Dr. Louis Gotthelf :

Hi. I'm Dr. Gotthelf. I have been a vet for 33 years and I would like to use my experience to help you with your pet's medical problem.

Dr. Louis Gotthelf :

This is probably normal. The female puppies start to produce mucus as they start to produce some hormones.

Customer:

Dr. Louis Gotthelf :

If she is straining to pee and if you see any color or cloudiness to the urine, then have her checked.

Urinary tract infection.

Yes. But your vet would need to make that call.
