Poor little Luna suffers from spay incontinence. About three days after her spay, she woke up on saturated dog bed. Since then, we stopped giving her water an hour before bed just like the vet said.

Anyway it has gotten worse. I have always left the door open so they can bolt to go out first thing in the morning but now she BOLTS and does a funky crab walk two feet out the door and starts pee walking.

Even after withholding water, taking her out before bed, and right in the morning, I'm still finding some wet spots.

I have a feeling if she wore a diaper, she'd try to play with it and I'm not sure about coning her for the rest of her life. We have a comfy cone but still.

Talk to your vet, they can probably prescribe something to help :). Also consider having a pee pad indoors...I know it's not ideal but it may give her a place to go in an "emergency".

Yes she is crate trained and has piddled on her blankets. Not enough so its saturated but enough that when I throw them in my washer I can smell a hint of it.

Talk to the vet. She may get better with time. Aster was spayed early her second year. She did have trouble, but not until around 12 years old. A hormone capsule a week took care of the problem. I am not sure how it would work for a younger dog.

Note, I was going through my old bookmarks and found one for this site. I am wondering why I registered and never did much.

Depending on the severity of the problem, there may be remedies.

Have you asked the vet about Phenylpropanolamine Hydrochloride? My dog has a slight incontinence problem, and this fixes it - he leaks in his sleep and when he gets excited.

Phenyl.Hcl is a decongestant that used to be used in Contact. It is still used in much higher doses to shrink the dog's sphincter and prevent leaking. My 40-lb dog gets 25mg twice a day.

It could also be complications from spay,, if your dr dosent seem to be addressing thourally you may need to go to another vet use your gut instinct if what your vet is telling you dosent seem right go to another one.. good luck.. and yea it could be a number of things but if your vet is ignoring it its time for a different one.

Yeeaaah we don't do drugs here lol. But in awesome news, vets got her on marshmallow and it has severely improved everything. And yes it was from the spay. We had her on hormones for a couple days and she wasn't Luna the entire time. It did work though.
