She most likely has a UTI. Please bring her to vet asap so they can test her urine and start antibiotics. Let us know how she does.

UTIs are uncomfortable and the infection can spread to the kidneys if left untreated for too long. I'd take her to an emergency vet if it's an option.

I've never seen anything to indicate that not being spayed would cause more UTIs. Girls are more prone to UTIs than males due to a shorter urethra (just like in humans). Whether or not they're intact doesn't change anything about that.

Good to know.I'm, unfortunately, unable to take her to the vet asap as my wife has been having severe complications with her pregnancy.
My mother-in-law will be here Monday so I won't be leaving her alone while I go to the vet.
Will Lily be fine till Monday, or should I try to make other arrangements?I'm a complete novice when it comes to female dogs, so anything you can tell me is helpful.

Keep her hydrated and make sure you're clear to the vet about when the symptoms started. If I were the vet I'd probably break out the bigger gun antibiotics in case it had already spread to the kidneys.

Until you can go to the vet..maybe mix 1 cap-ful of apple cider vinegar in her drinking water (per 16 oz) ..IF it is a UTI caused by e-coli..it will make it harder for the bacteria to survive..Not a cure, just a precaution. Side effect is better puppy breath!

Definitely yesssss although it can be encountered in spayed females aswell. Can you check if she has fever or not since UTI may not be the only reason. Just to ask when was her last heat

Her last heat was in march,right now she's pretty calm and hasn't had a accident since Saturday morning.I started on the apple cider and making sure she has plenty of water.I'll let you all know what the vet says.

Hope all goes well. I assume her appettit is also fine. Just to rule out of course pyometra out of a female dog's life, hope she will get spayed very soon. Bonne chance!
