dripping urine

Postby elegy » Sat Aug 28, 2004 8:56 am

luce is dripping urine off and on, mostly when she's out playing. she'll sit and when she gets up, she'll squirt maybe a quarter sized spot of urine. i see her dripping when she trots, but i don't notice her leaking when she's sleeping (ie, i didn't see any urine spots on my bed or the white matress pad under my sheets).

this has been going on for awhile, and we ran routine bloodwork (totally normal) and a urinalysis was totally normal. that was back maybe 4 months ago?

does anybody know if there are any kind of supplements or homeopathic type stuff for this kind of thing? i don't want to put her on PPA if i don't have to.

Check out this article http://www.cvm.uiuc.edu/petcolumns/show ... cfm?id=394 and I suggest you check her urinary tract at the vet.

Curious as to why you don't want to use PPA.

mostly because i prefer not to use any drugs unless i have to. and because she's only two, and i worry about possible long-term effects.

after the urinalysis came back normal we just kind of assumed it's spay-related, but now i'm wondering if she could have something else going on? and maybe i should be seeking further answers from either this vet or another?

i don't know.

My guess would have definately been a low level UTI. Hit another vet, I always welcome second opinions.

Ruby has leaked since her spay. I cycle her on and off PPA and have had good results. I also limit her water intake in the evenings to help prevent accidents.
