1yr Cattle Dog mix has trouble holding her bladder sometimes, when active she consumes lots of water & then has accidents every 30min. She seems to lay down and be unaware that she needs to go outside. She also has trouble letting us know when she needs to go outside regularly. She never has accidents overnight in her crate though.

Hello Kendra,

This sounds like a vicious cycle….she is very active, drinks lots of water then probably falls into a deep sleep and doesn’t realise shes doing it.

Has she been spayed? Incontinence can be a problem in some spayed bitches. She may have a weak Sphincter muscle. There are medications from your Vet for incontinence but if her bladder is that full I don’t know if medication is the answer.

I honestly would have a word with your Vet and see what his advice is.
