My Rotti has been treated twice so far for e coli of the bladder.

Have a culture done and sensitivity....what ever antibiotic shows on the sensitivity test as being the best overall to fight it..go for it...the treatment will be at 3 weeks. Every infection needs to be "fitted" so to speak , with e coli it is imperative you use the best treatment to cure the infection. E coli bacteria can also infect humans.
