Hello, my name is***** and I have over 20 years of experience as a veterinarian. I am sorry to hear that Dani is straining to urinate small amounts frequently.With her symptoms I would be most suspicious of a urinary tract infection. Being young with an immature immune system and female with a short urethra this would be the most likely possibility. She needs to see her veterinarian for an examination and to check a urinalysis. All you can do for her at home is encourage fluid intake to flush out her urinary tract. Add water or low salt beef or chicken broth to her food or feed her canned food to encourage eating and increase her fluid intake.Give her ice cubes. Offer her fresh water frequently.And make sure she gets out frequently to urinate. If she is straining but unable to pass urine, and is vomiting, runs a fever (more than 103F rectally), has a tense, painful abdomen with gentle pressure, or her gums become very pale it is time for emergency veterinary care. Please let me know if you have any further questions.
