Hi there, you are through to Dr. Jake Im a UK based vet. im sorry to hear of your concerns with your dog, Roscoe.
urinary tract infections are common in dogs, more so in females but they can occur in males also. this often results in dogs doing lots of small voids of urine , this can be a few drips and they can often strain or vocalise and look painful when this happens. these often occur due to a bacterial infection. some dogs can become quite poorly with this and can lead to vomiting and lethargy due to running a fever but the majority of dogs generally still are well. you have done the correct thing to book an appointment, waiting until tomorrow/monday for this condition is fine.
your vet will be able to conduct a full examination. it would be a good idea to try and catch a urine sample in a clean plastic container for your vet to analyse to confirm that an infection is present. they will be able to provide appropriate medications ( anti inflammatories and antibiotics) to treat this, if this persists and doesnt clear up with medications then they may advise imaging of the bladder and a sample of the urine to be sent of to the laboratory for culture
i hope all this information helps
