we are taking new dog to the vet tomorrow

Zoey has been home with us just a little over a week now, and at first we just put off the accidents as getting used to her new home but it is not getting better and may actually be a little worse. She pees way too frequently than our current dog. Marshall pees 3-4 times a day (morning, early afternoon, night, then right before bed--maybe an extra time when we are playing at the park). Zoey meanwhile pees about 8-9 times a day if she is not in a crate. Sometimes it would only be 2-3 hrs in between pees. We slowly switch her to a different food when she got home and he is on the new food for 2-3 days now. Not sure if this is contributing to the issue. Her pooping is fine (2x a day and firm).

How do I catch pee from her when she pees so low? I am thinking of doing this before I head to the vet in the morning, in case it's a UTI. Is this necessary, the vet did not ask us to do this.

Any other possibilities...I can't wait to figure out what is wrong with her.

How old is she? Puppies pee a lot. I took J out every hour she was awake for the first couple weeks I had her.

Oopps I forgot, she is 19 months old. Also, she seems fine, a little hyper actually and so funny and sweet.

She is the same age as J (Jordan). Jordan pees 5-6 times a day. I think it's a good idea to check for a UTI.

Slip a low sided bowl under her. If you can't catch a sample, don't let her pee before her appointment. And if she has an accident in the clinic, ask the employees to save a sample before cleaning it up.

My vet prefers to take the urine directly from the bladder for a cleaner sample, so if you can't catch a sample it's not a huge deal.

I think definitely it's a good idea to have everything checked out anyway.

My golden girl has had dozens of UTI and we have never brought in our own sample. My vet, also, likes to get a clean sample directly from the bladder. Hope all goes well with your vet visit!
