My 8 year old DD Izzy has had a couple of accidents in the past 6 weeks or so. It has happened three time so far. I guess it could have happened when she was laying around in the yard too, I don't know. She will be sleeping and when she stands up, there is a puddle under her butt. It isn't a lot, maybe a 6" diameter. Her hip that is down is also wet. Luckily it is on hard floors. I soaked it up each time with a white paper towel and it is just slightly yellow almost clear and there really isn't any odor to it. I am 99.9% sure it is pee though.

What could cause this? She is on ProPlan dog food. She has been on ProPlan for over a year, but the current flavor for only about 4-5 months. She gets plenty of water, actually she seems thirsty a lot and drinks a ton. She gets plenty of exercise. Fixed female, never bred.

I haven't noticed it after any type of activity. The first two times were both the same day. The third time was this morning.

What are your thoughts? Is she just getting old? Should I see a vet?

Two other dogs on the same food with no issues.

See the vet. It can be medicated.

My Beagle did this back in November. Pretty sure she got into some ashes and charcoal from the BBQ grill and was throwing up ALOT!! She also peed in her sleep during that time period. She never did it before and hasn't done it since.

Interesting. My charcoal grill overflowed several times in the last couple of months due to the rain. She has free access to charcoal ashes.

Has the dog been fixed. Common problem They have medication to take care of that. My lab takes one pill everyday and another once a week.

actually she seems thirsty a lot and drinks a ton.

I would get her checked by the vet.
You got to rule out a few things, before thinking its just her getting up in years.

Vet will first address it as an bladder infection...being spayed can cause this and the solution for our cocker was Proin. I don't know who it was here that suggested it but it works. She is 25lbs and on a pill 2x a day...bottle lasts about 30 days and is $20. She never leaks anymore.

Good luck Stink!

The dog needs a visit to the vet. Could be anything from a bladder infection to kidney failure.

My parents 90# ridgeback does this. Supposedly my dad was told it is nothing to worry about. Something that happens to some dogs when they get fixed.

This was happening to my dog a while back. Here is a link to the thread. I eventually weened her off of the proin. She hasnt had an accident since. Just make sure it isnt an infection or kidney issue.

I don't believe so. The ridgeback started having this happen when she was only about a year old.

This was my fist thought. My lab does it every now and then. Maybe 2-3 times a year, max. I've seen her do it while sleeping right next to me. It woke her up and she went running thinking she'd get punished. Can't really get mad at her for it.

Plus, I'm partially to blame. It's an easily medicated issue, as everyone has been saying, but I'm not the biggest fan of medicating for a non-serious/constant issue. That's just me, though, and can perfectly understand others that do.
