We recently ( 4 weeks ago ) had our 8 month old puppy neutered. It seems like ever since then, he has had an increase in urination accidents. Prior to this, he would still have an occassional full fledge accident. But now he almost daily is having little dribbling accidents when we go to take him out; like he just can't hold it. Any ideas why? Is there some physiological change after the neutering that might be causing this. I'm taking him Friday to be boarded at the vet and I can ask them to check him out in case there is a bladder infection or something but he really doesn't seem sick...Any thoughts? TIA

Boy dogs like to mark. They will hold in their urine as long as they can until it overfloweth so they can mark, mark, mark when you finally take them for a long walk.

Read through MAK802 thread: Is this common after neutering?

He could possibly have a UTI as well.

I would have his urine tested for an infection. Most vets don't need to see the dog, only charge for testing the urine and of course the meds-if needed. Try cutting the top of a gallon milk jug and use that to capture the urine, then transfer into something more appropriate to transport to vet, if you live close to your vet, stop in and I'm sure they'll give you a cup for it. Good Luck!!!
