Help! Our 5.5 y.o. has started peeing in the house after being housebroken for a year and a half. He has been checked out by the vet w/no medical issues. He doesn't ever lift his leg when we're with him, but he seems to do it the minute we leave the house (even if we're just in the garage or yard). We know that the problem must be separation anxiety and we are working on that... but I find it so odd that he is lifting his leg after a year and a half of being totally housebroken. We have not had any lifestyle changes. Has this happened to anyone else? Any thoughts?
Hello everyone, I recently had my 10-ish year old galgo in for bloodwork and urine testing (routine yearly check-up). Looking for advice on the results: Colour: yellow Clarity: cloudy Specific gravity: 1.021 pH: 8.5 Protein: trace no sign of bacteria in urine blood work all normal Care of the Racing Greyhound suggests that low SG and high pH can mean UTI (!?). She did have a pretty bad vaginal infection (but no UTI) last fall/winter that she was on antibiotics for. Symptoms cleared up, although the post-meds culture still showed significant bacterial growth. BUT, these last results are almost identical to blood/urine tests that was done back in 2015 when she was 8 (SG: 1.019, pH: 8.5, trace protein) although they differ slightly from tests done in 2012 when she was 5 (SG:1.053, pH: 6, trace protein). Should I be concerned? Further tests needed? She eats raw, has never had any major medical issues, although we are dealing with very occasional incontinence sometimes nowadays (when she lays down). The fact the she's into double digits now, and also that our senior died in December, means "high alert" mode for anything that could be an issue.
so, all has been well with Jonny and we've finalised the adoption by ending the trial period early. It's as though we've had him with us for years! Oddly, though, today specifically, every time Jonny falls asleep he does a wee. regardless of where he is. he did it last night (which i realised this morning) and I thought it might be just because he was obviously busting to go. I took him for a walk when I got up at 6:30 immediately and he did a huge wee. So he must have had a lot stored up. Poor dude. (we will remove the water bowl at night) but he has just done it again while sleeping on the outside couch.... not sure if anyone has any insight. My partner thinks it's because he has been missing me. We are trialling him upstairs with my partner while he is home from work for the next couple of days instead of in the office with me as per all of the last week. I'm just not sure about that, despite reading up on separation anxiety because: 1 - my partner is with him 2 - he did it while sleeping as opposed to consciously awake In saying that, he did accidentally go in the dining room last night because we were late taking him outside so he could go. Blamed ourselves for that one, but has that maybe started something?
