How Pee Travels Through The Body

Surrounding the bladder are several organs that make up the urinary system, including two kidneys, two ureters, two urethral sphincters, and a urethra. Urine trickles down from the kidney, funneling it down into the two muscular tubes known as the ureters. The ureters are responsible for carrying the urine downward into the bladder.

The detrusor muscle, the wall of tissue in the bladder, relaxes the bladder, allowing it to inflate like a balloon. Therefore, when the bladder gets full, the detrusor contracts, and the internal urethral sphincter automatically and involuntarily opens, leading to the release of urine.

Typically, we should urinate at least four to six times a day, but what happens when we have to force ourselves to cinch it in?

Holding In Your Pee

Once the urine enters the urethra, it stops short at the external urethral sphincter, similar to a tap. When we delay urine, we keep the sphincter closed; we voluntarily open the flood gates when we release it. Stretch receptors inside the layers of the detrusor muscles send signals along our nerves to the sacral region of the spinal cord, triggering a reflex signal to travel back to the bladder. This increases the bladder's pressure, so we know it's filling up, causing the internal urethral sphincter to open simultaneously, known as the micturition reflex.

is it normal for my dog to lose bladder control after surgery?

I just got my dog neutered today and he has no control over his bladder. He has peed twice in the house without even realizing it - he is completely house broken and would not pee at home before the surgery. Is this normal? Should I be worried?


You should be worried if it continues for longer than a day. At this point, he is probably still quite groggy from the anesthetic and is still coming out of it. In addition, he was probably given IV fluids during the surgery, which will make him need


call the vet now. he shouldn't be doing that. maybe the vet did more than neuter him.

Anyone had the surgery for bladder control?

Has anyone had the surgery for bladder control. I can't do exercise especially running because i leak embarassingly. How long does the surgery take to recuperate from?


First of all you need to see your Doctor and he will try a medicine that might help and if not then surgery is the next option. I did have my bladder tied up and it took me about 6 weeks to completely recover. My Doctor told me that there was no guarantee
