Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

How long has Daisy had these signs?

Have you seen her trying to pass urine more often? Any straining?

When she goes is she passing large or small volumes?

Any swelling of the genital tissue?
