Hi I'm Rosie one of the vets and I'd like to try and help you and Molly. I'm sorry she is unwell at the moment. I have a few questions if that's ok:- can you describe in more detail what happens when she is trying to urinate?- is she still wanting to eat?- any change in the amount she is drinking?- is she happy in herself?- any blood in her urine?- when did this start?- is she on any medication at the moment?- has this happened before?Thank you - the extra information will really help. Rosie.
