I feel your pain, been there. My girl came with a UTI and she was 6 months old before all her health issues were resolved. Taking her out every 15/20 minutes for the 1st 4 months was exhausting. She could last about 2 hrs at night. We changed vets a couple of times but once we got the sterile culture and on the right medication... and 6 weeks on this medication, life was good. She hasn't had a problem since. But we didn't have any physical reason for the UTI, just bacteria.
I wish I had some advice and certainly hope as the puppy grows it helps with your situation. So your vet is telling you to continue the way you are until after her 1st heat cycle? Just me but don't see how spaying her now will resolve anything and they cannot do surgery if she has an infection.
Hang in there ... maybe find a pet sitter or board her with the vet and get a good nights sleep? It's amazing how a little sleep can help.
Just curious, did the breeder offer you any insight or suggestions?
