Default Bed Wetting

Has anyone experienced this? Shasta was house trained from day one and has always done well. We have noticed though that when she get very comfortable( Very relaxed) she will wet herself. Is there any reason for this, has anyone experienced this? She has been banned from our bed for this reason. It doesn't occur as frequently now, but every now and then when she is sleeping she'll have an accident. Please advise

How old is Shasta? Has she ever had a litter?

Have you had her checked for a urinary tract infection? This sounds like something for a vet to address. The fact that it is a problem that developed and has now abated somewhat leads me to suspect that it is not something chronic, but perhaps something more like an irritation such as an infection might cause. It could even have an allergic cause, but I would think that's a long shot. Keep an eye on her, as she may be leaking at other times but it's not easily noticed as it is when she's stationary and relaxed. Take all the info you can to your vet; any detail might help to identify the problem.

Keep us posted.

That sounds like a job for the vet.

Thumbs up

Thanks for the advice - did ask the vet at her last annual visit. She came out with a clean bill of health. He put it down to some change in her routine that has upset her. I don't know if I can agree to that as we have always stuck pretty close to the same schedule/ feeding times/ exersise/ and social habits as before. Will keep an eye on it though. She'll be at the vets here in a few months for her shots so will bring it up again and see what is recommended this time.. Thanks for your imput.

This is not meant as a criticism of your vet, so please take it at face value: Even the best professional can't be right 100% of the time. Ask yourself if this is a conclusion that makes you comfortable. If this were your pediatrician telling you this, would you be satisfied, or would you seek a second opinion, either from another pediatrician or from a physician with more expertise in the area? Sometimes, when a problem with our pets does not abate or disappear with standard veterinary practices, your vet can refer you to a veterinary specialist. It's no reflection on your vet's capabilities, as you must remember, veterinary medicine is infinitely more complex than human practice. Vets have to have knowledge of different species. A vet's patients can't describe what the symptoms are.

Did you know the requirements for admission to veterinary school are more stringent and it's more difficult to get into a veterinary college than it is to med school?

This just occurred to me. Has her physical activity and exercise decreased? Maybe there is a loss of muscle tone that is allowing these muscles to be overly relaxed when she sleeps.

The only time my dog EVER wet his bed is when the doc put him on meds that didn't agree with him...However, while Jack is sleeping he will let out a little turd once in a while...I guess they sometimes have dreams about pooping!!
