Drinking excesive and peeing

Hi, I just got a 8month female dobie pup. The prior owners said she was house broken. omg lie
she pee'ed in bedding and crate. I have had her for about 3 weeks now. I take her out alot and she goes every time. then she comes in and drinks like its her last drink. yes I had the vet check her urnine it all looked good. we decided to give is a month to see if it gets better because we were hoping that the prior owners left he in crate to much.
well now 3 weeks later she still drinks like it is her last time to get water. she is better at night I take her out every 2 hours and take water away about 7 pm and her last trip out is about midnight.
yesterday it was nice so she was outside with us all day playing. she is very active. well I made sure she went before she came in that night and took her out again after dinner. then she laid down to nap well while she was sleeping in her bed she pee'ed it and she didnt know it. (this has happend before when we tired her out)
She has darnk almost a 5 qt pail of water in morning or other times she might be like that in evening. I checked treats to make sure then not full of sodium or china treats. her food is puppy Eukenuba.
I am really worried about her drinking and bladder control.

Is she spayed? If so, when was she spayed? I found the information below on the Internet, and I'm wondering if it's possible that it's spay incontinence. If that's not it, then I would suggest that the vet run blood work to make sure everything is normal, at least that's what I'd ask my vet to do. Good luck, and keep us posted!

Urinates in Her Sleep

Your dog wakes up from sleeping and the bed is wet, or the side of her body – often hip or thigh - is wet. The problem is often worse after hard exercise or deep sleep.

Cause

This can be caused by having too little of the chemical that signals the body to hold the urine in. This can happen at any age but, if this is the problem, classically it is an older, female, spayed dog. This problem can also be caused by tick-borne diseases, so if this suddenly starts happening, please head right for your vet.

Solution
Get medication from your veterinarian. In many cases, medication works quickly and completely.
Since your dog is urinating in her sleep, she will give you no signs (and is not aware herself) that she needs to go out.
No schedule changes are necessary, though an extra walk or two might not hurt.
Getting absorbent bedding with a waterproof backing that is all easy to wash can be a big help.
I also found a few references that said some dogs improve when grain is removed from their diet. At 8 months old, she can be transtioned to adult food; perhaps that would help too. You can find much better dog food for the price; remember when calculating the price of a dog food, you'll want to consider the amount that needs to be fed.

excessive drinking and peeing

yes she was spayed she was born in march and spayed 9-6-12. I asked the vet if the sapying gould of messed her up and she said no.
the food she is eating is what the owners were feeding so I am finishing it off. she like it. I asked vet bout the food with all the vietmans in it if that oculd cause it. answer no. this is my vet now not the one that spayed her and shots. when I went to vet thats what I thought we were going to do was blood . but she did urine and it was good. I guess if there are high levels then they do blood. I had put a call into the vet today about the bed wetting.

Did she have this issue before the spay? I ask because releasing urine in their sleep is one of the symptoms of spay incontinence IF the dog started doing that after the spay. I wasn't able to find where this could be diagnosed with a urine test; but then clearly, I'm no vet. I've not had a dog with this, but I know that other members of the board have; they may have better advice.

Symptoms of Spay Incontinence in Dogs

After spaying, your dog will urinate normally, but you may also notice that she eliminates small amounts of urine outside the regular urination schedule. The dog may even release urine when sleeping or resting. This is due to the fact that the dog cannot control her uterine sphincter muscles, as these can weaker following a spaying procedure. The deficiency in muscle control is also due to the lack of sufficient sexual hormones in the system.

If it were me, I'd have a general blood chemistry panel done to check renal values as well as the urine that you've already had done. If you can completely rule out a medical issue for the PU/PD (polyuria/polydipsia), then you can concentrate more on if this is just a weird water quirk she has, or possibly an incontinence problem.

I don't know if this is pertinent to your situation, but last year my male Bichon puppy did the same thing. He'd drink and pee, play, and drink and drink and pee and pee then play and drink, drink and drink! I had him tested for UTI, nothing. It was just a puppy thing and he finally outgrew it around a year of age. Now my Dobie girl puppy does the same thing! I just put down small amounts of water throughout the day. If I put out a gallon, she'd drink it! She doesn't wet her cage, but she does excitement pee when I'm opening her cage. It's gotten a little better lately, and vet says it will improve with age. What has your vet said what the possible causes are? Is it possible she drinks too much, and sleeps so soundly that she just can't hold it?

I would not know if she had this problem prior to being spayed because the people said she was house broken which she was not. All the thrist where she wants to drink comes at different times. I have a call into the vet and I think blood test is next.
