    No, that midnight feeding was only because she skipped dinner and was whining because she was hungry. She has already scoffed her dinner down tonight She has been doing a little better today. Its changed to every 15 minutes to ever 30-40. Still peeing in her sleep though.

    The peeing in her sleep is not normal, so I guess you will have to wait to see what the vet says.

    Yeah, no. She leaks when she is playing too. She doesn't seem to even know she is doing it. I'd say her UTI is back. Or she might have incontinence or kidney problems.

    when my dog was a puppy - she would pee with excitement when she greeted new people or dogs. But I guess that's not the same as springing a leak for no apparent reason.

    Hope the vet has something to sort it. One of the dogs from my child hood, used to leak every time she lay down - because of a car accident to the pelvis. It wasn't fun to live with.

    Mmm could be an ectopic ureter or incompetant sphincter. The former requires surgery the latter is what my dog has and is manageable with daily medication, but she didnt leak when playing only when sleeping but I guess it could also have happened when playing. Probably best not to speculate, just get it checked out.

    I hope it is just an infection.

    Ok, so we've been to the vets. Mini's wee had traces of blood and was very very very diluted. It had a few other things in it was well, but I didn't understand most of that. She is going on an immune booster for 10 days, and 5 day course of antibiotics, plus some herbal stuff. And we have to add a pinch of salt to her food twice a day to help concentrate the urine. He said its unusual to see a UTI in such a young pup. He said if this doesn't clear up the issue, it could be a kidney problem, in which case she will get bloodwork and an ultrasound done. I'll keep everyone updated on how she goes. Fingers crossed the antibiotics fix the problem.

    He also mentioned something about addisons disease as a possibility, but didn't think she had it as she is very coordinated when playing and in 5 days we have to do a test. We take her water away for four hours and get a wee sample on the hour to see if it is concentrating at all. We only do this at the end of the 5 day antibiotics though.

    Yes fingers crossed. I know when my puppy was wetting herself it was not a good feeling. It was nice to resolve it.

    She's had one dose of medicine so far, with added salt. And we've given her a heap of exercise and she is already weeing a tiny bit less. could just be the distraction though. Did your puppy do this early in life, or was she old? My vet said he has very very rarely seen this in a young puppy.

    You might want to let your dog's breeder know what's up in case they have any insight or any other pups are having similar problems. And they might need to know if it ends up being something genetic - to avoid breeding that particular pairing again.
