Canine urinary incontinence is a term that refers to the inability of the bladder to hold urine. For normal storage of urine, the bladder wall relaxes to allow filling and the urethral sphincter closes tightly to prevent urine from leaking out. Urinary incontinence may occur when the urethral sphincter loses the ability to tighten, causing urine to leak out.
Urinary incontinence can occur in male and female dogs of any age or breed but is most common in spayed females. Obesity has also been associated with the problem.
The leaking associated with urinary incontinence can be distressing to both you and your pet: unpleasant odors, dermatitis, urine scalding, infection around the animal’s urethra or vulva and other health problems can also develop.
This condition requires treatment not punishment.
