My six month old puppy is potty trained-- other than a random accident once in a blue moon, it rarely ever happens. She can hold it all night and up to six hours during the day if necessary. Well, she was spayed yesterday and today she has had 4 accidents in the house... Four! It is really unlike her. Doesn't seem to be straining or in discomfort, just lacks the ability to hold it in.

Is this a common thing that happens post spay? I'm concerned about her. Other than this she has a lot of energy and seems back to her old self.

She's probably just still feeling the effects of the anesthetics and not being able to recognize the feeling in her bladder in time. One day post surgery having accidents wouldn't worry me on its own. She has pain to deal with, medicines to deal with.

Spay incontinence is more like a dribble issue usually.

If in doubt, call your vet and check in.
