Excessive urinating with my beagle
I have a beautiful beagle that is about 9 years old. I recently noticed that she is trying to urinate A LOT. We have a doggy door so she comes and goes in the back yard as she pleases. I only recently noticed that she squats to pee for several seconds then goes to another spot and squats some more. This will go on for a good 10-15 minutes. I've tried going outside to see if anything is coming out but I really can't tell since it's in the grass and once I walk up to her she stops.
Other than this she is acting completely normal. Very healthy appetite and happy and playful as usual. I called the vet to bring her in and they said I would have to drop her off in the morning and leave her there all day so they could collect the urine throughout the day. I know this would really freak her out so I'm dreading bringing her in this Friday (the soonest they could take her). I guess I'm just trying to get an idea of what to expect and possible costs. I'll pay anything to get her well but it's going to be tough.
