Periodic Incontinence

Recommended Posts

I have a 5 year old female Border Collie.  For the past year, every 3 months, give or take a couple of days, she has had an episode of incontinence or some sort of leakage.  I am at a loss. My vet put her on a cranberry supplement, but she still has the episode every 3 months. Any thoughts? Thanks.

My golden used to do this. Every once in awhile, she would pee as she slept. It started when she was 3 or 4. She ended up just growing out of it. Keep watch on her water intake and if you take her out 4 times a day, bump it up to 5 even if she doesn't have to go.

There are medical conditions that can cause this; I have a friend whose dog had the same problem as yours and the vet was able to help with medication. Sorry, but I don't remember the name of the condition. I would take the dog for a second vet opinion and maybe some tests if she were mine. Best of luck.

One of the side effects of spay can be incontinence. I'll second the vet check. Proin helps a lot of dogs.

Proin is awesome. We used it for my old guy who had incontinence.

Yes, this.
