    Sorry, another question from me.

    McKenzie hasn't had an accident inside for about 6 weeks, but within the space of 3 days she's had 3, including 2 today within the last 3 hours.

    Might this be an UTI? Or is it something else - co-incidence or part of the teenage thing? Nothing else has changed that I can think of - I'm certainly not leaving her longer than usual between toilet breaks.

    Should I see a vet tomorrow or wait and see what happens in the next few days?

    Thanks :)

    ETA the three accidents she has had have all been in different places if that makes a difference!

    A urine test costs so little and could prevent much suffering. Give the vet a ring and pop a sample in for testing

    Could well be a UTI, they like us cant hold it when they have an infection,
    and also tend to pass urine a lot more in general too.

    If it is total out of character now, and happening regularly, would be a good idea to get it check. If you can take urine sample with you that would save time too. It only needs a course of antibiotics usually.

    Is Mckenzie spayed? I think you said shes about 7half months now on another recent thread? If not spayed she may also becoming into season, so worth getting her checked out.
