Hello, last week I reduced Tru, a 13 week old lab beagle mix. She was spayed and had a hernia surgery on Friday January 8th. Two days after the surgery she started experiencing very frequent urination and urgency. We took her back to the vet who preformed her surgeries and he prescroved. oral amoxicillin twice a day for ten days but he did not even test her ruin after I suggested it. Before her surgery she was doing great and having very few accidents. Now she is going extremely frequently. When she does urinate she will go three times right in a row and then sometimes comes back inside and will go again. It's like what ever she drinks comes right back out? Her urine has no odor, is very clear and comes out in larger amounts instead of little drops. We are familiar with bladder issues, our cat who recently passed away had dealt with chronic cystitis flares. She would not have infections but inflammation of her bladder which would only calm down with steroids, which sadly led to her kidney failure. We actually decided to get a dog this time because we did not want to see another cat go through bladder issues. We have been trying to research this issue in dogs and read that sometimes after a spay Urethral sphincter mechanism incompetence can occurs because hormones levels can change or their bladder can be damaged during the surgery. We are not so much concerned with her accidents in the house we just don't want her to be in pain or even uncomfortable. She is such a good dog we just want her to feel better. Thank you for your help.
