Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, I'm Dr. Kara. I have over 20 years of experience as a veterinarian and I'd like to help. Please give me a moment to review your concerns.
If she were simply urinating more than usual and straining to urinate then a simple urinary tract infection would be the most likely cause of these symptoms in a young female puppy.
But I am also concerned about her vomiting and sudden incontinence.
That can indicate a lower urinary tract infection that has evolved into a kidney infection, or a systemic infection.
Because she is a puppy her immune system is not as strong as an adult dog so systemic infections or more serious infections are possible.
Being a puppy that is willing to mouth and eat all kinds of things eating something that was toxic to her kidneys is a concern too.
I do think that she needs a veterinary examination as soon as possible, and I highly recommend a urinalysis and urine culture.
Best of luck with your puppy, please let me know if you have any further questions.
Hello, I wanted to make sure that you didn't have any further questions for me, and I'd like to know how things turned out for your pup. If you could give me an update that would be great, thank you, ***** *****
