is this a bladder infection or something more serious?
My vet diagnosed my yorkie with a bladder infection about a month ago. It was right after she was spayed and I noticed a few spots of blood on her puppy pad. She was on medication and it seemed to go away within a few days. About a week ago, she started something new. From the minute she gets up in the morning, she has the urge to go to the bathroom. She will run back and forth to the puppy pad between 6-12 times in a 2 minute time frame. She will go pee the first time and then just keep squatting excessively. The strange thing is that she can go the entire night (8 hours or more) without having the urge to go. But this will start the minute she gets up and continue off and on throughout the entire day. Other than this, she seems fine. She is eating, drinking and playing. The vet is not sure what is wrong with her but believes that it is another bladder infection. She has been on her medicine for 4 days and we have not seen any improvement. I am starting to get worried and I feel very bad for her. Has anyone seen this type of behavior in their yorkie? We had no problems before she was spayed which makes me think that something happened to her during the procedure. If anyone has any info, I would really appreciate it.

You might want to go to this website and do a little reading to see if this sounds like your dog?

my tucker has been diagnosed with a liver shunt, and it caused him to have bladder crystals. he did a lot of excessive squatting because his bladder was blocked and irritated. im not sure this is the problem since you have a female and no liver shunt, but you might want to check and see if she has a slight blockage or something of that nature.
good luck and keep us updated
