Does my puppy have a UTI?
First let me say- I AM GOING TO A VET. Just trying to get an idea of what's going on so I know how much it will cost me.
My 10 week old girl has had some reddish brown stuff around her privates for the past few days. I cleaned her up but it comes back, not a lot just barely around the area. I have researched stuff online so let me say:
No blood in her urine
No visible irritation/inflammation/scratching/etc
She does drink a lot of water and pees a lot intermittently but she has been doing that since I got her (3 weeks ago)
She does sit/lay in her pee a lot, to my dismay
I researched uterine infections, bladder infections and UTIs but none of it seems to fit her. Any similar experiences?

It is best your taking her to a vet. It could be a yeast or bacterial infection, I have no idea. I have never owned a female, wish I could offer you something but I can't. Good luck and I hope you find a solution.

Its good you're taking her to a vet. I am not really sure what that is either, but just a warning, if she does have UTI then don't listen to the vet if they say put her on Hills k/d canned food. I had to do that for my JRT when she had UTI and she lost so much weight that we thought she was going to die. I read a story, too, that someone used the same perscription food and their Sheltie died from losing so much weight. If thats what your vet prescribes then look for a holistic vet here: ahvma.org.
