I recently got my first puppy, almost 5 month lab mix, last weekend I noticed blood in her urine. In a panic i called our vet and they were closed but left an emergency vet to go to. So we went in and she was diagnosed with a uti and was put on antibiotics. After 2 days, she was right back to herself but now with only 2 pills left she seems fine but still squats a few times a day with nothing coming out. Monday l have to take a little urine into our regular vet for a recheck. Does all the extra squatting mean she still has the infection? Also, I've read so much about chronic uti's I'm getting in a panic. Is this common? Is there anything I should be doing? Thanks for any advice.

Yeah vet's just really gives an antibiotic for dogs, it's really hard when one has an infection, they can urinate often, straining to urinate and other unusual behaviors that can be the effect of UTI. I don't know what advise to give sorry maybe others can.
