why does a dog pee in the house

Why has my adult
house trained dog
suddenly started peeing in the house? When a previously house trained and well behaved dog suddenly starts
peeing in the house you have to suspect that something has changed. There is a reason
why your dog is doing this. You, the dog owner knows and understands your dog better than anyone
else. It may be up to you to discover what
the underlying cause is. Below I have outlined some of the reasons why your adult dog has
changed it's usual behavior and has begun peeing (and sometimes pooping)
inside the house instead of going outside. Usually the problem of sudden onset peeing in the house falls into
two categories. 1. A medical reason. 2. A Change in behavior brought on by outside influences. Read through the possible causes below and you may be able to gain
some insight into your dog's problem. A medical reason is
often a common
cause for an adult dog to suddenly begin urinating in the house so it is essential to rule out a medical cause first. Many of the
medical conditions that commonly cause inappropriate urination can quickly
become serious for your dog.


To Rule out Medical Problems you need to schedule
an appointment with your Vet. Your veterinarian should perform a thorough physical exam and
talk to you about what is going on. A urine sample from your dog will probably be necessary for
analysis. This sample will help indicate if there is an infection going
on, how well the kidneys are concentrating the urine, and if there are
any crystals. Your veterinarian may recommend any of the following tests depending
on your dog and the urine results: Bloodwork, Xrays or an
ultrasound. Dogs do not punish their owners. Some owners are under the misconception that the dog is peeing in the
house to punish the owner. Dogs do not retaliate or do things out of
spite. Some tips re Punishment of Dogs for peeing
in the house. Never punish your dog for inappropriate
urination. Don't rub your dog's nose in it or shout or even worse hit
your dog. You will only make matters worse. You need to find the reason
why your dog is doing this. Nothing will be gained by punishment.


Much can be gained by understanding your dog
and why this inappropriate behavior is happening. Punishment will only
make insecurities and anxiety worse. Cleaning up Cleaning up existing dog urine is
important. When your dog pees on the carpet it leaves an odor

With a little reminder, most dogs get right back to their good potty habits. You can also help prevent accidents by keeping your dog away from the area they have been going potty in. A baby gate or closed door can easily restrict your dogs access. Read this for more advice. Schedule: Take your dog outside on a set schedule. Your adult dog should be able to hold their urine for 4-8 hours depending on their activity level.


Set a schedule and stick to it every day. Reward: Go outside with your dog each time. Take a tasty food treat. When your dog goes potty in the correct place, praise them and offer a food reward. This will help your dog want to go potty in the right place. Consistency: Your consistency in training is the key to your dogs success. Stick with your training plan and you will see fast results. The more consistent you are, the faster your dog will get back on track. Useful information. The term LUTD encompasses a number of very different conditions, but what they have in common is that they affect the bladder, urethra, and in male dogs, the prostate gland. All of these organs are very sensitive, and so dogs house-soiling because of LUTD usually show signs of discomfort and increased frequency of urination. There is also usually a change in the characteristics of the urine, which may become foul-smelling or bloody. Your dog may spend more time licking his/her genitals in response to the irritation.


Infection- bacteria, viruses, fungi may all infiltrate the bladder and prostate Urinary caliculi (stones)- Yorkies, Lhasa Apso, Miniature Schnauzer, Shih Tzu, Miniature Poodle, Cocker Spaniel, Dalmation, and English Bulldog are predisposed Differentiation of these conditions will require investigation by your veterinarian, but the first step will be to examine a urine sample. If you can obtain a urine sample before visiting the veterinary hospital you can help expedite the diagnosis. Treatment varies depending on the condition; for a bacterial bladder infection a single course of antibiotic may be sufficient, but for urinary stones it is very often necessary to keep your pet on a specific diet for the rest of his/her life. Most of these conditions are very treatable, but can lead to serious complications if not recognised and treated promptly. By paying attention to the type of accident your dog is having in the house as well as being vigilant for other signs of disease, it is usually possible to assist your veterinarian in coming to the correct diagnosis quickly.
