    Defaultseparation anxiety or sick?

    Hi, I was hoping you guys would have guesses as to what's going on with my 13 month old black girl. She has wet her crate like 3 nights in a row now ... (she didn't even pee in her crate when she was a baby) We have no idea why she is peeing in there. For attention? Maybe she's sick and can't hold it in?

    The only thing that is different is I just got a job and I'm home a lot less now. 3 days a week I work 12 hours and mon-tue-wed of this week I was gone. I live with my family so it's not as if she's home alone all the time or anything. I don't know if she's just spoiled and doesn't want to be in her crate (she usually loves her crate) I was thinking of calling the vet and describing the problem, but I thought I'd get some of your opinions first. Last night she peed in her crate so I took her up to my room and she slept in my bed the whole night through... not a peep out of her. Is she a queen or is she sick? Any thoughts?

    I'd have her checked for a UTI first off and go from there.

    UTI would be my first choice also. SA usually takes different forms.
