I got a new dog. She's a cute little girl part chihauhau part Beagle, seems very bright and very spoiled, one year old. Problem is she acts like she has a bladder infection and in all my years with dogs I've never in my life had a dog with a bladder infection. Can dogs get them? She seems to want to go to the bathroom every hour except at night when she lets me sleep about three hours. When she goes she goes a bit the first time and then just a drop or two three or four more times and seems to squat there for a long time trying to get it out. She also has trouble holding it. We were driving today and she asked to go out and of course we couldn't just stop that minute and she peed on the seat. So, if this is indeed a bladder infection is this a 'go to the vet' problem or is there something I can do about it at home? Thanks everyone.
