My Dog acts like she has to go pee but nothing is coming out.

Resolved Question:

My Dog acts like she has to go pee but nothing is coming out. Could she have a blatter infection. What can I do for her to make her feel better until she can see a vet. Can I put baking soda in her water. I heard that works for humans not sure about dogs.

In thinking about your case, I am very concerned that she is trying to urinate and nothing is coming out at all.

Common causes for this may include:
- Urinary tract infection
- Bladder stones
- Bladder crystals

Because nothing is coming out - seeing your veterinarian or the local ER tonight is recommended - this is to make sure there is not a blockage in the bladde such as can be seen with a stone as this could be life threatening!
