    Default Before I call the vet.....

    I'm not sure if this is behavior related or something else is going on.

    for a few weeks now Ruthie has decided to start peeing on her bed and the other bed(for people) in the room she sleeps in. I even caught her this past Saturday doing it right in front of me.
    Some days it will happen, some it won't. I keep them on a very strict potty schedule and she HATES going pee. I have to go outside with her and say...GO PEE for her to actually go and even then, it's a good 15 mins before she actually decides to go.
    Even last night, she went before bed and this morning, she peed on the big bed. I'm frustrated. She is not going anywhere else in the house. When she does go, i praise the hell out of her.

    She was so mad at me last night because of her eye drops which she also hates and then i noticed her fold was not looking good, so i cleaned it and put some desitin on it. I'm pretty sure that is why she peed on the bed, because she's ticked off.

    Should i just go ahead and get her to the vet incase of UTI?
    I'm totally stumped. NOTHING in her schedule has changed.

    Personally I would just to rule out a UTI… you know that is how I found out my cat was diabetic. He kept peeing on everything and getting constant UTI until they discovered that his sugar was off. Better to be safe than sorry… or course if it's out of spite, then Ms. Ruthie will truly be in the DOG HOUSE!!! Lol

    Thank you!
    you are right, i should call. She is only peeing on her bed and the big bed, no where else. maybe she's just being an asshole.
    Brian is already talking about getting her a crate again. And i'm here like...why, she's just gonna pee in it. LOL.

    I called the vet and told them what is going on. I'm taking her in at 3. They said it's best to rule out a UTI or incontinence. Then we can focus on if she's just being bad or not.

    I'd take her to see the vet just in case. She's probably peeing in those two places cause they allready smell like pee...not to piss you of...

    A vet once told me that if they have a UTI when they pee everywhere they think that if they pee somewhere new that it won't hurt. Yeah I know… makes no DAMN sense whatsoever… Lol

    Agree, and glad you have a visit scheduled, better to just check it out real quick I know it could also be anger. Tyson follows us everywhere, one day he was following Danny to the bathroom, Danny decided to shut the door on him, boy oh boy, he instantly pouted, then proceeding to pee right at the door in vengeance. It was quite hilarious. I hope all is fine with sweet Ruthie girl. Hugs

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    If it's anger she's been mad at us a WHOLE LOT. ugggghhhhhh. I would much rather have something wrong with her than trying to fix her nasty attitude.

    I have had dogs with UTIs in the past, and at those times they have peed anywhere and everywhere and it's usually every few minutes. They feel like they have to pee all the time, so even though they don't have much urine they squat and pee every few minutes. It's maddening, but you know it's a UTI and you can't get to the vet for meds fast enough!
