Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today! This unfortunately can be quite common dogs that have been fixed, females moreso than males... First, even though he is not showing any signs it would be advised to collect a first morning sample and rule out a urinary tract infection. Some dogs will not show any other signs besides leaking For more information on urinary incontinence in dogs:http://www.petplace.com/article/dogs/diseases-conditions-of-dogs/symptoms/urinary-incontinence-in-dogs Once a uti is ruled out there is one medication options to treat this problem in male dogs. Proin which is given once to twice daily. I always take a baseline blood pressure to ensure there is no issue before starting this medication because it can exacerbate hypertension if undiagnosed I hope this information is helpful, hopefully this is a mild urinary tract infection readily treated with antibiotics but there are other possible causes that may require more longterm treatment. Please let me know if you have any additional questions I can assist with in trying to control her urination issues If you have more questions or if I can help in any other way, please do not hesitate to ask!
