Hello all, My dog is 9 months old and she has been a great dog. She is a boxer/mastiff mix. The one problem I am having with her is that she is having problems holding her pee. We leave her in her kennel for 5-6 hours a day and we let her outside as soon as we get home, she has a long urination and usually defecates. The issue is that maybe 45 minutes to an hour later, she is whining to go back out again. She is a pretty big baby and whines when she is bored too, so we'll just tell her to stop whining or give her something to do, and then all of a sudden she'll run to the door and start to urinate before she gets to the door and not even squatting. I'm not sure if it's like when humans "break the seal" then you have to urinate right after again, or if it's something along the lines of a UTI. Anyone have any information that would be great. We got one opinion from a vet from a phone call and they said that it sounds like a UTI. It just gets me, because it's not like she is in pain or has problems peeing, its basically just when she is inside for a long time where she has to hold it, and then she has already peed once. Other than that she doesn't have any issues holding it. Thanks in advance for the heads up. PS - I know that I should just take her to the vet, but they can be costly and I'm currently busy with work.
