Puppy UTI and medical cost advice
So we got a puppy about a month ago, she is currently 3 months old. We've had some issues house training her, we werecommend still having 1-2 accidents per day up until 2 days ago. All of a sudden she is having 5+ accidents, peeing while walking, peeing every 5-15 min. She doesn't drink a whole lot of water, but pees a large amount frequently. I am pretty sure she has a UTI but I wasn't able to get a hold of the vet today, I will try again tommorow.
For right now, does any one have any thoughts on how to keep her from urinating everywhere? We have an x pen that she stays in but will walk around in there and pee. She eats puppy pads and we cannot take her out every 15 minutes due to our schedules... also, I feel that if she pees in her crate so and is sitting it is should bathe her, but her skin is already so dry and full of dandruff I don't want to hurt her, but I don't want her coat full of urine either. .. thoughts?
Also, my fiance is feeling very discouraged with the medical problems we have had with her. Previously she had 2 types of worms, mites, and a major food sensitivity. We have paid over $800 in vet visits and medications to treat and now she has a questionable uti (but definitly an issue). He thinks we might have to rehome her... he thinks we might have to sink all our savings for our wedding into her. I'm willing to do what it takes but it is worrying me how much I will end up paying for everything. .. any thoughts?
