back to the vet...

Good morning hav lovers!

I have been putting off writing this thread because I kept hoping things would change. Most of you know the uti/crystals issue we had over the holidays.
She had a re check beginning of January and all was clear! The vet adjusted her back and she did fine for about a month.
The past week I have been checking her crate pad every morning and every morning it is wet.
She doesn't drink at.all. so no 'taking the water up'
I have made her crate TINY, where there is barely room for her to lay down. still wet.
I have been taking her out when I get up to go potty (twice a night) STILL wet in the morning.
It's been 4 days in a row of a wet crate.
My husband is OKAY with this and says we can't DO anything about it and to just keep washing the towels... ummmmm, NO.
I have a call into the vet. I am hoping maybe her back is out again causing urinary incontinence? If it was behavioral wouldn't the things I have been doing cause it to stop??
I am so confused and heartbroken over this.
I hope the vet will be able to help us, but I literally have to go behind my husbands back to take her.
Has anyone else ever dealt with something like this??
For those of you that don't know Tillie and I, she is 2 1/2 yrs old and potty trained like a dream, 2 weeks. BAM no accidents, bell training and never had any problems until this past November when she started peeing on the beds! Turns out she had a uti and crystals in her urine. Another infection at Christmastime and she was on 2 antibiotics and restricted in the house (which she still is not allowed in bedrooms except for at bedtime where she goes to her crate.) I am wondering if this is behavioral, physical? if she thinks it's okay to pee in her crate?! Hoping and thinking maybe she just has yet another uti...? prayers appreciated.
Not sure when I'll be able to get her to the vet, I have a call in right now, waiting to here, hoping for today...

Hi. I had the same thing with Charlie. He started forming crystals and began peeing in the house long after he was potty trained. The vet switched his food to Hills Canine CD( urinary health diet) and that was the end of the problem. I hope that helps.

ya, both her vet AND Sabine insist that her food isn't the problem, maybe IF it is crystals again they will consider changing her diet... I homecook for her.

Tammy- have your vet rule out UTI, crystals/stones etc but honestly to me it almost sounds like spay incontinence.

Sigh... yes Katie, me too.... I am just hoping that isn't the case. Is it common to happen so far after the spay? I know she isn't doing it on purpose. Have you ever experienced this with any of your pups??

Vet just called, can't get her in until Tuesday!? I told them to PLEASE call me if they have ANY cancelations.

Yes actually, a few years ago one of my pups got it. And yes, from what I have read it is pretty common for it to happen even years after a spay. I know the pup of mine that has it is on medication and she is doing great.
Is there any other vet in your area that you could take her too? I think it might be worth it to get her in before Tuesday!

there are some other vets, but honestly none that I would trust at all with Tillie.
Her vet is all kinds of awesome. I am praying that there is an opening somehow today...
Also, I am wondering if I should "give" her the rest of her crate back and her bed now that I've ruled out her doing it on purpose...?

Will check this thread, hope things get better.
I'm sure you will have a vet visit earlier as people cancel.
Best to know if you need to change her food.
How is her mood?
