Hello. Thanks for the question.

It sounds like the stress of the new dog has caused a UTI. This is not too uncommon. A round of antibiotics from your vet should get this cleared up. If you want to try something now to help with the irritation, you can use Aspirin. The dose in dogs is 5 mg per lb body weight. It can be given every 12-24 hours, as needed.
