We haven't got to that point yet. The Vet had me change his diet and we started him
Nutri-Vet bladder control chewables about a week ago.
It has almost stopped completely, not a single drip today. I really think it's the bladder control stuff that is working.
Thank you all again so much for your time and advice.
Good luck and health to you all, and all of your pack members.

Some spayed females (loss of estrogen) and neutered males (loss of testosterone) develop weakening of the sphincter muscle causing them to lose bladder control.
Here are a few things that might help.
Homeopathic’s – Are derived from animal, vegetable, or mineral ingredients and works with the body to balance the problem. Specific “remedies” are used for incontinence.
Only Natural Pet “Incontinence”: Newton Homeopathics Bladder Kidney Dog Cat
Active Ingredients: Thyroidinum 12x, Glandula Suprarenalis 6x, Alumina 12x, Calcarea Carbonica 12x, Cantharis 12x, Causticum 12x, Hypothalmus 6x, Gelsemium Sempervirens 12x, Equisitum Hyemale 6x, Pulsatilla 12x, Pituitary 6x, Folliculinum 6x, 30x, Sepia 12x, Sabal serrulata 3x, Thuja Occidentalis 12x There are 2 others with different combinations of homeopathic’s that you can try if this doesn’t work.
Herbals – Mullein Leaf – Helps to tone bladder muscles.
You can purchase a brand like Alvita Mullein Leaf Tea Bags at a health food store, steep in ½ to 1 cup of boiling water until cold. Give 2 tablespoons of the diluted mix after the evening meal and before you let them out for the last time before bedtime . If your dog doesn’t care for it, add 1 or 2 Tablespoons of canned low salt, low fat chicken or beef broth.
Purchase pure loose Mullein Leaf and brew: using 1/2 teaspoon of crushed Mullein Leaf to 1 cup of boiled water, cover and steep for 20 minutes then strain with strainer. Give 2 tablespoons of the diluted mix after the evening meal and before you let them out for the last time before bedtime.
Parsley - Adding 1/2 teaspoon of chopped fresh kale and parsley to the dog's food will help strengthen the kidneys too.
There are other herbals & homeopathic's. PM me if you'd like them.
Hope this helps!

my dog is 6 yrs old. last year he leaked 3 times. i remember twice
he leaked when he was sleeping. i took him to a specialist and
they did all sorts of tests and x-rays. they didn't find anything wrong.
he hasn't leaked since.

He's been housbroke since he was about 10 weeks old.
Like some of you guys have said, It seems like it happens the most when he's asleep.

|vicky2200||My toy poodle had this problem when he was about 1 to 1.5 years old. The vet insisted he didn't have an infection, but to me the urine smelt awful so I have my doubts. Anyway, he eventually outgrew it. Keeping him outside isn't going to help him learn if it is behavioral because a dog needs to make mistakes to learn what is expected.|

|Sarah~||Xena leaks a little bit while she's sleeping, it started after she was spayed. I've just kind of dealt with it because she has no idea she's doing it and I didn't think there was much I could do about it.|

I'm sorry I can't help you.
But we've had the same problem with my husky. He tinkles when he relaxes or is asleep and has gone through a number of tests to see if something is wrong. He's healthy...He began after he was neutered and had an undescended testicle. I usually don't let him on the sofa and luckily we have tile...

I just saw the bladder control ads.
Anyone ever use them?
