Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Thank you. Because she is seen about every two months by her vet, I know that it is either her kidneys or hopefully a UTI. She is eating, playing, walking fine; but urinating in the middle of the room and can't stop when I tell her no.
If I bring in a urine sample, is there a timeframe that they don't want it to be any older than?
Thank you again, you eased my mind for tonight.
You're welcome:) I'm glad that I could help you....and Liberty, of course! And, thanks so much for the rating; it's greatly appreciated. It's possible that this is her kidney but it sounds more like a bladder infection to me.The increased frequency and lack of control suggests the latter.I usually recommend that the first urine of the day be brought in. If your appointment isn't until later in the day and you're not certain if you'll be able to catch one, then just put it in the refrigerator. Obviously, the fresher, the better but a few hours shouldn't make that much of a difference. Please keep me posted if you have a chance. Even though you've rated, we can still communicate as we have been. I can also send you a follow up email in a few days.Good luck:) Regards, Deb
Thank God for vets as many, my little girl is my child. So thank you very much for taking the worry away.
I am a Nurse and can usually calm a patient down, but when it comes to my dog daughter :) it is very difficult for me to accept her dying.
Thank you again and I will attempe a urine sample in the morning as her appt is at 1030a.
Have a wonderful day!
