1- I am confused, so she wants to go out and tries to urinate and nothing comes out, is that what is happening?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

no, sorry, she comes to me to say she wants to go out as normal but she only walks around & never trys to pee, could it be her liver or nerves due to her being re homed, she does have large nips so could she have had pups & been taken away from them to early, as i said we got her from a rehomeing centre & thay had no ider, she booked into a vet on the 16th of april at 8am to be spade.

many thanks

Is she showing any other symptoms?

not as hungry or thirsty as normal & she plays as normal so iam lost as shes my 3rd staffy

Bob, the symptoms that you are describing are Not related to liver disease or a urinary tract disease. It sounds like she may be under some stress from being in a new home and without the puppies if they were taken too early.
I would recommend you set a scheduled walk with her (2-3 times a day) and do not deviate from your set schedule. In the next few days she will get use to her new home, just need to give her some time.
