Stringy urine

This isn't my hav but she lives with my havs so....
I took the dogs out back to go potty and my standard poodle had stringy urine. She came over to me after I watched her urinate and was petting her and there was still a long string of gooey urine there. She's spayed so no worry there but I'm really upset. Has anyone had this happen and if so, what was it? She has a vet appt this evening. I gave her water from a cup a while later then took her out back and asked her to go potty for me and I caught the urine in something to take with us to the vet. This doesn't have the stringy stuff in it though

Sounds like a UTI to me too. I hope the vet appointment goes well. Hopefully all she will need are some antibiotics.

Blessings, Luna and the girls

Here's what we know so far. She has a fever and a small amount of bacteria in her urine along with stringy urine. The vet is running tests on her and we should know more tomorrow. Tosha is an amazing dog...she almost knows what I'm thinking and can be one step ahead of me. She doesn't act up or out of line but in the vet's office she peed on the floor! That's the place she got spayed and went through about 10 days of hell after it though so I think that's what caused it.

Jan,

It sounds to me like she has a UTI/bladder infection. Did the vet send any meds home with you or are you just waiting till tomorrow to get the results?
