Anyone know the best way? Does the vet usually want you to do this if they are checking for kidney/urinary tract infection? I remember when Spanky was a puppy, and we had to catch one, but I don't remember why. We tried with a tin pie pan, and it scared him to death!! We did get a little, though, but it wasn't easy. I'm taking Spanky in Wednesday, and I'm wondering if I need to go ahead and get a sample. He's asking to go outside constantly, and I just got to thinking maybe he's having some trouble. His stools are normal. We just switched him from a prescription diet for weight loss (Sci. Diet) to a much higher quality food, and he's just more active all around since then, so maybe he's just wanting to outside and fiddle around. Anyway, I'm trying to decide whether to go ahead and try to get a urine sampe when I go in, and, if I do, what's the easiest way to do it.
