Q. Mini schnauzer 5 years old suddenly lost control of bladder. She is also stiff, hunches over and trembles. Vet could not find any wrong with bladder.

Answered By

A. When you say she has lost control of her bladder do you mean that she is incontinent i.e. urintaes without realizing to do so ? Or is she leaking urine when she lies down ? Or on the opposite she squats more frequently and produces small amounts of urine ? Hoe does the urine look ? Did you take a sample to your vet to be tested ? If nothing was found on clinical exam, she may need further investigations, I would book a follow up appointment as it does sound like she is in pain and there must be something wrong with her.
