My dog is not eating and not urinating for a long time (over 2 weeks now), she is always happy, doesn't seem sick or in pain, and has not gotten sick (she has had her shots and has been to the vet, as well as a trip to the vet the day of my birthday), so I'm wondering if something could be wrong. She has not gained any weight, she has started to get very dry to the point where she has started to crack and it is really red and she will not eat, and also she is having issues with poop, she seems to be getting diarrhea. Is there something wrong?

Hi there! I think I can help you out with this one! The signs of your dog having a UTI can be pretty subtle, and you may only see a few of them!

Sign #1 - If your dog has a UTI, he/she will often eat less than usual. A healthy dog with a UTI will often refuse to eat anything besides water for a couple of days, or they may be fine with eating some wet food or dry food, but they won't eat dry food or any dry food for that matter!

Sign #2 - If your dog has a UTI, they will start drinking more water than usual! This is to keep them hydrated and try to flush out the infection.

Sign #3 - If your dog has a UTI, he/she will begin to urinate frequently! A healthy dog with a UTI will often be going multiple times a day!

Sign #4 - If your dog has a UTI, they will start to be a little 'ragged' around the house, especially if they are eating less than usual. A healthy dog with a UTI will often be scratching more than usual, because their skin is sore.

Sign #5 - If your dog has a UTI, they will often begin to scratch more, and will want to be walked more often, or will want to play more! A healthy dog with a UTI will usually also start to want to be walked more often or want to play more.

Sign #6 - If your dog has a UTI, they will begin to have a little discomfort when they try to go to the bathroom, but most dogs with a UTI will be fine. A healthy dog with a UTI will begin to have a little discomfort when they go to the bathroom.

So, if you notice any of these signs, it's a pretty good bet that your dog has a UTI! Now, it's always good to get your dog to the vet if you are concerned, but don't wait until your dog gets really sick! You want to take action before it's too late!

Thank you for your response! She has been drinking much more water than usual, but I didn't think about it being more than usual until I looked at her belly, which is bloated, and the fur around her tummy area is starting to get very sore, which is why I'm not sure about eating more. I thought she had started peeing more due to the diarrhea, but she has never had diarrhea, and she had her last vet visit on my birthday, so I'm not sure what it could be.

I think she may have the first signs, and I want to make sure before I bring her in!

My dog has the same problem! She's been doing this for over 2 weeks, and it is starting to scare me. I don't know if it's because she ate something she shouldn't have, or it's more to do with the kidney.

My vet said he wouldn't treat it unless it started to get bad, and I haven't seen any blood, and her weight has not changed at all, but I'm starting to worry now. Do you think it's anything she has eaten?

There is a lot of information here on the site to help you answer your question. There is a link to information from the ASPCA, and a link to information on UTIs from the ASPCA and the Pet Poison Helpline, both of which are excellent sources of information on the subject.

If your dog has eaten something it shouldn't have, and doesn't have an obvious physical cause for the diarrhea (such as vomiting, or abdominal pain), the best way to approach this problem is by working with your vet to determine what has been causing the diarrhea. Your vet is probably the best person to figure this out, but it may take a few days.

A visit with the vet is important, because as you note, your dog isn't gaining weight, which may be a sign of dehydration. Also, a vet visit is the best way to make sure that the diarrhea is not a sign of an underlying disease (such as kidney disease), or a life threatening condition.

If your dog has eaten something that should be eliminated from their system, it's likely that it will cause the diarrhea. It may be that your dog is just experiencing a reaction to the food, or the reaction may actually cause some damage to the system. You may need to make a few visits to the vet to make sure the diarrhea stops and the system is back to normal.

I have had some experience with this. My dog had some watery diarrhea for a while, which I attributed to the fact that she was eating grass. After a while I was able to identify what the problem was, but not before she had already had a couple of trips to the vet. It turned out that she had eaten some of the new kind of 'fruit flavored' chicken treats. These kinds of treats are not meant to be eaten by dogs. They are designed for human consumption. The treats contain a substance that the dog can't properly digest. After a couple of days, the dog was able to eliminate the substance.

    I apologise, but, in my opinion, you are not right. I am assured. I suggest it to discuss.

    Comrades soldiers, the song must be shouted so that the muscles on the ass tremble. Sleep faster - you need a pillow. Better to do and regret than to regret not doing. I didn’t love you as much as you moaned! ..

    You are wrong. I propose to discuss it. Write to me in PM, speak.

    I think this is the wrong way.
