How old is she?
Matilda has been house broken for some time, but the last week or so, she's peed everywhere.
All over my bed twice, on the couch, on the balcony, multiple times in her crate, at her trainer's, and when I've caught her peeing, it doesn't seem like she even is able to make it to the door, she just pees wherever she is, like it's coming out against her will.
Naturally, I assumed she had a bladder infection and took her to the vet on Saturday (when she peed on my bed again - it's just so unlike her). They gave us antibiotics to try in the meantime (didn't help at all) and we waited for the results. Results were in today - and guess what? NOT a bladder infection. Not any kind of infection!
I'm so confused. What else could this be? There is no behavioral change other than the peeing, no blood or anything abnormal about the urine, I just don't understand!
We're going to the vet again today, but since you're all such bully experts, what do you think?
How old is she?
Ok, vet suggested sending the sample for a culture anyway, even though there was no sign of infection, just to be sure.
He also said it may be behavioral, so he gave me anti-anxiety stuff to see if that helps. But Tilly really doesn't show any signs of anxiety - EVER!
We're going to wait for the culture and if it shows nothing, go on to blood test and ultrasound....
HHmmm?? No answer, I was waiting to see if she was on steroids. When Vegas did a round of steroids he pee'd while he was walking across the floor and he has been potty trained for years.??
I'm with @Lucy-licious, there goes my theory, LOL Since that's out of the way, the only other thing is behavior, may have to go back to basics.

Hmm...stones maybe? Ask the vet to add a check for crystals to the urine sample. Billy did pee lots when our vet found crystals. His sample was also clear for signs if infection but after all tests for causes if crystals came back negative they found out about a rare infection that causes crystals...4 weeks if super strong antibiotics and he was crystal and accident free .
My guess is an organic problem,i.e. medical. Curious as to what ultrasound shows. Bertha was a bed peer but from day one. We are safe now but it restarted with her recent uti
I'm a good girl, I promise
Oddly enough.. I have yet to use any of the anti-anxiety stuff, and Matilda hasn't peed in the wrong spot all day? I'm just so confused.
It doesn't seem to be behavioral to me though.... She peed all over her own crate several times, which she then has to sleep in (you know, except I clean it)! She never does that. It's not like it's just been my things...
It also started last week - overnight! One day she didn't do it, one day she did, and it's been happening ever since!
