Default Puppy suddenly dribbling pee on floor!

I have a 7 mos old female GS mix. She weighs about 33 lbs. When we rescued her at 12 weeks, she had a broken pelvic bone. She also was peeing all over the place, but unable to completely empty her bladder. The vet said the trauma from whatever type of accident she had must have caused swelling by the urethra (or wherever in there). He put her on Predisone and after about a week, she was fine and has been peeing fine and basically housebroken. Two days ago I noticed a couple of dribbles of pee where she had been sitting. I really didn't think much of it. Now this evening I notices a few drops on the carpet and later on the kitchen floor. It is not necessary excitement pee, so I'm not sure what it is. She is going outside and peeing normally and today was inside for 4 hours with our 10 yr old mix and nothing was on the floors. Could it be some type of nervous pee at this age. The first time (2 days ago) she was at my office sitting by the door watching people walk by. This evening she was by the living room and went into the kitchen and was barking at my DH and myself wanting to play. Is this normal? I'm sure after all this time all her bladder problems from when we found her at 12 weeks old would be gone. Thanks!

If I am not mistaken, the Prednisone makes them drink more water which may be causing the problems.... That is if she is still on it. It could all clear up when she gets off the Prednisone.

But I am no VET and considered a dumb a** by some one here.

Is she spayed? I had a Doberman that started doing something like this and I was told it was spay incontinence. They gave her a medication (I do not recall what it was) but she took a minimal amount (started with 1/2 pill a day and eventually worked down to 1/4 pill every other day).

She would be laying there sleeping and then jump up all of a sudden and a little pee would dribble out. She seemed as surprised by it as I did.

Bladder infection or prednisone? My dog has had similar symptoms with both.

My first thought is infection.

It sounds like a UTI to me. Get a urine sample first thing in the morning and have it tested.

She stopped taking the predisone right after we got her, so that's not the problem. They spayed her when we found her at 12 weeks because of her injury and other problems, they looked around to see if she had any bladder damage and while opened up, they spayed her. I'm gonna get her to the vet. Thanks!
