Expert:  Dr. Bruce replied 6 months ago.

I'm sorry for my delay. I like that name. That is great that she's eating and drinking well. With the duration of her clinical signs, the most suspicious thing for posturing to urinate in multiple places / straining would be a urinary tract infection. The irritation they feel when they have this makes them feel like they have to urinate all the time. The way this is diagnosed is with a urine evolution. It is typically treated with a course of oral antibiotics. The other big rule out that could be going on is bladder stones and possibly a urethral blockage. When a stone in the bladder starts to pass and gets stuck, it can cause them to try and urinate and not be very successful or with no success. A urinary blockage is a critical situation that needs to be addressed immediately.
