I am here waiting to hear from you.

I am sorry to hear Snuggles has been urinating in the house. When a dog starts to do this, it is often due to a urinary tract infection (UTI). It may not be her fault; she may not be able to control it.

It is never a good idea to "rub a dog's nose in it" as punishment. It does not stop them urinating indoors. Were you bitten badly?

As I said, give me a moment to type my answers! I type, it goes to the website, and then to you.

I would start with a urinalysis to check to see if she has a UTI.

I am so sorry but I can't make calls for the website. That offer came from them, not me!

ok lets see what I should do for my baby?

The best place to start is to do a urinalysis, to see if she has an infection, and needs antibiotics.

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

If she does have a UTI, she needs antibiotics, and that should stop her urinating in the house.

i think this is a rip off.

I am not texting. I am typing answers that the website sends to the device of your choice.

I hope you are seeing that I recommend doing a urinalysis, to check for an infection.
