Mystery Peeing Issue
Hello All -
My one year old fixed male dobey pup has been having an odd issue with peeing lately, and I was hoping to see if anyone had any experience with this, or had any clue what it is. Two vets as of now are stumped, and I want to do more research before I commit to some expensive diagnostic testing to see if he has any structural issues.
Anyway, about once a week, usually when he wakes up, my dog has problems peeing. He'll get in position and will only get some drops of pee out. Then he'll walk around, and each time he gets in position, the stream gets better. It takes him a few minutes and a few tries, but he eventually gets everything out. He doesn't show any signs of pain. A few hours later, it's like he never had the issue. Then he'll be totally fine and will have a strong stream for days.
A urine sample was sent to a lab and UTI and bladder infections, along with crystals, have been ruled out.
Other things that may be associated that I've noticed... His water intake has gone down, and he's peed inside a few times. It doesn't seem like an incontinence issue at all. He's never peed in his sleep and he always gets in the proper peeing position.
Does anyone have any clue what this could be? Thanks for the help!
