Hi everyone, one of my chinnies visited the vet today with a suspected UTI. He's been given pain relief and an X-ray to rule out other things, but they've asked me to try and collect a urine sample. Does anyone have any advice? Thank you in advance!

The only thing I can suggest is during the day while he is sleepy take off the fleece liners and have him pee on the plastic pans. Then you could collect from there.
Thanks for your reply! If anyone else ever has this issue, I realised that if you let them wee on their liners and then use a pipette to sick it up from the fleece, you can collect most of the urine :)
