My 12 week old female, Eleanor has been very difficult to housebreak. She has already had one urinary tract infection and now I'm concerned the problem may be something worse. I have noticed that she is often licking herself and her vulva is often damp and also she sometimes drips a bit of urine.  I did some online research and came up with Ectopic Ureters.  Anyone have any experience with on this subject?  

Sounds like a UTI - I would ask you vet about the licking and dripping.  I would recommend letting her go through one heat before spaying her - as sometimes UTI issues are resolved after going through one heat. Wait 2-3 months after the first heat and then spay.

Well,  I took a urine sample in and she doesn't have an infection,  but her urine is full of crystals. He removed everything from her diet except her meals and I have to bring in another sample next week.
