    Question don't laugh !!!

    Ok so we have to take Duke back to the vet on Saturday .. remember he had the stomach bug last week ( he is much better ! ).. anyway when he was there they drew blood, told us all looked good but his blood sugar was a little high.. the vet thinks it was because he was dehydrated but wants to recheck just to be sure.. In any case he told us to bring a urine sample?? please don't laugh but does anyone have any tips on how the heck I am going to do this??????

    You may want to try a pee pad, but have him go on the back portion of the pad, NOT the absorbant part. Then you may be able to pour whatever you get into a cup to take to the vet. I only know b/c my boys were trained on pee pads and many times they've peed on the wrong side and there have been little puddles of pee. Just my 2 cents!

    thanks!!! that is a good idea.. I can just see this now! I think he is ok, the vet really thinks it was a little high because he was up all night getting sick and was dehydrated..

    i had the worst experience. they told me that i needed to bring in urine sample from sumo from her first pee of the day!!! and i had to let it run a little before i went to get the sample. so early in the morning i got up with plastic gloves on and got in there. it was NOT pretty. Thank goodness for those gloves!

    God that would be hard!! I was thinking maybe stick a bowl-pan under him, (Vegas pees like a girl) but I know the minute I would do that he would pinch it off. I am glad I have never had to do this, I would be asking the same question!!

    I had to do this with Bella. I did it just like @KMARINO said: when the dog squats down, slide a low edged bowl underneath. Works like a charm

    Always with me

    Okay good so Brutus isnt alone at this! I dont think he will ever learn to lift the leg

    @BabyDuke I agree either the pee pee pad or using a bowel. Good Luck to Duke

    the upside down pee pad works best of all. I've never trusted with the doctor goes in to get it. That could introduce extra bacteria into the urinary tract.

    For me, her name was Abby
