There is a pill that is over the counter now, in the US called Uristat. It will help with the pain associated with a UTI, but will not cure it! It also turns the urine a bright orange color and will stain clothing :) http://www.uristat.com/help.htm
I've had the pleasure of having a few UTI's in the past few years, and her symptoms sound similar to what I experienced.
The only thing that will cure a UTI is a round of antibiotics, so make sure that she gets into the Dr ASAP!

And don't forget the water... drink plenty of it.
