay Leno and he made a joke that doctors have linked UTI w/ dog owners. (punch line: they must be petting the wrong end!) The link makes sense if you think about it. My dog is taken outside walking thru who-knows-what when doing her business (where other dogs have gone). She comes inside sits on the couch, bed, ect (she is a small dog) and voila! bacteria everywhere. I also give her weekly baths, but she has long hair which I am sure is a magnet. Has anyone else heard of this new study?
