    DefaultUrinating after being spayed

    I just had my 4year old female, CoaCoa, spayed two days ago and since then she has been urinating big time all over the house. Has anyone had this problem with their dog? She has always been very good about letting us know when she needs to go so maybe I'm thinking this is just a temporary thing? Any suggestions? ???

    I would have her checked for a UTI from the stress from the spay.

    Was she given fluids during the surgery? Did they mention any difficulty with her surgery at all? Sometimes, the surgeon will have to do a lot of tissue "manipulation" when spaying- especially an adult female (they tend to store a lot of fat inside their abdomen, and have pretty well-developed vasculature to their reproductive organs)...as things heal up and as they recover, the increased frequency or "need" to urinate starts to normalize. Just some thoughts...

    When deciding when to have HK spayed, I did a fair amount of research. Check with your vet. Incontinence is one of the potential side effects. There are drugs to help control it. See your vet, because there are a lot of potential causes for leaking.

    I agree to talk to your vet. My first two theroy's would be UTI or Incontinence but only they can tell you. I hope you get it figured out.

    When I had Libby spayed, she went in the house several times & I found out that she had a UTI. She hasn't gone in the house or leaked since clearing it up.

    I started having the same problem with Mya. See your vet about it. She did get the side affect of incontinence.

    Roshto- any updates?

    2 days post-surgery is pretty early (since they still have those hormones circulating in their system so soon after a spay) for a "diagnosis" of hormone-dependent causes of incontinence, which is what it sounds like most here are talking about...
