bladder control problems in dogs

The Top 6 Urinary Diseases in Dogs

1. Urinary tract infection

Upper urinary tract infections in dogs involve the kidneys and ureters, while lower UTIs in dogs impact the bladder and urethra. Common causes can include bacterial infections (particularly, Streptococcus and Escherichia coli), endocrine diseases and injury. Dogs with UTIs will exhibit many of these signs: cloudy or bloody urine, inability to urinate, straining when trying to pee, painful urination, obsessive licking of the genital area, increase in the amount and/or frequency of urination, suddenly house soiling, back pain and vomiting.

2. Kidney infection:

Pyelonephritis is the medical term for an inflamed kidney infection caused by bacteria. A weakened immune system can make your dog more vulnerable to a variety of bacterial infections, including those associated with dental disease. All of these bacterial infections can weaken the kidney’s ability to filter toxins and waste products from the blood. Common symptoms associated with kidney infection include foul breath, vomiting, weight loss, bloody urine, pale gums, lethargy, reduced appetite and change in the amount of urine.

If he's a young dog, he'll probably outgrow it. Otherwise, you might see a vet about medicines and suggestions to help control the problem.

Good luck!

Dog with a possible bladder control problem?

I'm baby sitting my sister's dog and every time someone walks in the room she pees. We have to tie her leash to a chair so she can't get into the family/living rooms where the carpets are. Anyone have any idea what might be wrong with her? Apparently


Either its excitement peeing, or its submission peeing.
Excitement peeing is when the dog is so HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY to see you, it can't hold its urine. Submission peeing is when the dog is scared of other people, animals, whatnot, that when he is


It sounds like submissive peeing - which means the dog is scared of you.
