    Has she been spayed? I have (had, my dad stole her from me) a female who was spayed fairly early, she never had accidents, now at six years old she is leaking in her sleep. Poor girl. Upon investigation, no bladder infection, the veterinarian tells us he believes it to be urinary incontinence which is quite common in spayed females. The options are meds to control the sphincter muscle or hormones. I don't remember which one my father opted for (as Kiera is now officially his dog >:|) or if he even continued to give her the medication (he hates giving the dogs medication or anything unnatural). So, while I can't tell you which is the better treatment option, I can tell you that it could be incontinence from the spay.

    I don't know how bad these accidents are...But Kiera was only getting a tiny little spot on her bed wet so it wasn't a huge deal.

    yes she was spayed i believe around 6months of age. she pees alot when it happens,not just a dribble :( is there a test to check if its incontinence? or is it just diagnosed by ruling out bladder infections etc?? the vet had mentioned something about her having a high amount of "crystals" when he did the last test(he named a few breeds such as dalmations being prone to that issue,not sure what it means and not sure if she is part dalmation as she IS white with black spots). thank you for your response.

    Sounds like incontinence to me....but that could be due to infection. Does she have an infection?

    My 11yo Dane, Abby, is incontinent. Premerine(sp) works wonders with her. 2 pills a week and she hasn't leaked any in 6 months.

    I have had good success controlling my dog's incontinence using Vetri-Science Bladder Strength supplements daily and administering Proin for a 2 week period, followed by 2-4 weeks w/o the Proin. I also make it a point of taking her out to the yard every night before I go to bed - regardless of how tired/sleepy we may be.
    Good luck.
