I should have video taped me trying to obtain a urine specimen (per her vets request) from Coda (21 month old female Mal)...would've definitely given you all a laugh - my neighbors said it was so funny they were crying. I did not get a drop:-( I gotta go back to the vet tomorrow with a specimen...easier said then done. Took her to the vet Friday because I believed she had either a UTI or something worse...white cell counts were normal as were red cell counts. Had to have someone else (Justin) take her in the office because she somehow thinks it is her duty to protect me from the vet - she gets very nasty if I am there. She's fine when I am not there.

Other then having her on a leash and trying to get the catch pan under her when she finally decides to go - anyone have any clever suggestions? She will not urinate anywhere but in HER backyard....I know she's a strange girl and it makes it very difficult when trialing but that's another story.....:-(

I had to do this once with a very suspicious female Malinois pup. I cut a plastic solo cup about 2/3 of the way from the top to make a smaller "cup." Then I taped the cup to one of those driveway marker poles (long and skinny fiberglass pole). When she squatted to pee, I shoved the cup-on-a-pole under her. You have to be fast, but it worked for me.

I have used a disposable mini pie tin on a pole. Bigger surface and still flat for fitting under a squatter.

You want a clean catch, so you stick it under after the first little bit comes out, kind of mid-stream.

Also, vitally important -- HAVE THE OTHER CONTAINER READY! :lol:

You don't want to wander around for a long time searching out a bottle with a cap while you balance the pan-on-a-pole.

The paper cup or disposable pan have something good in common: they bend to form a pour spout for transferring to the covered bottle.

(All must be clean, of course, so as not to taint the sample.)

Just watch, she'll try the pie tin and pole method, go to pour the urine from one container to the other and get jumped on by the hyper dog and spill it all over herself ;)

Your neighbors are gonna love you!

Thanks Connie as well. Got my rig all ready and after two seperate times of walking her on lead around the yard (after her afternoon nap) - she just looks at me like What?????? Go Potty, which she knows, get's the same look. Should be a fun day for the both of us.

Mike don't jinx me :-$

Can't remember where I read this, but someone suggested using a soup ladle? I assume you could keep it behind you and slip it under in the nick of time lol...Good luck!

All those sound like pretty good ideas. I have never had to get a specimen from a dog. Let me know how this works out for you Lacey!

Well after many walks around the yard, numerous times.....my husband finally took pity upon me and decided to take Coda for a walk himself. He came back with the specimen(hopefully it is hers and not his [-o< ). The "rig" worked. Now I owe him big time:smile: ;) .

I remember back in the day trying to get those stupid samples.

The last time I suspected jinx had an infection I went to the vet with her to get some clavamox, the dang vet wanted to stick a needle in her stomach to get a sample. I think with clavamox being such a restricted medicine:^o that they have people do this as some sort of passive aggro joke. I told her no to the needle, and just to give me the clavamox.

Holy sh*t. I've had the vet "go fishing" for fecal smaples, but I'd be pretty startled if a vet wanted to use a needle into the bladder to get a urine spec.
