A. For pets that recently had an operation like spaying/neutering. The immune system can be depressed during the recovery phases, which can potentially make pets susceptible to skin infections and bladder infections. I would highly recommend you schedule an appointment with your veterinarian to have a urinalysis done on your pet to check for signs of a UTI (ie. Bacteria, WBC's, RBC's.) If a UTI is found, then the appropriate treatment (ie. Antibiotics, anti-inflammatories) can be implemented in an attempt to clear the infection.
Best of luck!
