Good morning. I'm Jeanne , a uk based vet. Jess is beautiful! Is Jess sterilised? when did she start wetting the bed?
Thank you for the additional information. The reason I asked wether she was sterilised is because it is common for sterilised female dogs to become incontinent due to hormonal changes. As she is already 5 years old, I would advise against breeding her as she will have a increased risk of developing complications. She is also at an increased risk of developing a uterine infection and my recommendation would be to sterilise her as soon as possible. When did she have her last season?
With regards ***** ***** her bed, it is important to establish wether is is a medical or behavioural problem. It would be a good idea to start with a urine sample that your vet can evaluate to look for signs of crystals, glucose, bacteria and abnormal cells . Your vet will be able to give you a sterile container to collect the sample with , it is important to get it back to your vet within 12 hours of her producing it in order for the results to be reliable. Does this sound reasonable ?
