Incontinence in giant schnauzers

by Tom Lewis

Has anyone run across incontinence in intact female giant schnauzer puppies? We have an eight-month-old female that is constantly leaking and will often be found sleeping in a pool of urine on the floor. She’s been treated for a urinary track infection without any relief. The next step would be to get a ultrasound to check for ectopic ureter

Hi Tom,
Apologies for the delay in replying.
I have only come across it in female Golden Retrievers and it turned out to be a genetic issue with the bloodline.
Other than that, you are doing all the right things. One thing I would do is contact the breeder and ask if she has heard of this (of course, she may say no, but if she is reputable, you should get an honest answer).
Good luck with your young girl. hopefully it is something the vet can sort.
kind regards,
Linda
