Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!
This unfortunately can be quite common in senior dogs
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, blood or crystals in the urine. Some dogs will not show any other signs besides leaking
For more information on urinary incontinence in dogs:
Once a uti is ruled out there is a medication option to treat this problem
- 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
This medication can be very effective for treating leakage issues by strengthening the urinary bladder sphincter so that when relaxed dogs do not urinate
