Urinary Incontinence in Dogs

Urinary incontinence is an unpleasant condition although it is usually causes more of a nuisance to owners, than distress to their pets. It is more common in females than males because of the anatomical differences in the urinary tract - especially the shorter urethra in the female. Some dogs are more likely to develop incontinence than others - particularly spayed females and certain breeds.

Your partner in caring for your pet should be your veterinary surgeon. Regular visits to a vet for routine health checks and preventative health care such as vaccination allow you and your pet to build a relationship with your vet. If you have any concerns about your pet's health make sure you mention them to your vet.
