UTI's are more common with females, the main symptoms is sudden peeing in the house in a dog that is house trained. I wrote a week ago about Yogi's UTI he is on his second round of pills and using prednisone for inflammation of the colon and rectum. It hurts the poor boy to poop and that was his first symptom, the second was a tucked up belly and not wanting to climb stairs, he also started doing little tiny piddles in the house, the Vet says he probably had this for a time but males often have very few symptoms. My big clue was when he stood in front of me in the kitchen squatted, whined and carried on while pooping in front of me.
Vet bills really suck..but its better to catch it early. I learned a lesson that if my dog is less active it might not be the heat. We had to do x rays, blood panels, and ultrasound, don't let it get there. Hope Gucci is better soon.
