Hello, you are through to Dr Linda, a UK based vet.
I'm sorry to hear Roxy has this issue.What breed is she?Have you noticed an increase in thirst?
Does she pee more often during the day?
Customer: replied 20 days ago.
She is a mixture of llasa and freeshon and does not appear to be drinking more
Expert:  Dr L Simmon replied 20 days ago.
Thank you.Given her breed and signs, there are a few considerations.We would consider e.g. urinary stones, urinary crystals, sphincter incontinent or a urinary infection.The first step is a vet check and urine analysis.Treatment will depend on what is going on and may include e.g antibiotics and anti inflammatories.
Expert:  Dr L Simmon replied 20 days ago.

This is unlikely to be behavioural or a training problem as she is wetting her bed,  indicating a true incontinence.

I hope this helps and please let me know if you have any further questions.
