It would be a good idea to try to rule out neurologic causes for the urine leakage, especially if there are any other signs of neurologic problems, such as weakness in one or both rear legs, improper foot placement or a drooping tail. This can be an indicator that there is a back or disc problem that needs treatment.
In addition, making sure that a urinary tract infection or disorder is not present is also a good idea. These can make urination painful so you will see some leakage because they might hold it. If there are stones present, she may not be able to control it.
It also might be because of a decrease in urine sphincter tone (the form of incontinence associated with decreases in the reproductive hormones) but it is still a good idea to be careful not to miss another cause.
Your first step will be to see the vet as soon as you can to get a diagnosis and to discuss your treatment options.
