We took her to the vet today, and this is what I wrote to the breeder. Oh and if you didn't read my last post, we were having issues with my dog peeing when she fell asleep and having difficulty climbing stairs and getting up from laying down. So instead of writing it out twice, I am just pasting the e-mail I sent to her breeder....
OK, so basically, they are hoping she has a UTI (urinary tract infection), but we have to get a urine sample from her. She wouldn't pee while she was there, so we have to try to get some in the morning to take that back. The vet is concerned about her hips, but is hoping that maybe she is just sore from the UTI. They have put her on Glyco-Flex to hopefully help with her joints. If she comes back negative for the UTI, then we have to take her back in for x-rays and more testing. The vet is quite concerned because she is so young to be having joint issues.
