I have a 5 month old Goldendoodle puppy. Recently, I've been taking her out to pee and walk around the yard around every 2 hours. Today, she peed while lying down and her head has been shaking from side to side. She has always been a super playful pup and loves to walk around a lot, but to say she's been acting lethargic would be an understatement.
If anyone has any input or any idea on whether maybe a trip to the vet is warranted please let me know! I've had her for 3 months and she's been the best potty-training wise and personality wise as well! It's very unlike her.
My family has had many dogs over the years and the things that always made us head to the vet was:
A complete change from energetic to lethargic.
A young pup peeing while laying down (standing up - okay but not laying down).
Shaking their heads for no reason.
Bleeding of any kind.
I think you should call and make an emergency appointment with her vet. Be sure they understand that none of these actions are in the norm for her.

My dog is laying down and peeing everywhere. He is a very large dog and has never done this before.
This can be caused by a urinary infection. Some dog gets them from the food they eat. I had one dog that had a urinary infection from eating cooked ground beef. I was told to cook the ground beef to feed to the dog and when I did this, the dog had crystals in his urine.
I would be safe and take the dog to the vet to make sure he doesn't have some sort of tumor, crystals or infection in his urinary track system. .
My dog is 6 years old, part Collie and German Shepherd. She goes outside to pee, comes back in and lays down on the floor and when she get up the floor is wet. She is drinking a lot of water.
Two possible reasons: one is a urinary tract infection. I had a female that would go on the bed. I took a urine sample and had the vets test it. I was correct.
Please take this beautiful girl to your Veterinarian she needs professional help. This is not something you can cure with "home remedies" most Vets have 'home visits". Good luck.
As mentioned, an urinary tract infection is a possibility. Another is the dog may be diabetic; thus, the increased thirst. See a vet.
I have an 8 month old Pit Bull. Usually we take him out once in the morning and once in the evening and he does his deeds outside. It is not uncommon for him however to pee on the floor in the apartment, but he doesn't do that while we're at home.
However what troubles me is that quite often lately he starts to pee out of nowhere on the sofa while walking, or he lays down/sits and pees and he looks like he understands that he shouldn't be doing that. I haven't brought him to the vet yet, any ideas why he may be doing that?
I would take him to the vet. He may have a UTI or other physical issue.
My dog is a mixed breed, female and medium size. She is 3 years old and was fixed when she was a pup. She is up to date on all of her shots. Less than 2 days ago I brought her to our vet to have a mole removed from just behind her left shoulder, not because it bothered her but because it has been growing and I didn't want it developing into something much worse.
I don't know if that is a contributing factor to my question, but I thought it should be included. The mole was removed Thursday late afternoon. Saturday morning I was vacuuming and she moved and I noticed a large wet puddle. I got a paper towel and mopped it up and smelled it and just thought she got wet and it puddled. Then we went up stairs and I found a wet spot on the carpet where she was sitting while I was making my bed and then another one where she was sitting and another one where she likes to lie down.
I have noticed that she has been peeing on things when we go outside, but she never had an issue inside. I am going to to keep and eye on her closely. I was wondering if the doctor used a local when he snipped her mole off or not and that could be it. I'm confused. This is all new for her. She has not been over drinking and she has been been eating so I don't know. If it continues I will take her to the vet Tuesday since it is Labor day weekend or maybe to the priority 24 hour vet's if I think it that much of an emergency.
My dog is 9 years old and has started wetting when she is lying down comfortably/sleeping. I am unsure if it's pee or what, it is clear. She has never done this before.
We got my puppy from, I guess you could say a backyard breeder and/or puppy mill. We didn't know at first until we had already gotten her and from the pictures they sent us.
She lays down just to rest or chew on a bone and then she will just start peeing.Or she will sit and just start peeing. She doesn't pee like a normal puppy would pee. Does anyone know what's wrong? She is the one with ticking (spots).
I would take her to the vet and make sure she is physically fit and has no urinary tract infections.
How do I get my 6 month old Pit mix puppy to stop laying down and peeing on herself. She only does it if there's something under her in the house. She will not sniff around to go pee.She just lays there and pees, but she will get up to go poop. How do I get her to get up to go pee outside and stay off a pillow or towel?
Your puppy seems to be engaging in bed wetting. This is not a housebreaking problem, but rather a medical problem. Your dog seems to be showing signs of sleep incontinence.
Your puppy is very young to be having this problem so it definitely could be a health problem - even something needing some type of surgery so be sure to take her to the vet as soon as possible.
If she has already had a visit to the vet you may be able to call them and they would tell you if they need to see her or if they could give you a prescription for her.
Since she is going out to poop then it stands to reason that this is something beyond her control.
Keep her on washable/changeable towels until she sees her vet.
Puppies do not like to mess where they sleep or eat. There seems to be a bladder problem here. I would take her to the vet.
Healthy puppies don't pee on themselves. I'd go to a vet straight away :(
I'm having an issue with my dog. He's a 9yr old Border Collie who had started to walk and lay down and wee. He has done it 4 - 5 times now in the past few days. Is there something I can do to prevent this from happening?
I have a Blue Staffordshire, she is nearly 5 months old. About 3 days ago she started peeing where she sleeps, twice in bed with us and once on her bed, and few times on the sofa. She is still in potty training, but never peed where she slept. Since day 1 she was jumping out of bed in the night and peed on the carpet, but never in bed until recently. She is on the same food recommend by the vet since she was 8 weeks old.
I don't know what's wrong with her. Any ideas? She goes out with me every 30 minutes to pee and poo and when I catch her peeing in the house I just say "no" and take her out straight away. She has stopped pooping in the house for about 1 month, but I feel disappointed with recently events.
My dog is 13 years old. She has been peeing where she lays down and not knowing she is going. I don't know what this means.
My dog is a year old Lab and for the past couple of mornings has been laying down and peeing on himself before I can let him out. He doesn't respond to his name when he is doing it, but knows he has done wrong.
This could be a health issue and you need to see the vet. He could have a bladder problem that needs medical attention. I would make an appointment immediately and get him to the vet. This sounds serious.
It could be a bladder infection and he has no control over it. He is still quite young maybe it will go away as he gets older.
I have a 7 year old Lab/Great Dane/Heeler, and I keep noticing that she keeps peeing while she is either sleeping or just lying down. She is a very well trained dog. She did have a UTI earlier this year, and we got the medicine for her. So we don't know what is going on.I mean when we let her out she pees a lot and then like 30 minutes later she can be laying on the floor and when she gets up, there is a huge puddle. I was reading some posts and some say diabetes, but I know she is healthy.
Please take your poor suffering dog to her vet now as she has a problem that needs immediate medical help. Her urine retention problem can result from diabetes as well as many other conditions. Delaying medical treatment now will only make the problem worse and cost more.
