3 Month old puppy potties in her sleep!

June 28th, 2004, 05:49 PM
Hello. Hope someone out there can help me. I have a 3 month old Yorkshire Terrier. I have noticed a couple of times now when she wakes up from a nap she has urinated in her sleep. I take her out all the time since I am trying to potty train her. Not quite there yet though. Anyhow I have noticed twice she has been wet after sleeping. Anyone been through this before? Could it possibly be a urine infection? She is now on Tresaderm for bacteria infection in her ears. Hope someone can help. Than you in advance!

could it be that she sleeps so hard so does not relieze she has to go? what has your vet said about this?

Haven't taken her there yet. Just happened on Saturday and now the 2nd time today (Monday) that I noticed. I have had her to the vet so many times for other things they might think I am neurotic (spelling?). Think I will have to call tomorrow though. Guess if they are sick of what....they get paid. Thank you!

You need to get her to a vet and have her checked for a urinary tract infection. If not treated, she may become incontinent.

My mom has a yorkie that gets bladder infections easily.
