Hang in there, Tammy, and don't jump to conclusions. You're doing the right thing with bringing her to the vet early on. Keep us posted on what's happening and we're all hoping for the best for her.

Hopefully it is just a phase. Ours went thru something like that at about 20 months...after many vet visits, nothing seemed to be wrong, she just stopped and has never had another accident or episode like that. Maybe it is just like the terrible two phase with human children!

Hope all is fine with her. I lock my girls in my bedroom when they are in season and when they are ready to be bred, and I'm not breeding them occasionally one will pee on the bed. I think it's because they are mad. The girls sleep in our bedroom every night and don't do it otherwise. It's a pain, but I'll live through it.

well I ended up calling them to see if I could bring her down to get the sample early as I didn't want her to pee here and then not have any at the vet's!!
So, the vet tech was able to catch her pee in the cup on a stick!! wahoooooooooooooooooooo!! the pee was SO strong I could smell the stink from the cup o' pee from several feet away! The vet did the 'test strip' and it came back very high in protein and alkaline (?) so he put her on antibiotics and is sending the urine for a full urinalysis. I should hear back from him tomorrow.
My mom asked me if this could have been caused from the 2 pumpkin cookies she got into yesterday?? What do you guys think??
I already gave her her first does and she is happily gnawing on a bully stick I got her as a 'good patient' gift.
wow. we have always been so blessed with her health and even though I know this isn't HUGE, it still is very worrisome.
For now we have the x-pen up across the hallway/bedrooms and she will be with me with no roaming room for the next several days at least... Oh and all the beds are a wreck, I've been doing laundry 1/2 the day and airing matresses out. sigh.
But, yay! Hoping the meds kick in and she is her normal self SOON!!
Thanks for the well wishes!!

Can't imagine that 2 pumpkin cookies could cause a UTI! Hope tomorrow is a better day. Antibiotics usually kick in very fast!

Glad she's on the meds, she'll get better fast, now. Poor Tillie, she had to not feel good to go potty on your beds.

ya, when I figured it out this morning that it was HER and not the cats (because they were still locked int he garage), I called the vet right away, I knew something was wrong. My gut intuition is almost never wrong about anything.
I explained it to my kids that she doesn't have WORDS, she can't TELL me it hurts or that something is wrong, so sadly she had to do something that she KNEW would get my attention. message.received.
