Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
1) Is she urinating or drinking any more frequently? 2) Any blood in the urine? 3) Any accidents?
The mucus in her urine may be a benign finding, but it also may be associated with a urinary tract infection, which are fairly common in young puppies. The ideal approach would be to have her examined, a urinalysis performed and treatment started according to what is found in the urine. More often than not, this is a course of antibiotics and then your vet may or may not recommend a recheck urinalysis after the antibiotic course is finished. With the lack of major symptoms, you should be able to wait until Monday to have her examined if this is your preference.

You can increase fluid that she is intaking with canned food or kibble that has been moistened (this will help to keep her bladder flushed) and you can also add a few drops of pure cranberry juice to her food and water 2-3 times daily. This should help to cut back on any discomfort. Do not give any OTC human NSAID medication at home as they're often toxic to dogs and will worsen her situation.
