Urinary Incontinence in 18 month Husky

Hello! My boyfriend and I just rescued a sweet 18 month old female Husky, Bailey. The rescue told us she had been treated for a UTI not too long ago but was over it. We realized shortly after we got her home that she left little wet dribble spots wherever she would sit. When she took a nap she woke up and had left a larger wet spot. It soon came to our realization that everywhere she sat or layed down she was "leaking" urine on herself. She goes outside for potties and isn't actually peeing in the house, she doesn't even realize it's happening. We contacted our vet as we have a great relationship with him and he wants to do a urine test to see if it is still her UTI or if she has an underlying issue for the leaking such as spay incontiennce or an ectopic ueryter. We have put her in doggy diapers for now to manage the issue and layed puppy pads in her sleep area.

I was just wondering if there is anyone out there who has had this issue and how it was resolved or their overall experience? I know there are medications and sometimes surgery depending on the underlying cause. We just want her to be healthy and are really worried.

Do you know how early she was spayed? This sounds like one of ours who is on hormone treatments, solved it completely.

Only a vet could help you figure it out properly though.

I'm so glad to hear your pup was able to be treated with medication!

We don't know when she was spayed. Unfortunately we just don't have a lot of files on her medical history since she's a rescue and been all over the place. The vet did a urine analysis and said it was positive for a very severe UTI. However the rescue said they treated her twice for a UTI in the last couple weeks so either it's the same UTI that was never effectively treated, or she may have an underlying incontnence issue such as spay incontinence that is causing the frequent UTIs.

UTIs can be tricky, my BC had trouble with them when she was a pup. Severe stress can make them susceptible to infections so it wouldn't surprise me to see one soon after adoption.

Thanks for all of your input! We got some meds for her UTI so hopefully it will clear up and as she adjusts to the new home that will help too. Fingers crossed her incontinence goes away with the UTI! 😄

If it was a severe UTI, it can take a long time for her to get over it, and repair damage from an unchecked infection, even after the infection is gone. By all means talk to your Vet, but it may just take time for her to completely recover.

Yeah I can imagaine it may take a while considering it was never properly treated to begin with. I just want her to be feeling better she has to be so uncomfortable, poor thing. Just going to take it one step at a time and get her healthy. Thank you for everything!!
