For the pee, it almost seemed to release while sitting (or just getting up from a sit, when I noticed it, she was leaning a bit forward in a bit of a squat, but not full out like normal) to get into the car. I didn't actually see it happen though, but I was assuming it was from her being inside at daycare and maybe really having to pee. she will occasionally pee in parking lots, and not go to the grass.
Otherwise, she's not had any accidents or straining to pee or anything like that. When she was about 3 months old she got puppy vaginitis. I had her to the vets twice and the vet did NOT take a urine sample but was completely confident it was not a urinary infection or anything. Actually, when she got it she'd just been put on antibiotics for possible coccidia exposure (unlikely, but we just treated her in case, because she had loose poop from Origen food). She does still have a small amount of discharge from time to time (from what I've read they grow out of this condition slowly). It's way better, but I noticed this the other day and she was cleaning herself.
Could it possibly be a UTI, and if so, could that cause a change in her gait if she were in pain? I'm not seeing any other symptoms though.
I have been gently palpating her legs and muscles in her hind end, but not really had any reaction. She seems to be standing normally on it, and other than the odd moment, in a walk it seem like there's nothing wrong. I can try to get a video tonight, if that helps?
One thing I did last night is while she was chewing on a bully stick, I rubbed her tummy to get her to roll over a bit more. This was no problem, but I gently flexed her left hind leg outward (I just gently held by her stifle and rotated out a little, not forcefully) and she whined a little again (didn't stop chewing mind you lol). So that motion seemed to be more uncomfortable for her.
