Bad Dog Behavior

<p>
Urinary tract disease: “Dogs at the age of 5 years below often come upon accidents due to this infection,” as stated by Todd Smith of Temperance Animal Hospital in Michigan. “Puppies are also at risk.” Typically, the dog wets plus other abnormal clinical indicators.

If a dog takes much amount of water than the normal volume he has to drink, it is frequently possible for him to urinate redundantly. He needs fluid but only in required amount. The urinary bladder would have to hold more fluid wastes and will force his urinary muscles to work intensely than usual.

Endocrine disorders: There are a lot of endocrine hormonal disorders that distress dogs.One is the diabetes mellitus where there is an inadequate production of insulin by the pancreas. It can also be an Addison’s disease where the adrenal glands’ manufacturing of cortisol are lower than normal or the Cushing’s syndrome that is caused by overproduction of cortisol by the same glands. These diseases often cause a dog to drink more water than normal and wet more, increasing the likelihood of urinary accidents. This is more observable if other clinical symptoms arise.

“Diabetic dogs usually lose weight despite good trials to increased appetite; if untreated, they also may encounter vomiting, loss of appetite or diabetic coma,” Smith says.  “If a dog’s skin and coat abnormally change, has great craving for food, looks like a pot-belly, and oddly behaves, he may be experiencing the Cushing’s syndrome. An Addisonian dog often experiences a waxing and waning course of vomiting, diarrhea or lethargy. This condition is hard to diagnose and is therefore often unnoticed at first.”

Brain or spinal cord disease can cause a dog to lose control over bladder function. Since the brain acts as the control room for any creature towards his activities, the abnormal function of the brain can prevent the dog in restraining his urine.

Metabolic illnesses: these are primarily kidney and liver disease, pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas) and pyometra (uterine infection).

<p>
“Dogs with kidney or liver disease habitually have increased thirst and urination, leading to urinary accidents,” Smith says. “In the early stages, no other signs are reported. In progressive there is usually a loss of appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy and, in liver disease only, jaundice yellowing of the mucous membranes.
</p>
<p>
Pancreatic disease in dogs result in vomiting, diarrhea, appetite loss, weariness, abdominal aching, and fever.
</p>

“Female dogs that are unspayed are in need for check up for the chance of pyometra especially if they had the illness after some weeks of her last “heat” cycle’ Smith suggests. Urinary accidents usually happen if a dog has pyometra. Thirst, lethargy, vaginal discharge, vomiting, appetite loss, and (occasionally shock are the symptoms of this disease.
</p>
<p>
Dogs loses the ability to hold their urine at some stage in their old age. As they age, they begin to lose some of their senses and it involves their capacity to control urination – the result of senility. Another cause is their urinary bladder’s muscles also lose strength in controlling the sphincter so dogs are not able to hold their urine.

Through urinating, the system of the dog is cleansed because the unwanted wastes are flushed out with the fluid. Exercising in daily basis is a way to persuade urination in dogs.
