Dog ate chocolate?

Puppy leaking urine.

Species: Dog
Breed: lab
Age: Less than 3 mon
My puppy seems to be going pee while he sleeps .. He's 7 weeks old. Is this normal? I've never heard of it before.




Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

This is definitely not normal. I'm concerned that your dog could have something called an ectopic ureter. You can see more information on this here:

Ectopic ureter.

There are other congenital abnormalities that can cause this as well. Sounds like she should have a consult with her vet.

You can also ask Dr. Marie for a second opinion on your pet's condition.
