My dog got a urinalysis no signs of infection but they diagnosed her with spay incontinence does this sound right? She will be 2 years old next month.

that’s the speculation, yes. i’m a fan of delaying spay until the bitch is fully grown, at least, if not later.

disclaimer: not a vet.  however there seems to be a LOT of circumstantial evidence indicating pediatric spays may be the cause of spay incontinence.

when was she spayed?

so this was a pediatric spay. i wouldn’t be surprised if this is, in fact, spay incontinence.

It’s a practice I firmly disagree with, even though I understand the reasons behind it. Frankly I wish people were more responsible with their dogs. It’s easy enough to prevent a dog from getting pregnant or getting out and impregnating a strange dog, but people don’t put that basic effort into dog ownership.

I have a bitch who will be 3 in July. We haven’t spayed her yet. We will either this summer or sometime next year.

i know that for large breed dogs, breeders are encouraging puppy buyers to wait until AT LEAST 18 months of age, especially for dogs. bitches they’re still saying go ahead and spay before the second heat, but this is where the spay incontinence is still an issue.
