    Default Urine test? How!

    Abby drinks CONSTANTLY! No matter how much water you give her she sucks it up. In fact, if you're not looking and she has an accident on the floor she will drink it. I mentioned it to the vet when I had her in on Thursday and she wants to do a urine test. She's checking for diabetes, urinary tract infection and some other stuff. Problem is, I cant seem to get any of it.

    She was very sick when we got her last month so my first priority was getting her healthy and house breaking took a back seat. She is paper trained tho. If I see her heading for the paper, I grab the plastic lid that I'd planned on collecting a sample with but by the time I get there she's either done or she runs away. The other problem is that her legs are so short that most of the time I can't tell if she's sitting or peeing.

    I've been trying to do this for almost a week How the heck does anyone collect a urine sample from a puppy! lol

    I was thinking if when she pee's on the floor, but it sounds like she takes care of that herself.

    I would call you vet and ask them how exactly you are supposed to get a urine sample from her. They should be able to give you some advice or suggestions on how to get one. I can just see trying to chase after a bully with a cup....lol

    I use a paper plate but I do it when I know they are going to pee.... Just slide it under but if you can't get it the vet should be able to...

    It is brutal.... get the vet techs to do it. That is what I did when we needed one for Banks cause I was having the same issue -- is she peeing or sitting???

    Thanks I didn't think about a catheter. I just called the vet. She isn't in yet but they say they'll have her call me back.

    My vet told me to put an empty ice cube tray under there and catch some....it works pretty good because it's got enough length....of course you won't be wanting to make ice cubes in that tray ever again....good luck

    I usually try to get the first morning one when I know he's ready to pee, I put him on the lead and follow round the garden with a tray. Luckily my neighbours know George has kidney problems or they'd think I was mad out there every few months!

    Take a wee wee pad and turn it upside down so the plastic is facing up. Let her pee on that. You can easily catch the pee on it. Works like a charm.
