but she doesnt seem to be in any pain,

It's painful, even if she doesn't act like it is.
but either way the sample is on the way to ... i did all i could untill the results come back

When will that be? When I've had animals tested for a UTI, it was done in-house, on the spot.

Good call. I missed that.
We normally we find out very quickly if an antibiotic is required.

Good lord. Do you not have an emergency vet in your general(ish) area? If there is any chance this puppy has a UTI, making it suffer until Tuesday is beyond cruel.

both vets i called (very reputable) didn't think it was as big of a deal as your making it out to be, she hasn't exhibitied the slightest bit of discomfort. and she doesnt even try and pee inside its only when i take her out, she'll squat three times instead of her usual one. I trust the vet because we have been going to him for 10 years and if he tells me shes fine till tuesday thats the word i go by, by no means am i trying to insult any of you, you guys have been more then helpful and i appreciate your love of helping animals

Really, that doesn't mean anything. I've had dogs, G-d knows, with UTIs and I've had a dog with a chronic UTI, and the norm is to behave normally aside from drinking and peeing more. You still don't know for a fact that's what it is, but it's something that I would treat seriously, particularly in a young dog. The UTI is uncomfortable but not a big deal by itself, but the reason to treat it promptly is to avoid having it go systemic, at which point you really would have a very serious problem. Best policy is to nip these things in the bud, particularly with a very young or very old or otherwise immuno-funky dog.

Vit C won't do anything.. Neither will lots of love. planty of Bathroom breaks will keep you from cleaning up so much, but she will still be in tons of pain. Even though you don't think she's in any. Vets usually give antibiotics while awaiting the results, because they KNOW it's agonizing. I'd say screw that vet, and find another one,or run her into an emergency vet somewhere. ANYWHERE.

I'd fire BOTH of those vets. Don't trust your idjit vet. One time my puppy had a UTI, and he was on vacation, said he'd be backin 3 days. Stuff that! I asked him, Have "YOU" ever had a UTI? he said Noo. I HAVE!! and although they don't "appear" to be in pain, it's AGONY. EVERY vet should have a UTI just once, and they would never take it lightly again. They would treat it as the emergency that it IS
