Default Urinary Stuff

So, Gabby basically has an inverted vulva. The end points up when she's standing normally. This contributes to UTI issues. So far I've been keeping a very close eye on her, I "wipe" as needed, and keep the hair trimmed pretty close so there's less likely to be residue on the hair. The problem is that urine then sits at the end of her urinary tract.

I have been doing SG Berry Balance on and off and we haven't had any more UTIs but it worries me still. She didn't show many signs when she had a severe infection when I got her (other than peeing blood you know).

Anyone else have experience with this? I will likely run a U/A on her again soon just to make sure nothing is developing but, it worries me!
