This study was carried out on dogs suspected for urinary tract infection at Mumbai Veterinary College, Parel. Nineteen dogs were chosen on the basis of signs and symptoms which included inappetence, hematuria, urine incontinence, fever, stranguria, oliguria and emesis. On the basis of culture and sensitivity reports, the animals were divided into two groups, those sensitive to amoxycillin and clavulanic acid were put in Group I (n=7) and those sensitive to ciprofloxacin were put in the Group II (n=7). The group treated with amoxicillin and clavulanic acid showed 100% recovery and the group treated with ciprofloxacin showed 85.71% recovery as one dog had relapse of symptoms after 14 days.
