Fecal and Urine Incontinence in a young dog?
First off, I'm sorry guys I keep coming here and it always seems to be for digestive and poop problems lol.
We finally got our 8 month old male on Victor food successfully and his poop problems have been fixed and he also hasn't had an accident in the house the last 3 months until this past week.
So has anyone expierenced both fecal and urinary incontinence simultaneously in a dog this young? He is unaltered so that wouldn't be causing it.. at first we thought he was just regressing on bad habits like going in the house but we've noticed several scenarios that make us believe it's some form of incontinence:
- we have taken him outside and he'll pee but not poop and then 10 - 20 mins later in the house he poops like he all of a sudden cant hold it... Like with no notification to us he literally drops (still firm) poop while walking with no hunching or anything.
- he also does this when we walk him to the park, almost like he's so excited to go the park that he can't hold it, when we get close to the park he'll also walk while pooping not even realizing he's doing it. It literally just plops out of him.
- today after laying down from running around he just laid on his side and a big pee puddle trickled out of him...
Should I be worried??
We've already taken him to the vet several times in the last 6 months since we've gotten him to test for worms, giardia etc. He had worms at 8 weeks but was tested clear at 10. They attributed his earlier poop problems after worms was gone to sensitive stomach which we've fixed. He had peeing problems where he still needed to go out every hour even at 6 months old and sometimes he struggled to pee... All of which has be fixed on our own just guessing with things to do and try, in conjunction with suggestions on this form bc every vet we've gone to just hasn't been helpful at all..
do you think this calls for a vet visit or has anything similar happened to anyone?
I'm starting to feel like i just get my self paranoid over everything now lol
