Have a 9 month old Lab that has displayed some urinary leakage twice in the last three weeks. After having been let out to urinate she has come back in the house and then walked around spotting the floor with urine. Also noticed that she is not her usual self today, a little slow. I do believe she just finished up her first in-heat cycle last week. is this normal or should I be concerned?
I think the leakage could be a Urinary Tract Infection. I suggest you call your vet and ask.

take her in for a visit to the vet. It could be anything from urinary leakage, UTI, pyometria, or ectopic ureter. She needs to be seen.
Are you sure it is urine? Does it smell?
Thanks for the input. I took a urinary sample in for testing yesterday and am waiting for a call from the vet who has the results of the test.
Most likely a UTI. FYI if this were an ectopic ureter she would have leaked from birth.
