Default How long can a child go without peeing?

I know, a totally obscure question depending on a lot of varibles, but my 32-pound 3yo daughter has peed once in the last 24 hours (a small amount). I took her to the doctor today, because I do believe she has a UTI/kidney infection (temp of 102.8 and pain when urinating), but she wasn't able to pee in a cup at the doctors office or here at home. She is not drinking a whole lot of fluids (no matter how hard I try) but she has had at least 30-40 oz in the course of the last 8 hours or so. The doctor didn't seemed too concerned about her peeing so little, but I can't imagine not going pee every few hours? Am I being a worry wort? Thoughts, suggestions...

Hmmm, is she holding it because it hurts?

I know that she is hurting sometimes when she pees, but she was actually trying very hard (I think, how does one gauge such things?) both at the doctor's office and here at home, so I really don't think it is fear of pain?

Does she show any other signs of dehydration- sunken eyes, taught skin...
maybe askdrsears.com has some more info on peeing/dehydration.

She really doesn't have any signs of dehydration, and even though she isn't drinking much, she is drinking enough that I would think should make her need to go pee more than once in 24 hours. I have been trying to find something out looking on the internet, and having trouble finding any info I need.

My daughter often only goes once or twice in a day. She has a bladder of steel.

When I was little I was catheterized and was scared pee afterward. I think I remember not going for almost 2 days.
