Default Re: Signs of UTI?

UTIs will usually generate higher blood sugar and then, as a result, will cause more drinking and urinating from that for dogs who are fairly sensitive that way to higher BGs. Chris wasn't particularly so this wouldn't have been a sign for him. He wouldn't start consuming a lot of water until his blood sugar went very very high.

Also more frequent urinating in small quantities can be a sign.

If her BGs start to climb - consistently or erratically, I'd suspect the UTI might be present excluding any other changes or countersurfing!
