|Sassy started to have the same thing happen about a year ago. I took her in to the vet and we got a sterile urine sample and sent that out, we also did a quick look by ultrasound of her bladder and we did a complete blood panel. All of it came back as normal so we chalked it up to urinary spay incontinence. ( google it and check out info on it)
I tried her on the typical meds that are prescribed for this and she would vomit every time she took them so, by chance I came across a holistic product and figured, what the heck, tried it and it works like a charm.
I would take a trip to the vet to make sure it is not a UTI or something else. To truly check for a UTI, the vet needs to obtain a sterile sample of urine. A sample that is caught by the owner ( called a free catch) will always contain a large amount of bacteria b/c as the urine travels through the urethra, it picks up all sorts of bacteria that is always present in there, therefore, your sample will reveal bacteria, no matter what. A non sterile sample is good though for detecting blood, pH, crystals ( sometimes this can be falsified though too), ketones, and other levels.
