Red face Emma is leaking...again

Emma, who is 7 months old, has been on cephalexin and ketoconazole for an ear infection. After 1 week of this treatment, she developed incontinence. There are little droplets of urine, like a trail, following her. This happens on and off throughout the day. She appears unaware this is happening, and does not seem to be in pain.

At the vet visit, a urinalysis was normal, an ultrasound showed no stones and a rectal exam, all normal. Other than this, she appears healthy and happy. The vet is stumped and so am I.

Thinking back, this happened before. When she was 13 weeks old, she was on antibiotics for a GI infection, and developed the same symptoms. The issue resolved itself after a couple of weeks. At that time, we thought she had regressed on her potty training or was too excited.

This is not just puppy excitement or submissive urination. Throughout the day, she has periods when her bottom is wet, and trailing urine.

I am very worried.

Maybe the meds are causing her to have the incontinence. Did you look up the medication by googling it. I would get her to a vet, or emerg. vet, if yours is closed. Call the E vet first and ask on the phone.

She was spayed a month ago, but her first leaking episode happened prior to spaying.

We discontinued her meds on Thursday evening. Her vet is open. We are in contact by phone. He is consulting a colleague who is a reproductive specialist. I am waiting to hear.

The vet. said there are several possibilities. However, Emma's symptoms don't quite fit any of the common causes of incontinence. Ectopic ureters is one condition he mentioned.

I am sorry for what you are experiencing with little Emma. I have no advice, just wanted to let you know I follow the thread about Emma.

Poor girl! I hope they figure it out soon! I hope it's just a side effect of the antibiotics.

Emma had a significantly drier day yesterday. I hope it just resolves on its own. I have been reading about the causes of incontinence in young dogs...None of these are easy to diagnose or treat...sigh

Thank God I have tile and hardwood floors throughout the house. Cleaning up after her is easy.
