For the past week or so we have really noticed that Dee smells of urine.....especially at night. This started a few days prior to her tooth extraction, so I can't blame this on the anesthesia she had a couple of days ago. I immediately took a sample in for my Vet to check out for any sign of infection, but he said it was clean. The only thing he mentioned was that it wasn't quite as concentrated as it could be (specific gravity test?)....but it still fell in the low normal range. I haven't found any major wet spots, but her bedding did feel a little damp. She's always licking something so it's hard to know if it's urine on her bed or not, but I think I can assume she's leaking judging by the fairly strong odor. I don't think the Vet has done a culture because it would have taken longer for the results to come back, but they did say that they could tell there was no infection with whatever test they did at their clinic.
Needless to say I'm hoping she isn't suddenly having incontinence problems. How likely would that be? She's just 4 and did go through a heat before being spayed......and she was spayed over two and a half years ago. She has never had any problems with incontinence whatsoever up to now.....or any UTI for that matter. In fact quite the opposite as she's always seemed to be able to go hours with peeing.
Anyone have any thoughts on what could be causing this? TIA
