Possible UTI

Housebreaking had been going so well for our 11-week old chocolate lab pup but in the last few days, this has changed. Cheyenne was starting to let us know when she had to go outside for a bathroom break but a couple of days ago, she went in her crate and has gone in the house more often. Luckily, it is only urine and can easily be cleaned up with some paper towels, Nature's Miracle, and a steam cleaner if needed but it is disturbing nonetheless. Also, she has begun squatting a few times to let out a few drops of urine or no urine at all right after she has successfully gone potty outside. This signifies that there may be something is wrong with our little Labrador.

Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) do happen in some pups around her age and these signs are consistent with UTI. Unfortunately, we won't know until our already scheduled appointment this weekend as to whether or not this is the case. It is really disappointing because she was getting so much better and then it all came to a standstill. What makes it even worse is that we bought her from a breeder for $700 and she came to us with worm, coccidia, and now this. Yes, the breeder was responsible enough to give her medication before she came to us but this did not rectify the problem. I love the lab breed and I love this little girl so I am not willing to give up on her - no matter what. Things will get better with time - this just was not the welcoming to our family we had hoped it would be.
