Dogs Started Peeing in the House

I have a 3 year old lab and and 1 year old Catahoula. Both are fully housebroken and have been for quite some time. Every day when I get home from work I immediately let them both out to use the bathroom and then run around and play together a while. When I was training them, I would take them out on a leash and make them pee and poop before I would let them off to play so they know the order of how things need to work.

Yesterday, about 30 minutes after I let them back in my Lab starting peeing on the floor. I stopped him and made him go outside to finish. He came back in and 30 minutes later did it again.

Tonight my husband and I were on one side of the house and both of our dogs were in the dining room laying on their beds. My husband walks into the room and again my Lab was peeing all over the floor. We get that cleaned and our Catahoula follows us to the bedroom jumps on the bed and pees all over it. It's large amounts of pee. They haven't been drinking more water than usual and I let them out to go out the same number of times as usual. What could be wrong?

Well of course you are going to have to see your Vet. to really know. Two things that came to my mind are diabetes although you didnt mention the age of your dogs. And with diabetes they would be drinking a lot more too. That would make bladder infection a possibility, but that would be odd to see in both dogs at once, though not impossible.

Another possibility is something outside has changed and is intimidating the dogs and taking their mind off their business. This may make them both anxious and feel the need to mark their territory (your bed). One more possibility is that they got into something outside (or a new food) that is a bladder irritant. In any case you need to start with the Vet. Good luck.

I'm not sure if you had both of your dogs spayed/neutered. If not, the lab is "marking" it's territory. Even if it's the younger dog that is in heat, the lab will mark. This time of the year, people open their windows to clear out the dead air space. If this is happening to you, you'll know how to take care of it. It can not be over looked that the lab has a bladder/kidney problem. Sometimes, if you have a good relationship with your vet, you can bring in a urine sample instead of having to pay for an office call. Ask the receptionist before bringing the sample over.

My female greyhound age 12 started peeing on the dog beds in my house. Later I found out she had a cancer tumor growing in her abdomen.

The poor thing was trying to let me know how she felt. Take the dog to the vet for a professional opinion.

Our 10 week old Lab was diagnosed with diabetes incipitous. We could not find a vet to figure out what was wrong until I played Dr. Webmd. I mentioned it the vet and he said no way he was to young, the first test came back positive as did the second. He is now a 3 1/2 and the sweetest boy ever boy but requires life saving medication twice daily. We rescued him and believe he was inbred as hes had a multitude of other medical issues as well.
