Losing my mind

Hello people. I am literally losing my mind. Sky is 5 months old and was doing pretty good with potty training. We are training her to go outside and she is being crate trained. Now I am home all day so I take her out about every hour or so. She now pees outside like she is supposed to and when I bring her inside a few minutes later she pees again What is going on? She has had quite a few accidents lately.

On another note, she also has been having loose stools for the past few days and passes very stinky gas. The only thing besides her puppy food that she eats are small pieces of cheese and ham as reward treats. HELP ME

I would recommend a vet checkup.

I called the vet, they said to give her rice and chicken for a couple of days to see if it gets better. Any suggestions on the potty training issues?

a vet checkup is needed to rule any other issues out. Whenever there is a sudden change in behavior/housekeeping it's best to check it out. You 'll have to crate her when she is not under supervision. continue to reward her for outside eliminating .

Possible UTI. Probably needs a vet check. Our Leo couldn't handle cheese of any kind. Even a very small bit caused runny stool. Also be patient outside. Sometimes they need to pee more than once to empty their bladders. Might need to restrict freedom when you come back inside.

Have the vet examine her... I agree, it sounds like she may have something that is causing the accidents. If so she will need medication. Until she's seen, I would for sure, eliminate the ham and cheese as well as temporarily all dog food, and just give her boiled chicken. Make sure there is plenty of fresh water. I hope she's not in a crate all day. IMHO, puppies need supervised freedom in a controlled situation so they learn the rules and boundaries of the house. Hope she is better soon!

Panda had two UTI's when she was younger, and Pixel had one when she was a puppy. In each case, they were peeing small amounts all over the place. With Panda, even after her UTI's were treated, we had to go back to almost ground zero with potty training, though not for as long. I would echo the others in getting her checked out by a vet... And try to bring a urine sample with you. I found a soup ladle made it easy to catch as they squatted.

Chloe was the same way with the UTI at a younger age around 5 months also. She had to get back to back treatments because she continued after the first round of antibiotics.

Our first Havanese loved cheese. It was her favorite treat until we discovered two Struvite crystals the size of Macadamia nuts that had to be surgically removed. Her system could not properly digest calcium. She also had more than her share of UTI infections which were the only cause of urine inside our home. She NEVER peed inside when she was healthy. Mention the cheese and ham treats to your vet. I'm not sure about the ham. I was told that pork is not so good for dogs. Processed deli ham will have lots of salt and preservatives as well.

Fresh, lean pork is a fine protein source for dogs. Ham is always too high in sodium and often too high in fat. I use lean, freshly cooked pork loin, cubed, for training treats often. You can also buy commercial dog foods with pork as the main (or only) protein source. It's a fine choice as long as it is a lean cut... And they produce pigs with more lean meat these days because it's better for people too.
