Karen ~ that's the way my vet does it (needle into the bladder) IF they can't get the dog to pee.
Linda, I am so very sorry, know that we are struggling right along with you. ((((HUGS))))
Tillie seems mostly fine except for she is still not drinking. I am adding a good amount of water to her food and that is getting her through, but it's the oddest thing. WHY don't they DRINK when they are struggling like this?? odd.
Anywho, I am begining to worry and research incontinence as Tillie has wet her CRATE (no where else) 3 nights in a row now....?????? so very strange.
I leave the door to her crate OPEN. Her bed is no more than a foot away from my bed, she has never cried, tried to wake me up, nothing... which is why I am wondering about incontinence. I know if she KNEW she HAD to pee she would at the very least whine and whimper.? weird.
I'll be calling her vet to schedule her following up appt in the morning, hopefully he'll be able to see her sometime this week.
I am also starting to consider moving her crate into the kitchen (with tile floors) and set the x-pen around it AND giving her a pee pad, she's never used pee pads before, never had ANY interest. But it seems to me that she may NEED them now and might be more likely to use it. Goodness knows I can soak up the PEE in her crate to get the smell on it. sigh. I wonder how she would do... she has ALWAYS slept in her crate in our closet area... don't want to cause her more trauma or feeling like I am 'sending her away' ... you know??? sigh.
