    ❓ My almost 7 yr. old choc. lab has been urinating quite often lately. I noticed the other evening that she’d no sooner get up from squatting and squat down again. It happened this evening again. She is in her crate from 8:15 to about 3pm during the day. Sometimes when she is laying on the floor or on my bed she leaks a small puddle and does not even know. Could it be a kidney infection or what? Thanks!

    Probably not pyelonephritis (kidney infection) but very possibly a cystitis (bladder infection).

    Bring a first morning urine sample to your vet when you go for your exam. If you have a vet homeopath you should contact him/her first as this can often be resolved very quickly with a homeopathic remedy.
