Stress Incontinence!

Post by Allison » 09 Jun 2010, 20:16

Max was really easy to house train, although since he doesn't bark, it was just a question of letting him out a lot. However, he is now 7 months old and for the past month or so has been suffering from 'stress incontinence' whenever he is excited or being told off we have a bit of a leak. He doesn't seem to realise he is doing it most of the time. Is this a passing phase or something to worry about?

If there's any change in his wee habits, it might be worth checking with your vet. However, it could just be an excitement-wee! Molly regularly wee'd on visitors' shoes till she was......ooooh, can't quite remember, but probably at least a year old. It wasn't intentional - she was just so excited to see people, and so keen to greet them up close, that the end result was wee'd-on shoes :lol:

She's now nearly 4, and last Feb had a procedure under sedation at the vets - when I picked her up, she wee'd in excitement at seeing me. She was still a bit dopey after her sedation, and would hate to be reminded of her lapse :oops: :lol:

My boy Ben used to wee a bit when a) excited b) as a sign of submission / fear when meeting people he viewed as dominant.
Now one year old and only does it at the vets!
So, fingers crossed Max will grow out of it.

Daisy and Poppy both did the excited wee - Poppy still does it for some very special people :roll: :oops: . I have to explain to them that it is because they are her very very special friends :lol: :lol:

Unless Max has been castrated recently, I agree with the others that this is just excitement. If he has had the op recently I would take him back to the vet for a check up.....

Oh yep,

The happy pee :roll: Barley used to wee on my OH's trousers when he came home from work, he's just turned 1 and hasn't done it in about 3 months. Fingers crossed it's a phase ....
