Guest teachckg Posted July 19, 2008 Share Posted July 19, 2008 (edited) Recently my girl Kate has been leaking. When she naps sometimes she gets up to find a wet spot behind. She has been doing this off and on for the last three to four weeks. It never happens during the night but usually in the evening, sometimes after exercise. We have been taking her out every two hours and she urinates normally. After it happens she is obviously upset-- she licks the spot where the urine has been left behind and often cleans herself. We took her to the Vet when it first happened and they detected some bacteria so we put her on meds for a Urinary Tract Infection. Although the bacteria disappeared, she is still leaking. The Vet is suggesting putting her on PPA, but I am concerned. She is young to be on it. The Vet noticed a little inflammation so we are putting her on 5 days of meds to see if the inflammation goes down and the leaking stops. I am concerned... I mentioned a natural approach to my vet and she really was not informative. Any insight you can give me about what it could be or how we could treat it would be great. Is it normal for a dog this young to have urinary incontinence? Edited July 19, 2008 by teachckg Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
