    Questionuncontrolled dribbling (urination)

    Moses is 16 weeks and full potty trained. He will bark at the door when he has to potty. (faithfully) The last few days, I have noticed sometimes while we are playing, or he can be casually walking across the floor and he is unaware he is dribbling? My other 2 labs never did that, in fact none of my dogs have ever had any sort of dribbling. He does have to go potty about every 30 minutes. Not sure what to think. He is HUGE for his age. 50 lbs at 16 weeks. Makes me wonder if his bladder has yet to catch up to his body size? Now if he is kenneled up, no dribbles. We have been gone for 4 hours and no dribbles in the kennel. Had him fully potty broke in 2 weeks. So, I am curious what would cause this? Thanks in advance for your help )

    I think he needs to see the vet. It sounds like he might have a UTI. Also, at his age I would think he would be able to hold his pee longer than 30 minutes. I would think he could wait about 2 hours by 4 months. It definately needs checked.

    Jackson is 11 weeks and has had no accidents in his cage at all. He was dribbling a lot a few weeks ago whenever he was out of his cage. Like every 15 minutes so I brought a urine sample to the vet and he had a UTI. They put him on a antibiotic and hes all better now

    I agree that he should see the vet to rule out a urinary tract infection.

    No UTI. Vet says it is most likely weak bladder leakage, or just excitement dribble. We have to watch him, and if the amount increases they will do an ultrasound to make sure he doesn't have Ectopic Ureter Defect. If that be the case, then he will have to have surgery to fix it. He doesn't seem to think it is that issue though. (I hope not). I laughed at him today though-- he saw Moses weight and size and made a point to say "you are ONLY 16 weeks? You are going to be a BIG boy", and then he smiled really big. LMBO Good report from the vet though.

    Great news from the vet! Let's hope he's just an excitable boy! Some puppys dribble when excited or scared. If this is the case, he should out grow it. If you aren't seeing wet bedding where he has leaked in his sleep, I'll just bet he doesn't have EUD...

    Good news! If it is excited pee he should grow out of it.

    I am glad nothing was wrong! Maxx sometimes "leaks" when he is over excited, especially when my kids come home. (They don't live at home, my daughter is on her own and my youngest in med school). Hopefully that is all it is.

    No dribbles while sleeping or in his kennel. Only when he is out and about and only a tiny dribble. And he hasn't dribbled at all today *jumps up and down*
