  1. How long has she been doing this?
  2. Are you noticing any urinary changes in terms of frequency, accidents, blood etc?
Customer reply replied 5 years ago.
She has been doing this for about two weeks. I have not noticed changes in frequency of urination. I don't see any blood in her urine, nor is she having accidents at home. She will sit down in the middle of a walk and lick, sometimes after urinating.

Both the urinary tract and the genital tract meet at the external vulva in the dog. Licking here indications some type of discomfort. This could be from urinary tract infection, stones, vaginitis, skin infection, etc.

 

I recommend having her evaluated by your regular vet. I would start with a physical exam and sterile urine sample for urinalysis and bacterial culture. While these tests run (can take up to 3-4 days), I would start her on an antibiotic like amoxicillin also. Hopefully the lab results will confirm something as simple as a UTI, and that we are using an appropriate antibiotic. If the urine results are normal, I would move on to imaging of her abdomen using xray or ultrasound.

 

Good luck with your girl!
