Urinating problems

I have a 2 year old female rot… she has been fixed at 9 months old. she sleeps in my daughters bed. for around 6 months now she goes outside to pee and squats the first time and pees but then keeps squating throughout the yard to pee more but no more comes out maybe a few dribbles. I have taken her to 2 vets she has been on antibiotics. they did an x ray and said it wasn’t the best but they didnt see any stones. they also checked her urine and 1 vet said there was no blood and the second vet said there was a little blood but i believe that was from the examination the did to her with their finger.

also she has peed on the bed a few times when shes sleeping.. and just recently my daughters friend moved in and now my dog cant fit in the bed with my daughter and is now sleeping on the floor. She is now urinating in my house and urinated on my kitchen floor while she was eating. she has urinated in my house up to 3 times in 1 day even when she was just outside. she has a clear mucos that i have seen come out of her vagina… im not sure if this is a bladder infection or any kind of infection that the vet didnt catch at the time of the tests because she was on antibiotics for a while before the tests or is this a dominant issue or jealousy issue … please help… thanks

I’m not a veterinarian, but in my opinion what you’re describing is not a dominance issue or any kind of behavioral issue, it’s a medical one.

This is not normal and she’s showing classic signs of a urinary tract infection. I strongly advise you to take her back to your veterinarian for more tests as she likely needs more (or a different type) antibiotics to kill off the bacteria causing the problem.

Left untreated, UTI’s can cause kidney problems and other serious complications so I’d recommend getting your girl to your vet asap. If you don’t get the help you need from your vet, don’t hesitate to seek a second opinion, this is a situation that needs to be treated promptly and properly.

I wish you the very best of luck and hope that you pup makes a full recovery soon.

Hi. I recenty went through an experience with my female rotti and it is highly likely this is a urinary tract infection. My girl had to be hospitalized overnight and was on a very high dose of antibiotics for a month. Don’t let this go, the longer you wait the more danger she is in.
