so, as some of you may know i recently got a puppy. i didn't want one, for many reasons, anxiety being one of them, but my husband wore me down and i gave in. i regret it like i knew i would, but i'm dealing with it. we've had her for 2 weeks now, she's 11 weeks old.
i am coping pretty well, but have encountered a little bump in the road here.
she may have a UTI(bladder infection). i have to take her in today. what scares me is that I know UTI's are caused by ecoli. i have been cleaning up her pee, which would have ecoli in it if she has a UTI!! also, she peed in her crate and laid in it(FUN), and so, my son touched her before we knew that. i also touched her blankets which had pee on them before i knew about the possible UTI. she's peed on the floor, we hold her, pet her, carry her around...she licks herself then us
so...i'm feeling scared about us contracting ecoli!
i know it's a risk. i know i have to live with it, but i sure wish i could get some reassurance somehow.
anyone want a puppy?
