And Jacqueline, I do have desitin. I have used it before, when my boar was having issues because of his penis(he was born with it being malformed). I do prefer to use coconut oil, because of it's antiseptic properties.
So, i'm puzzled. I cleaned her last night, around 5. She has not had any dribbling since, and there are no visible signs at all. I was sure i would wake up and have to clean her this morning, but she seems totally fine. WHAT! I don't know what is happening. So...it's been 19 hours and she doesn't have any visible signs of the UTI. I'm just going to give her the medication still...see how that goes...

If the symptoms are easing up, maybe wait on the AB and get her to the vet when things calm down next week? Vet visit really is the only way to confirm an infection, determine the best course of medication, and rule out any other possible causes for her leaky bottom.

Mammary tumors are rarely cancerous, and as surgeries go, are pretty easily removed. They don't usually have to cut into the abdominal cavity, so the recovery time is pretty short. I'd just call around and find the best exotic vet surgeon you can locate, and make an appointment.

I'm hopeful the Bactrim will work and you won't have to run down mid-week. Be prepared for it and plan for it, though, and then it won't happen. ;-)
Keep us posted.
