I thought I would post this as maybe someone else has gone through the same with their dog. Misha is a Jack Russell as many of you know. She has some issues. Urinating indoors when excited, afraid, or when she drinks too much water is one of them.\n\nSince the end of November, she has developed a new problem: Peeing on my lap. Not a lot of pee, just a drop or two. It happens once every couple of days, but it happens enough that I have noticed it. Tonight I actually felt her muscles contract before it happened, so it wasn't just wetness on the outside. She has peed on someone's lap before but usually it's when she is very excited they came over or afraid when my brother has stopped by (she is scared of him for some reason).\n\nThis new problem started when my Mom had surgery in November. She was on limited activity for 10 days. But, that has been over for about 3 weeks. Though she is still fatigued. (I don't know if Misha can pick up on that.)\n\nI've spoken to the veterinarian. She listed some health issues that could be at play: a UTI, female spayed dog hormone issues, kidney trouble, etc. However, she isn't showing any signs of a health problem. She is eating and drinking normally. Her energy level is fine. She goes to the bathroom normally. There is no pain when I touch her and she isn't showing difficulty when she urinates. She is not losing her bladder at night or during naps (sign of the hormone issue). We had her anal glands checked (she has had ruptures in the past) to make sure it wasn't that. Her glands were fine.\n\nWe are giving it until after Christmas unless other symptoms develop. It could be a health issue, but I am leaning towards behavioral since after my Mom's surgery we began pulling out the holiday stuff, got the Christmas tree, and disrupted the house. I am thinking that all this change and excitement is maybe a bit too much for her at once. Also, it seems she only dribbles on me, no one else. I'm the Mom, the boss. I don't know if that has something to do with it. She has only peed once on my Mom and that was weeks ago. My Mom probably has her on her lap more than I do.\n\nI was curious if anyone has ever had the same thing happen with their dog. And, if so, was it due to a medical problem, stress, or what? I'm just trying to get some ideas as to what might be causing it. As I said, she has had smaller urination problems due to stress in the past, so it would not be out of the question. She is only 4 years old, so it's not an age issue.\n\nThanks for any ideas on this.
