Lexi is doing great and will turn 6 months in February. Her training is coming along quite nicely and she is growing like a weed :) She's been to the kennel twice (for an overnight stay) and to the groomers once. The problem is - last week was her second stay at the dog kennel because I was out of town on a business trip and couldn't carry her along. Anyway, she was fine...had no problems when I carried her, etc., but the lady at the kennel proceeded to tell me that I was feeding her all the wrong stuff (all the stuff I give her is per VET's instructions) and that they were not going to feed her what I had. Anyway, when I pick her up Monday - I noticed something weird was going on with her going to the potty and peeing. Its like she had to pee several times in a row...but nothing would come out...or it would only come out a little by little. I'm wondering if it is a UTI and/or if she picked up some kind of something from the kennel? Does anyone know or have experience with this?

Thanks a bunch :)
Emily (and Lexi too ) :)

hey, Emily, you are probably on the right track, it sounds like a UTI from here...geez, that kennel doesn't sound like a lot of fun for you OR Lexi! This is a really easily-treated problem tho, if that's it. And maybe your vet would like that feedback on the kennel? Especially if he recommended it!

Keep us posted....

Glad to hear Lexi is doing well! But, I think you need to change kennels!! They wouldn't feed her what you brought?! That seems a little outrageous, especially if what you feed her is per your vet's instructions.
My 9 month old had similar problems with vaginitis and urinary tract infections. Squatting to urinate with no urine production is a sign of a urinary tract or bladder infection, and when they feel they need to go several times in a row. Poor baby, these infections are painful! If this keeps up, I definately think its worth a trip/call to the vet. Good luck and keep us posted!
