PostSubject: My 6 month old puppy had an accident after over a month and a half   Wed May 04, 2011 8:37 pm

My 6 month old has been clean for a month and a half. She got spayed almost a month ago. Today she had an accident and she had just gone outside to pee an hour earlier so I wasn't expecting her to need to go. I know they say sometimes it has to do with spaying but it has been okay until now. I cleaned it well-ceramic floor -with Nature's Miracle. Should I be worried? I thought I was through with this. She had a UTI in the past and since then I've been giving her ground up cranberry pills in her food so she wouldn't get it again. Should I go back to putting her in the crate more often since I am now leaving her out unless we go out and also overnight.

I dont think you need to panic yet. Accidents happen. Maybe you can just need to take her out a few extra times a day for awhile. If it continues to happen over the next few days Id have her checked for the UTI again. More so if she is cleaning herself after "going".

FYI, My vet told me that after spaying, some females have issues with leakage. Patchs has a little when she gets real excited.

Are you sure she peed an hour earlier?
Puppies get distracted by so many things....moths in the grass, airplanes flying...lol
maybe she forgot what she was doing. still she should have let you know when she needed out. How does she communicate that to you?
I have a bell on my door. Rotties would eventually tear up a door, I'd suppose, so I didn't want them scratching at it.

You are both right. Sometimes when I take her out to pee, I think she goes through the motions to please me because she know what I am expecting. She may not have peed. She has been accident-free since then and I have been taking her out more often. Thanks for your help.

Glad to hear that its back to normal. Just keep an eye on her to make sure the ground under her is wet ... and then give her LOTS of praise when it is!!! Wink

I too was thinking something along the lines that perhaps she didn't really finish doing her business. Hope you don't have any future problems!

A great way to prevent UTI is to drink a lot of water. This will keep the urethra clean from the virus that causes UTI.
