    Bulldogs get UTI quicker then most breeds, if his peeing pattern changed quickly, chances are he has an infection. The quicker you get the vet to check his urine the quicker he can heal.

    Definitly sounds like a UTI. You described everything Bella was doing to a T. Please get it checked cause the longer you wait, the further in can travel up into the bladder and other areas.

    Also, in case you are not sure how to get a urine sample...
    Wait till your dog goes to squat and slide a small cake pan or something wide and shallow under while they pee. Then put in a sterile tupperware and bring straight to your vet to get them to run a urine analisis. For me, it cost $25 for the test and then $35 for the antibiotics. Although, prices are different everywheres. Also, make sure to get the urine tested again at the end of antibiotic treatment. Bella had to have another round of antibiotics, but the second round was milder and cheaper...I think $11 or so. Good Luck and I hope he gets better soon.

    @wfd38383 I hope he feels better soon. Bear's problem is he is being stubborn, outside he pees on all the trees and rocks. He doesn't release his bladder entirely no matter how long I have him out there. Then he'll hike up and pee on stuff in the house without warning. He has no other symptoms and most on here say its because he isn't fixed. Guinness is still very young, hope it isn't mean to say that I hope its a UTI so your frustration goes away. He is such a sweety!
    I didn't do it

    While I definitely wish it wasn't the case, I agree with it sounding like a UTI. I really think he is still way too young to be marking. Hope everything gets better soon!

    Vet said it was a UTI but can't be sure until the urine analysis comes back. He put Guinness on meds for 7 days. $178 later and i'm home with a sleeping dog...also had rabies shot and another shot and regular monthly check up...just so you don't think my vet is that expensive hahaha

    Glad to hear you got him right in and so he'll be on the mend now. Do you have a carpet cleaner? I would scrub (steam-clean) the rugs where he peed all over, so he won't have the odor attracting him back to those spots.

    I'm glad he is on the mend. You will notice a difference when the meds start kicking in. I am surprised however that they gave him shots with a compromised immune system . I'm no vet but I know with my kids, that's usually a big no-no. But then again, as much as I like to think so, dogs are not the same as kids .

    You should have the pee check to a vet. There might be problem with the dog's urinary system or worse the nervous system which controls the excretion of urine.
