Knowing if Urinary Tract Infection

I have a sneaking suspicion theres somethig wrong. What are the symptoms? What is the treatment?
The only thing I have to go on is a very strong Amoniac smell. Also One keeps pulling the towel over so he can lay on the cool plastic floor like he has an upset stomach or bladder and it cools him off.

Stephanie, I don't think 7 days will be long enough. UTI's can be a tricky one to keep from recurring if you don't medicate long enough. UTI's respond very quickly to meds and give the rat some relief but I would say at least 14 days on abs should take care of it for good.
