  • Absolutely! In fact they can get them a lot, especially unfixed female dogs. I would have her checked out. There is really inexpensive meds they can give her to cut it out so I wouldn't worry about it too much! Good luck!

  • Yes any age dog can get a urinary  infection - she may need to see a vet for some antibiotics.


    To avoid UTIs in the future : cranberry and NuVET supplements sure do help:


    here is a link on the supplements and feeding .... HOPE this helps
