female JRT strains/squats to urinate for several minutes, repeatedly
by Claudia Reynolds
(Nashville, TN, USA)
My 12.5 year old JR, Minnie, has been straining for several months during urination. When she first goes out, she is able to urinate normally, but continues to squat afterwards straining. On walks it can last 3 minutes and happen every few yards. In back yard she's squatting almost the entire time. I've had many tests done: UTI, crystals, blood work for diabetes, thyroid. X-rays for stones. Nothing showed up in any test. I'd really like to help her.
