Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I have been in the dog field for 25 years. I am a Therapy Dog & AKC Evaluator/trainer/ as well as an assistance/service dog trainer, specializing in behavior. It will be my pleasure to help you today.

Has the dog been checked for a UTI, Crytals, or stones?

Does this only happen when you leave the dog alone?

Has anything changed in the home such as a new pet or a new person?

Anything change in the neighborhood such as construction?

Does the dog ever become destructive when you leave?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
The issue has only started in the past two days, we have two dogs.
Both from same litter and we treated the male for urine crystals with cran tri c but they didn't like the taste, so we have been using Vertiscience uti bite size chews they like these and get them.daily
Expert:  Sally G. replied 11 months ago.

So was the female tested also or are you just giving Vertiscience chews without testing?

Is there ever a puddle when she gets up from resting or does this only happen when you are away?

It seems as if you have gone offline. If this is a bladder infection causing the problem then what you are giving is not going to take care of the problem. You will need antibiotics for an infection so I would drop off a urine sample for testing to be sure, especially since it just started to happen. Another thing to look at would be incontinence as this can be a problem with females. There is medication to help that as well.

What I would do until you have her tested is to crate her or gate her in a room with easy clean up to save yourself the trouble. If it is medical she cannot help it.
