    Thank you! We took her to the vet today for her shots and they said it sounds like it prob is a uti and gave her some antibiotics to take so we'll see if it starts getting better over the next few days!!

    Hi everyone! So Pippen is almost 4 months old now! She was still having accidents after taking the amoxicillin so the vet did a urine culture a few weeks ago and found she still had a UTI and the bacteria was resistant to that antibiotic so put her on Baytril instead. She finished that about a week ago and was doing really good at first but has been having a few more accidents lately...

    What's weird is that she will sleep through the whole night in her crate without any accidents but when I put her in the crate during the day and go let her out after a few hours she has peed on herself in the crate like she was doing before She's also had a few accidents around the house lately but has been a lot better about going to the door when she has to go. And I can tell a lot of times she is holding it since she will run outside to go! Also, she "dribbles" a lot. Like if I hold her or have her on my lap there will be little pee spots after she gets up.

    Could this be that the UTI didn't fully go away? What concerns me is her peeing in her crate while she is sleeping (I think) and not even caring about it. Could it possibly be something other than a UTI??

    Here is an updated pic of the little cutie too

    Could be…sounds suspicious that the infection is reoccurring…did they test her for bladder stones?

    Hmm I'm not sure...I would think they would've tested for that too but they never mentioned anything. I'm hoping it's just still potty training related because the Baytril antibiotic is pretty strong and I'd hate to have to keep giving her that

    It could be that she's just potty training, she's still pretty young. How often are you bringing her out to pee - and how often after she's back in is she having an accident?

    Default Peeing in Crate

    @Laurie Yea that's what I'm hoping...during the day I will usually leave her in there for a couple hours at a time and she pretty much sleeps the whole time but when I let her out, her whole behind area and blanket are wet. So I'm not sure if she's going in her sleep or maybe dribbling some in her sleep...it's just so crazy to me since she will hold it ALL night without an accident but is the complete opposite during the day!! I asked the vet and he said it could be she's drinking too much water...we've "tried" limiting her water but she looooves to drink and I hate her not having any water if she's thirsty. That's the only other thing I can think of is at night we don't leave any water in her crate but do have a little bit in during the day.

    Mine just turned 7 months and I want to say have really only gotten a hang of potty training for the last month or so. They held it through the night first, but still had accidents during the day while we were gone. When we are home, they are usually really good with going to the door. I had to bell train bc they would just stand by the door- no barking or anything. But I do notice then one of them are mad or jealous- they pee. When Penny had her surgery, Lockjaw got jealous that I was holdi her all day and pooped in my living room! He has only pooped in the house 1 time and that was the first day I brought him home at 7 weeks! So it may just be an attention getter if she's doing it during the day and your home with her.
    Poor girl! I hope it gets better for you sooner rather than later. She's such a sweet little girl!

    I think at this point I would start keeping a journal of exact times she goes out, how much water intake, time frame of accidents, feeding times ect…if you bring her out every 3 hours, start bringing her out every 2 hours (during the day). She's right in-between that 12-16 week/4month+ potty training stage. At your next vet appt. you can bring the journal so the vet has a better idea as to whether it is bladder control or symptoms of infection and stones. They will probably culture her just to be on the safe side, as a precautionary follow-up to her last uti. Hang in there, she's still so little. I tend to worry at limiting water in-take w/this breed, but you said she drinks a lot - so it could be too much water and a puppy bladder…when is she due to go back to her vet?

    Gosh, I wish I could help with the potty issues, but I have zero experience with pups. I just could not keep moving without saying how stinkin adorabullllll she is. I just love her coloring, seriously I need to meet her and Barkely one day!!!!

    Maybe @Davidh could offer up some help

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    That's a good idea, I'll have to try and start doing that! She actually just went back to the vet last week to get her last shots but was doing better then so we didn't really have much to say about it. But if it's still happening after a few weeks we will have to take her back to get another culture done to be on the safe side! I fill her water bowl up a good amount in the morning and let her drink and let her out frequently after then will leave at least a little bit of water in the rest of the day...but if her bowl is empty she goes over to our other bully's crate and starts guzzling his water!!

    Yea she will just stand by the door too but we've been keeping a close eye on her and can see the backdoor from almost everywhere downstairs so usually know when she has to go out. I told my husband I thought it could be the attention thing too! I work from home so am home all day but can't keep an eye on her the whole time plus want to make sure she is crate trained right. So sometimes I do feel like it could be she is upset with being put in while I'm still at home...she will go lay in our other bully's crate sometimes and I don't think she pees in there. I'll have to pay more attention to that and to if she does it any when we leave the house!
