The first thing that should be ruled out as this does not sound like a chronic problem is a urinary tract infection. To do this, Sammy will need to see her vet, have a urinalysis performed and started on antibiotics. In most cases, the symptoms resolve within just a few days of treatment.

I could have done this on my own so I am not satisfied with the service. Please do NOT charge me the $14 and I am requesting a full refund of the $5. Thank you.
