    Yes as soon as I bought her home at about 10 weeks old. A friend of mine who is a specialist surgeon has done several surgeries for ectopic ureters in puppies so these problems can happen.

    My pup had an incompetant sphincter where the ring of muscle controlling the flow of urine out of the bladder doesnt do its job as well as it should. Fortunately the same medication that helps older bitches when they get spey incontinence manages the problem and so far surgery hasnt been required. She is now 5 yo. I did let her have her first heat as this can help in 50% of cases but soon after she got pyometra and had to have an emergency spey. Without the medication she is incontinent when she sleeps.

    I would tell your breeder particularly if it is a congenital problem.

    I sent her a message, but haven't had a reply yet. But I'll message her with updates. We've had two accidents this morning. None at all last night apart from the peeing in her sleep. I think the salt is helping a lot. And I can't believe it, but she actually had more energy this morning. I didn't think it was possible for her to have more energy.

    more energy... just wait till she is the doggy equivalent of a teenager. And unlike the human variety - the doggy variety is much more energetic and still gives you the finger or wants you to save them from the monsters - both.

    Its so hard to tell if these antibiotics, salt and immune booster is helping Mini. She still seems to be weeing a lot. Her wees seem a bit smaller though. So I am hoping that means the dilution problem is getting better. So hard to tell though! She is still wetting herself in her sleep. Thinking at this stage that it may be kidney issues. My poor baby.

    Oh that's so hard for you AllieFay

    Have you let the vet know she's not getting better - they might want to start the other checks (blood tests?) sooner rather than later. Still, it's early days. As long as she still seems otherwise healthy and enthusiastic about life.

    Can you give her a spoonful of yogurt to go with the antibiotics? - helps keep the gut working properly.

    He said to do the course for 5 days, which means she still has another few days to go. So I'll keep her going on them. I can get some yoghurt for her. She seems very very healthy. She has a nice soft coat, bright eyes, wet nose. Heaps of energy. And her bowel movements are perfect. Just lots of peeing and its way to diluted still. So hard. Going to do everything we can to fix her up though.

    It seems odd to have put her on antibiotics with out first taking a sample of urine and culturing it to see if she actually has an infection. I guess they decided to see if it was based on the tiny traces of blood in her urine.

    When my baby pup was peeing all the time in her sleep, because I knew that UTI is not that common in pups and she seemed very energetic and healthy, I just put her straight onto medication that I gave an older dog for incontinence. It worked and the problem was solved. If it hadnt worked immediately, I would have then followed it up, but it did and she has been on the medication ever since

    Good luck it is an unfortunate situation as I well know, hopefully they can solve it quickly.
