My 8 month old lab was neutered a little over 2 weeks ago. First week was great. Starting the second week he started peeing in his crate and around the house not being able to hold it (he’s trained and never had a problem) now realizing that he is producing so much pee and is peeing so frequently after not even drinking that much water (I’m monitoring his water intake) he’s acting fine no fever or anything. We are awaiting back a urinalysis and he has been on antibiotics fir a few days but it’s not improving yet. Anyone ever experience this? My poor baby.

You need to talk to your vet. It sounds like something may not be right with the surgery. You may need a second opinion.
Some male dogs will develop urinary incontinence post neuter due to a drop in testosterone. This hormone drop can interfere with the sphincter muscle that keeps urine in the bladder.

SEE YOUR VET or SEEK A SECOND OPINION>

Hello, I am dealing with the same issue after my female lab mix was spayed. We had a urine test and X-rays done and everything was fine. The vet said give her smaller amounts of water throughout the day and checking her kidneys would be the next step. Is your dogs very clear? I feel so bad that this is happening for both mine and your puppy, it's extra hard because she was fine before the surgery. Your dog is so cute, I hope he gets feeling better. Please, Keep us updated,

Ugh it’s so frustrating isn’t it? I know it’s more common in females than males. The amount he is peeing is the most alarming part snd yes it seems to be diluted pee. He’s not drinking an over abundance of water and It’s still pretty light colored. No one can seem to figure out what’s going on. His urinalysis came back normal we might have to have his kidneys checked again even though they just did blood work before surgery. I will def keep you posted! ☺

It is so frustrating, you just want them to feel better. I am hoping for the best for both our pups. Has your vet mentioned anything about neuter/spay inconstancy? I am reading a lot about that online, some say it can happened immediately after the surgery but others say it takes years. Dose your dog go out in the night a lot? Hopefully we will both get some answers and can get out pups feeling back to normal.

Just an update. All of tru's blood work came back normal. I am really happy about that but I am still at a loss for what's going on. We are going to see how she dose for another few weeks. I just switched her food over to blue buffalo puppy kibble without corn in it, someone mentioned that their dog was bothered by corn, What type of food dies your puppy eat? Also anyone know how much water a day a 13 lb puppy should drink? Thank you!
