General (General discussion, talk about anything.)
Aah, recently spayed. It is a side effect of spaying, which can cause accidents or leakage from time to time.
The same female hormone also controls the spinchter at neck of the bladder, once this hormone production is removed, this can happen. (Same with human females after menopause, it can happen). It is treatable, see the Vet. One of mine has this problem intermittently, and she gets embarrassed when this happens, a clean bitch always has been. But she does
'blush' when she cannot 'hold' it or sheer surprise if she is damp around her rear quarters. We pass no comment and just deal with the spot clean (as you do)
and it keeps her self respect and dignity
