Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
I would suspect that your puppy is having what is called "spay incontinence" or estrogen responsive incontinence. This fits with your timeline of surgery and presentation of clinical signs. Estrogen is an important hormone for helping females maintain urinary continence and this is because the hormone has direct effect on the external bladder sphincter that allows females to hold urine in when our bladders are full. When that hormonal influence is taken away (such as when she was spayed) there can be enough of a sudden hormonal imbalance that incontinence can occur. This classically seen as urinary leakage as she walks or urinating when is stands or while laying down. Talk to your vet and they will most like prescribe a hormonal supplement (such as Incurin or Proin) to help your puppy with this problem.
