    Dear Friends –
    Does anyone know how long a female dog can “safely” hold her urine? My dog is undergoing some sort of of unresolved issue and one of her “symptoms” is refusing to urinate. She daily holds it at least 24 hours. Last weekend she refused to go for 36 hours. This has been going on for 2 1/2 weeks.

    One vet told me no more than 24 hours. Another said no more than 48.

    When is it an “emergency” and I have to take her in to be expressed or even catheterized?

    Thank you.
