When should you see a vet about your dog’s inappropriate urination?

It’s best to speak to your veterinarian early if you notice signs of inappropriate urination, especially if it has never happened before. Aside from puppies that need house training, involuntary urination or incontinence is usually a sign of an underlying issue, especially if other symptoms are observed. 

In addition, if you notice discomfort when your dog urinates, frequent urination, increased thirst levels or straining when urinating, it’s likely a more serious issue and may require urgent medical attention. Note that total blockage of urine flow is a medical emergency and requires immediate medical attention.

Inappropriate urination in dogs is not fun for either the dog or the human that cleans up the mess. However, oftentimes something can be done and we should not leave the issue untreated. Depending on the cause, inappropriate urination can either be treated or managed effectively with the help of your veterinarian.
