|Tatum has recently developed a problem where she pees in her sleep (usually a couple times a week). It's not ever just a little, she goes completely. I can't scold her for it because she has no idea that she's doing it.
She will be 4 years old next month (so I know it isn't old age) , and was spayed at 6 months old.
I have been trying to do research to find out why this is happening but there seem to be so many possibilities. I do not think she has a urinary tract infection because I have another dog with recurrent UTI's and there's usually a strong odor associated with it (as well as frequent urination).
I read somewhere that bladder infections could be associated with a high protein diet. I didn't know if there was any truth to this or not. She has been on Innova Evo for a little while and the onset of this problem was around the same time as the food switch. She is being switched back to Timberwolf Organics Dakota Bison, as it has become available to me again.
I have also heard of hormonal issues, being spayed too early and diabetes causing this.
Has anyone ever experienced this before? Other than this issue she is totally healthy, a perfect weight, gorgeous coat, no health problems. Thanks in advance to anyone with advice or experiences to share.
