Our boxer, Ruby is only 10 months old and for the past week or so, I've noticed little droplets of urine on our hardwood floor.  At first I thought it was just water from her water dish, but I can literally see the drops of urine coming out of her every once in awhile.  She seems fine otherwise and never has an accident in the house.  She does the occasional squirt when she'd excited, but this happens when she's just walking around.  Sometimes right after going outside to pee.  Should I take her to see her vet?  She was spayed back around Thanksgiving, could something have gone wrong during surgery?  Thanks!

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I have a friend who has a Boxer and hers was spayed pretty early and she now leaks. She was told by her vet that because her muscles hadn't strengthen enough by the time they spayed her now she ahs a leaking problem. It kinda makes sense to me, but I don't know if her vet is feeding her a line ya know.
Maybe Sharon can pipe in.

Could be either one, but if she was spayed last year, I would kinda lean towards a UTI...It does tak e time after the spay for the muscles to heal, we dealt with that with Angel, plus she had that surgery to correct her prolapse...So it did take awhile for her to get control again...Tia was spayed as well and we never had any issues like that...It wouldn't hurt to have your vet check her out tho

I agree to have her checked I would think more UTI then anything else...Usually problems with the surgery will show up either right away or as Ginger sometimes they can have a problem after being spayed young....this is generally in dogs that are spayed YOUNG such as 3 or 4 months old.....but it generally does not show until later in age....
