Dog is peeing when she gets hot???

We have a Brittany Spaniel that is 2 years old. I recently noticed that she sometimes has pee dripping slowly from her. But it only seems to happen when she is hot/over heated. Sometimes when she comes in from outside, she will lay down on the tile floor to cool off and when she gets up there is a puddle. Would anyone know what this might be?? Was going to call the vet tomorrow to make an appointment.

  • It sounds like she has some incontinence issues

  • If she was an older spayed female I would say incontinence, which is very common. I would definetely take her in to rule out a bladder infection/ bladder stones. Otherwise, it could be behavior. GL!

  • Incontinence can happen at any age although it is more commonly seen in older dogs it is not unusual to see in young dogs as well.

  • I have been doing a little searching online and came across this article ~
    Definitely will be making a trip to the vet this week to figure this out. Doesn't seem to be bothering her at the moment. But I am getting tired of cleaning up after her!! And making sure she doesn't lay on the carpeted floor to cool off...
