Default litte squeal

For the past couple of days I've been hearing quiet little sqeals occasionally. It's coming from Quinn and today I noticed that she made a sound while urinating. I'm really not sure if it was during or after or even has a link. I heard the sound checked and she was standing there with what looked like fresh pee so I assumed. I can't tell if she's doing it because of pain or not. She looks fine, her behaviour/personality is the same, eating normally, running normal and waking up at a normal time.
There are two changes to her life, the heat and I've added the low fat Blue Buffalo because Quinn and Sasha have started putting on weight. I'm worried and hoping someone can give some advice. Maybe I'm just overreacting.

I've read other post with this similar thing happening, and it sounds like it might be a UTI if it hurts her to urinate. Of course, its always best to get a professional veterinary opinion.

I was kind of thinking that. I will listen tonight and if it continues then I will schedule a vet appt. I'm assuming they will prescribe an antibiotic so hopefully not too expensive. Thanks!

Sounds like a possible uti to me too. Vet visit is probably good. They really need to do a urine draw directly from her to make sure. If it is a uti she will most likely be given a pain med and an antibiotic. It can be a little pricey, but necessary. If you let a uti go you will have a lot more problems and could potentially lose her.

She just got up and did her regular habits so I watched. She went pee in her regular spot and didn't make a sound. Maybe the sound and seeing pee was completely unrelated. I will keep an eye on her to make sure though. Her annual vet checkup is due soon anyways. Thanks guys!

Hi Guys,

The other night she squealed again this time I saw she was pooping. Is she constipated? I stop feeding her crickets and worms 2 nights in a row now because I think I read on here that the exoskeleton can cause some constipation. Correct? It's been awhile in between little squeals but I'm still worried.
I'll be sure to mention this to the vet. However, her and Sasha aren't going to the vet until after our wedding (no time and money). Any input is appreciated.
