9 month old pup leaking urine?????

Okay, my almost 9 month old german shorthair pointer puppy started uh, leaking urine. I noticed it wihile she was lying on the floor playing with a toy. She got up and I noticed some wet spot on my carpet. Now, I am not sure she is urinating more than usual. She still uses potty pads inside my home. Any idea what this is? Of course I am going to call my vet tomorrow morning. Just anything in the mean time.Thanks............. Oh, she is spayed.

Could just be a side affect of the spay, some females leak urine occasionally after being spayed, especially if they're spayed early. If your vet agrees thats what it is let me know, a friend has a lab with the same problem and found a supplement that helps her dog ALOT. I'll get the name from her.

Well, she got spayed when she was 2 months. Not my choice, it was the humane society in my town that decided that. So roughly 7 months later for her???

2months is young, but I have its not a problem I have personal experience with, my understanding is that it has to do with the shape of her innerds and and what not so it wouldn't surprise me that it wouldn't show up till a little later in maturity

I'm not saying it has to be that, just that it could be. Definetly check with your vet.

Yeah, I'm gonna call the vet tomorrow. The reason they spayed her so young is that it is there policy. I asked them could I not get her spayed on my own when she gets older, but they said that they prefer to do it before they leave the shelter. I think they just don't won't anymore puppies back to their shelter. I understand it though.

My sisters dog started having the same problem with her dog, she was also spayed at two months.
Ruth, what is that supplement called? Her dog was on Proin, and shes finally gotten her off of it for the time being. Thanks!

Emma, I'm in the er vet right this moment, but if I haven't posted it by tomorrow night remind me please. (The vets busy as heck and diarrhea isn't immedietly life threatening, so we're waiting)

Jamie, thats not an unusual policy unfortunetly. I'd not mind so much except it can cause other problems, like this.

Dogs spayed at less than 12 weeks old have the highest incidence of spay incontinence, so that may very well be the issue. If it is, Proin is the drug of choice.

However, it may also be a urinary tract infection, so she should see your vet to rule that out before it gets worse.

Emma, this: Only Natural Pet Canine Bladder Control Dog Supplement is what she uses, I have no idea if she tried Proin or not so I can't compare, but next time I see her I'll try to remember to ask. She also said that if you buy two bottles its free shipping, and that last time she bought it (which was last month) the coupon code "58COUPONS" got her 10% off the order for anyone who's interested (though she has no idea if the code's still good or not, but figures its worth trying).
