Been to vet, dog still peeing in house

Poor Zeus was treated for a UTI a few months ago but just recently he started peeing in the house again. He is 5 months old but he was going outside just fine. We went back to the vet and they said he has crystals in his urine and needed to go on this AD food for a month. He also has a rash on his belly which is being treated with Clavamox and an anti-bacterial/fungal shampoo. He's been on the food for two weeks and is getting worse. I don't know what to do for him. I caught the poor guy one day whimpering and walking a circle around the kitchen island and peeing. He knows he is supposed to go outside but he just can't hold it. He has to go at least once every 30 min, sometimes every 5 min. What is going on? Please help me!

Have they done any blood panels on Zeus, Cnied? Sounds like there's something else going on there. Did you get a definite diagnosis on the rash before Zeus was started on Clavamox?

Poor Zeus! Has he been prescribed anything? prednisone perhaps? this will make a dog drink alot and pee alot? Also what are you feeding your pup before the change to this vet food?

I would ditch the vet food first off and try to find a good quality kibble preferably with no grains and fillers. Alot of food is full of garbage to put it blunt. I have a lab that was on vet foor for 6 yrs and once I educated myself in dog food ingrediants and then changed him over to a good food all of his problems went away. Ear infections, skin infections and always on prednisone and its not good for them!

Oh and welcome by the way! would love to see some pics of Zeus!

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

I've used "Cranmax" (super-duper cranberry pills) with Ceili and Bridie very effectly over the years. It was the ONLY thing that worked consistently with Ceili who had chronic UTI's as a pupster and doglette.
