Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I do have a couple of questions to see if I can better assess your situation.
Is she urinating larger or smaller amounts?
Have you noticed her trying to urinate multiple time with very little to no urine coming out?
Any blood in the urine?
Is she urinating anywhere else in the house?
Any increase in her water consumption?
Any vomiting or lack of appetite?
Thanks for the information. My suspicion is that she has a urinary tract infection. I cannot rule out some other issue with the kidneys or some other problem, such as diabetes. Usually, though, if the urine is in small amounts, it is a bladder infection. I would have your vet run a urinalysis on her to check for that. If deemed necessary based on the results, they may want to run some bloodwork. If it is an infection, she will need some antibiotics. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
