    Defaultpuppy dribbling pee while sleeping... normal?

    I am a bit worried and I am not really sure if this is "normal" puppy behaviour. When my puppy sleeps he dribbles pee a bit, I mean a drop every so often.

    We always try and take him out to pee when we see the dribble but even after he goes sometimes it dribbles a bit.

    I am just concerned, is this normal? Is it just his bladder is not strong enough yet? Is it because "he is still a puppy"?

    HELP!

    I'm no expert but MAYBE he has a UTI? If it were my pup, I'd get him to the vet just in case.

    Does not sound "normal". Could be a Urinary Tract Infection. I would give you Vet a call.

    Probably normal, but I would take him to the vet for a UTI test just to make sure.

    I'd have him checked out. Sometimes Dozer gets pee stuck in his hairs "down there" and they drip off, could it be something like that?

    Moose did that as a puppy -- we'd find little tiny puddles on the couch after he was sleeping. For him, it was most definitely related to UTI's, as he had 2 between 8-12 weeks old. Once the UTIs were gone for good, the sleep dribbles stopped.
