My less than 2 pup is spayed. She has been having episodes of shaking where she seems to be taken back or taken over by the movement. It always correlates with intense interest / licking of her vula. Any ideas or experience with this sort of behavior?

Vet, vet, vet, ASAP

None whatsoever. // Has she been seen by a vet? - if not, that's #1 task.
Also, most Fs don't indulge in "intense licking" w/o a UTI - or estrus.

i suspect this is likely a troll post - but on the off chance that it's legit, i'm responding politely.
We can all hope so, anyway. ;)

A-huh.

Yes I showed vet the video.
They gave me a container to put her pee in, told me to catch it with a big spoon but I have not been successful yet.

A big SPOON? :ponder: Pull the other leg, why don'cha? :p

If the vet needs a urine specimen, *They* can get it - if absolutely needed, they can take an occult sample.
Good luck. :)

Our Vet has never asked us to collect a urine sample, but if he needs it, his Vet Assistant gets it, which has happened several times.

That's what I've been thinking with the spoon also a-huh. You saw the spoon she had in your video my girl won't let me get near, that plastic tray looks much easier.

Yeah our vet assistant offered to get it but my dog doesn't really pee in the city she likes the woods. Normally holds it till we get home.

I'm not usually in side this much but I just saw her do it for the second time today just not so aggressive with the shaking.

Well... I often have to ask my clients to collect and bring in a urine sample, as it happens quite frequently that the dog just won't go for us to get a free catch, and/ or has a bladder that is too small for a cysto. It would seem pretty common sense that if you are bringing you pet in for a urinary issue we will need to collect a sample for UA, but apparently this is not obvious to the average client as we often get 'Oh he just peed outside' ��. A soup ladle is what we use for collection at the clinic...works quite nicely for all but the most extreme 'low riders' :).
To the OP, I agree a urinalysis would be a good place to start. I don't believe this to be seizure activity based on your video, but rather intense itching/discomfort. Consult with your vet again for a diagnosis. If you are having trouble collecting the sample at home perhaps you can bring her to the vet clinic when you know she has a full bladder (don't let her pee for 4+ hrs prior to the visit) so they can get a good sample via cystocentesis.

Thank you for the input very useful! If i can't get a sample soon I'll keep her inside in morning and head straight for the truck giving the vet a heads up I'm on my way!
