Default I know there is something wrong with Horatio.. Just can't figure out what. Any input

I know it is not a bladder infection because he'll be perfectly fine for a month or two. Normal pee, no accidents. ETC. Then it will be like he will have problems getting all his urine out. Like we'll stand there for 10-15 minutes while he pees. It'll be like stream... dribble dribble dribble... stream... ETC. And then that's when he has accidents in the house and you can tell he literally CAN NOT stop himself. And he will pee ALL over this house, go outside and pee a ton more. Then after a day or two, or once we get one good solid stream... He'll be fine for a month or so again. Could this be incontinence?? I know I girl who had a GSD with Reflex Dyssynergia. This sounds a lot like that but a very mild form. I'm hoping its not that! HELP!!! I think after the holidays I'm going to try to have a discussion with the vet about thsi problem.

Bladder stones?

I was also thinking bladder stones. The stones don't cause a problem until they move into his urethra where they will block his pee coming out. So he'll be normal while the stones are in his bladder, but once once moves into his urethra he'll start showing the symptoms you described. Then he'll manage to pass the stone and he'll go back to normal again. Vet should be able to tell with a urinalysis or ultrasound of his bladder.

Thanks! I read about them after reading this and it sounds right!! Is there a cure or something to stop him from getting bladder stones? I'll have to look a bit more.

You'll need to find out what kind of stones. Different stones form in different urine PH. Once you find out what kind of stones you can adjust his diet and add supplements to adjust the Ph of his urine, but the vet's will try and sell you a prescription food.

Could also be the prostate causing the problem.

My boxer Bailey had similar symptoms and they discovered that she had 3 fairly large bladder stones that would move around and could have blocked her urethra. She also had the same peeing then dribbling problem...you may want to have your vet do an xray so it doesnt become an emergency situation if something happens to block his urethra. If theyre too big to pass they will suggest surgery, which is what we opted to do...now shes on a special diet and bottled water to keep them from coming back.
