I think Becca may have another UTI. I had to go in to work for about an hour today and came home to a puddle. After I cleaned it up I took her for a walk. She peed four more times, a sizeable amount then trickles. She will pee to mark, but this didn't have the same behavior pattern. Since then she has gone out two more times and peed both. Becca has been quiet today, but played and practiced agility.
I plan on calling the vet tomorrow. My key question is whether or not this could be caused by my long work days and Becca having to hold it.
The last problem was in May, the end of the school year and long days. No issues over the summer with me working half days. This school year is crazy. I'm working 9 hours often. My dog walker got another job last winter before the problems began. A neighbor offered to let her out a few times tomorrow. I need to find a new dog walker at least for few days a week and work decent hours the others. I may ask the same neighbor who offered to take her out tomorrow. She is a very active 75, but I would worry about the ice this winter.
The only doggie daycare available is not a place I would take her.
I give Rocky a human cranberry pill, available at any big box store, in his food everyday after his bout with crystals in his urine. He just scarfs them down. They are cheap and are the same ones I take. He gets one per day.
