Hi there,

I'm fairly certain my 3 month old pup has a UTI. Sometimes after she pees theres a thick yellow substance leftover. I called my vet and am going in on Monday to have her checked.

In the meantime, how common are UTI's in puppy's?

Bailey had a UTI a few months back. She was urinating often and her stomach was upset. It took a round of antibiotics to clear it up. She is five though and I know they are fairly common in adult dogs.
Make sure your puppy is getting enough water and going to the bathroom enough. I read awhile ago that moistening their food with water and giving them citrus fruit juices help also. I do moisten her food but have never tried the juice. Your vet will be able to give you more information, though!

My puppy had one recently. My vet told me that they are common in female puppies. She prescribed a round of antibiotics and it cleared up. Good luck!

Stella had a UTI recently (but she is an older girl at 8 years!). IMO, the best thing to remember is water, and lots of it! Make it distilled or filtered. This is important. You might also want to add a cranberry supplement. I use Solid Gold's Berry Balance. I also add can food to the dry and mix with water. Stella is notorious for not drinking alot, so I feel this is what contributed to her UTI because at the time she was eating a high-protein dry food without any moist additions. That has changed. She now gets a moderate protein dry (Eagle Pack Holistic Select Anchovy), can food (varieties like EPHS, Innova, Wellness 95%, Instinct, etc.), supplements (SG Berry Balance, and Wholistic Canine Complete Joint Mobility) and plenty of filtered water added in. Good Luck!
