Hi, Debora. Can you tell me more about how/where this has been witnessed? Any scooting behavior on the floor or ground? Does she have a history of illness or injury?

On bedding and furniture licking her pee/butt area
Dog Veterinarian: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 1 year ago

Does she lick between her legs or with her legs together and around her side/under her tail?

Are the spots droplets or puddles?

Have you witnessed any blood?

Between her legs...puddles no blood

Based on the information you have shared, this sounds like a urinary concern. My anticipation is that you're seeing symptoms of a urinary tract infection. This is unlikely to warrant an emergency visit so long as her symptoms don't worsen over the course of the weekend, but I would recommend taking her to see your vet come Monday morning, at the latest, to have a urine sample obtained and examined. Make sure that she does not express her bladder in the grass before you enter the clinic. They need to collect urine during her visit. Based on what is found, a wide range of recommendations may be made. Typically the infection, if present, can be addressed with a simple course of antibiotics and symptoms improve within a few days.

I hope this information has been helpful. I will be standing by if you have other questions. Let me know if I can help further.
