"We're new to town and read the reviews for Dr Price and decided to Windmill a go. So happy we did! Their whole office from the front desk to the treatment and meeting Dr Price was 5 Star all the way! I know our babies will be well taken care of! I even had a technician help me out to the car which made my day as I had my hands FULL! Would recommend to anyone! "

"This is the best vet in Abilene! I have tried countless other veterinary clinics and Windmill out-does them all. They value my pet and my experience more than my money, and they are always showing care and compassion to both my dog and me. They even call after every appointment, just to check-up and make sure we're doing okay! AMAZING service and incredible people!"

Why does my dog urinate when excited?

back to FAQ list

This is a common problem with young dogs, especially puppies. The pet urinates when excited due to 3 main reasons:

1. First, the dog's excitement causes him to not monitor his urinary sphincter control properly, and urine can leak when that sphincter relaxes.  Remember, young dogs, like young children, still need to consciously monitor their urinary control.  Most puppies and young dogs outgrow this problem.

2. Second, the act of urination is, to a dog, an act of submission: the "leaky" dog is telling us how glad he is to see us, his team leaders, and that he's our loyal supporter.  A good way to reduce the "leaking" problem is to avoid getting the family dog all worked up and excited--don't make a huge fuss when you get home from work, for example.  With time and maturity, most pets outgrow this problem.

3. Third, urinary leakage can also be due to urinary infection.  If your pet's urine has a strong odor, a funny color, or blood in it, your pet needs to be seen by one of our Doctors immediately.  Also, if your pet's urinary leakage seems to come and go, he may have a low-grade chronic urinary infection, and needs to be examined.
