Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question
the most common reason for urinary leaking especially if it's passive such as while sleeping or at rest is urinary incontinence. It is important however to rule out the possibility of a urinary tract infection or other metabolic diseases. Given her age the best case scenario would be getting some blood work done including a urinalysis to make sure her kidney values are normal and she doesn't have an active urinary tract infection. If all of that is normal than there is a medication that can be prescribed to help with urinary incontinence. If it truly is urinary incontinence it is not a painful condition, it is just an age-related change that occurs in spayed female dogs. She's probably just licking the area because she notices that there is urine present not because of pain. I understand your concern about taking her to the vet as many dogs get very stressed. unfortunately there is not anything you can do at home to stop the incontinence but if it is not causing her any distress and the accidents don't bother you then you have option of doing nothing.

Most dogs that have urinary tract infections will show signs of discomfort or frequent urination. They typically will go outside numerous times and act as if they have to urinate but not actually do so. If she's not showing any of these symptoms and she probably does not have a urinary tract infection. I will add though that dogs that are incontinent are more prone to urinary tract infection so please monitor for any of those signs and symptoms.

Don't think the last post was for me. Well she doesn't lick All the time . when she goes out to Pee she pees I would say her water and intake is fairly normal. Hate taking her to the vet because she gets so upset. Could I take a urine sample there?
I was apologizing because the end of the post was just supposed to say sincerely ***** ***** and instead it posted..since you're laid off. The system heard my words wrong. Anyway, if she has a current exam, some veterinarians are ok with a drop off fresh urine sample. However, if she has not had a current exam they cannot prescribe medication. It is really good better drinking is otherwise normal and that she does not lick all the time.
