I posted on here a little while ago that I was pleased that my dog has finally started to pee outdoors when she used to only go on her pads.
Well she was spayed 2.5 weeks ago. Since her spay I have noticed some instances of her having accidents. They don't happen all day or everyday but yesterday there was a small wet spot on my bed...Lucy would NEVER pee on the bed. Today I noticed a small wet spot on the carpet. I can think of just a handful times I've noticed it before in the last couple weeks. Is this a temporary side effect of a recent spay or is this possibly the condition known as spay incontinence? I knew this was a possibility spaying her before her first heat but I just didn't want to deal with the mess of the heat cycle and I felt like I would rather risk her having this condition. Well now, I'm a little bummed and thinking that maybe her peeing outside is not just a step in her maturity but that she may be having some incontinence. In addition to this we are dealing with a parasite she picked up at some point recently (coccidia). It's just been a mess with her since her spay...and this new possible condition doesn't seem to help.
