Get Pet Questions Answered by Pet Experts
Because you are seeing urination problems, I would be very concerned about a bladder or urinary infection or even stones that might be causing this.
Urination problems can be pretty painful and she's probably feeling a little off. That's probably why she won't eat or drink.
I think that you should see the vet tomorrow for a urine culture to find out what's going on.
Let me know if you still have questions.
Yes. I feel pretty confidant that, if she ate tonight and she is of nearly normal activity level, you can wait until tomorrow to see the vet.
If you are in doubt, you can always take her temp rectally. Normal resting temp for a dog is 101 - 102.5. If it's elevated much more than this, you should see the vet.
If she is unresponsive to you or you have problems waking her up, you need to see the vet.
I never said that she might have gall stones. I said that she might have stones in the urinary tract that are causing a problem. Dogs often have crystals in their urine and this can cause stones. The stones then cause a blockage and this can cause problems.
Any time that you see these problems, you should worry about a urinary disorder.
I did not give you a "stock" answer. I told you what I know.
I am glad that she is back to normal today!

I am sorry that my reply was not thorough enough. I assumed that you would know what "stones" mean. You had obviously hear of gall stones and not of urinary stones or blockages. That was my mistake and I am sorry for not explaining well enough.
I can see that you are a very honest person and I appreciate that you are following up on this and letting me know how displeased you are.
You can either leave your deposit in your account to use at a later date or you can request a refund.
I don't expect you to accept my answer because you are obviously not satisfied with it.
I apologize for not explaining stones well enough that you could understand what I meant.
If you continue to see her squat but unable to pee, you will need to see the vet for a urine culture. This culture will help to detect the presence of stones in the urine or a urinary infection.
I am glad that she is feeling better!
