Tammy- when I have to get a urine sample, I tape a ziplog baggie to a long stick. Tape two toothpicks to hold the ziplock open so it doesn't want to colapse and close while she is peeing. (sometimes I stick the toothpicks in the part of the baggie above the zipper part).
Then, first thing in the morning when you let her out to potty, put her on a leash and follow her around ), as soon as she squats, quickly hold the ziplock under her. that way, you just have to remove the toothpicks (and the stick!) and you dont touch the urine.
My vet has also suggested using a laddle- but I think the handle is too short!
Paws.....and reflect on what life has given you~
