Incontinence in dogs
It is quite possible that the dog leaves a damp spot on its sleeping place, on the carpet or on the couch. As a rule, this is a one-off mishap and there is no reason to be alarmed. If the incident repeats itself regularly, physical problems must first be ruled out. Only your trusted veterinarian can help.
Until an illness has been ruled out, we will summarize everything you need to know about incontinence in dogs and provide helpful tips and comprehensive information.
What does incontinence in dogs mean?
Dog incontinence is when the animal loses urine while standing, walking, running or sleeping. Urine can be lost unnoticed in droplets or in large quantities. However, if this happens to a young dog, it is usually due to an exciting situation and is completely normal. This type of incontinence disappears with age once the puppy is house trained. Only if incontinence occurs in older dogs that have always been clean does the cause need to be examined by a veterinarian.
What can be the cause of incontinence in dogs?
When dogs leak urine uncontrollably, it may be due to fear, stress, or behavioral problems. Of course, incontinence in dogs can also have medical problems, but these definitely need to be checked out by a vet.
These can be causes of bladder weakness:
Can a tumor and bladder stones be ruled out? Does your loved one have diabetes or kidney problems? These make you thirsty and the urine can no longer be held in this large quantity. If the spine is injured, the nerves that control the bladder may be affected. There may be a urinary tract infection or a bladder infection. The function of the bladder can be impaired by a malformation, for example if the bladder sphincter no longer functions properly. A hormonal imbalance can also lead to incontinence.
Have there been any complications during castration?
Is the estrogen level too low?
Weak connective tissue in the pelvic floor area can lead to bladder weakness. Obesity can also be the cause of incontinence in dogs.
Are there dogs that are particularly susceptible to incontinence?
In principle, incontinence can occur equally in all dog breeds, genders and age groups. However, large dogs suffer from this more often than small dog breeds. Since the ureters are shorter in female dogs than in male dogs, urinary incontinence is more common. The German Shepherd, Boxer, Dalmatian, Rottweiler or Weimaraner seem to be more prone to incontinence. Golden Retrievers, Siberian Huskies, Terriers and Poodles have a congenital ureter defect that can lead to bladder weakness.
Incontinence in old dogs
The fact that incontinence occurs more often in older dogs than in young dogs is because the muscles that hold urine in the bladder simply become weaker with age. Falling testosterone levels in male dogs can also cause incontinence.
Can incontinence in dogs be treated?
There are many successful treatments for canine incontinence. If the dog loses urine due to an infection, antibiotics are helpful. Medication can also help with hormonal imbalances. Sometimes a change in living conditions is also helpful. If the cause is physical, surgery may help. Your veterinarian will determine the cause and recommend a successful treatment option.
My dog is leaking urine while lying down, what can I do?
If all medical options have been exhausted for your pet and your dog really has bladder weakness, there are a few good ways to make life easier for you and your pet. Dogs have very fine, sensitive noses and definitely do not want to contaminate their sleeping area. It bothers you a lot if the dog bed smells unpleasantly of urine and urine.

What you can do for your incontinent dog:

The most important thing is not to blame or even scold the dog if the accident occurs. He doesn't leak urine on purpose, he may not even realize what just happened to him.
Once all physical causes have been clarified and ruled out by the vet, psychological problems can also trigger incontinence. Try to find out if and what your loved one is afraid of.
