Have Dog Training Questions? Ask a Dog Trainer.
Hi there and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed, internship-trained veterinarian with 10 years experience in general medicine and emergency and critical care medicine and I would be happy to assist you. Please be patient as there may be slight delays in responses as I research your pet's issue.
The most common cause of this is a urinary tract infection. It causes great pain, and can cause them to defecate in the house, too, because they are uncomfortable. I would try to collect a urine sample, or take her to the vet and have them collect a urine sample, and check it for evidence of a UTI as the first step. In the meantime, while you are waiting to see a vet, you can give 1/2 of a baby aspirin every 8 hours (or if you have access to the human drug Tramadol, you can give 1/4 tablet of that every 8 hours) for pain management to see if that helps. UTI's are common in female dogs.
I hope that I have answered your question thoroughly. If you still have questions, please reply. If you feel that I have provided anything less than excellent service, please reply to me first before rating my service and let me know how I can better assist you.

Best of luck.
