I have to get a urine sample from my dog and i'm struggling  :-[ has anyone got any tips ? i'm going to try get an old tray under her while she is going but i think this may be messy  :eek: and i'm not sure it will work. I only have a tiled floor in the kitchen and i don't really want to shut her in there and just hope she goes (then i could syringe some up as suggested by another ff) as i think she would either be distressed by it or just wouldn't go anyway, please help !!

thanks, pam xx

Aww bless, do hope she is home with you soon, keep us posted, when are you expecting test results?

Incase you need another sample my vet suggested a soup ladle - worked a treat!

Has the vet said anything about what they think it could be?

How old is your fur baby

I wish they could just turn around and say, mum my tummy hurts xxxxxx

thanks guys, the vets will be phoning mid morning tomorrow (which probably means afternoon)  ;D ;D hopefully they will have the results of the further blood tests and also they should be able to give us the urine sample results.

they suspect she may have pancreatitis and/or diabetes :'( my pooor little baby looked so withdrawn and sad today, she is dehydrated although i have been trying to get her to take some fluids from a syringe which obviously isn't enough so she has to have a drip, i'm very worried about her  :'( :'( she is only 6 years old so still a baby in my eyes i just hope she doesn't deteriorate further and they get her sorted

Hiya Pam, hope the results come back okay hun ^hugme^

One of our dogs had diabetes (Sadly no longer with us, but was 14, border collie) and discovered she had it when she was about 8. so had to collect urine from her every day (with a little pot!) then checked her urine against the sticks, so she was on insulin every day, little jab in her neck, she got so used to it bless her. But she led a long and happy life.

Its worrying when theyre ill, hopefully it shows nothing serious. ^pray^ ^hugme^
