Canine Bladder Infections
Dogs that suffer from rectal prolapse will likely strain during defecation and may lick the prolapsed tissue. It's not a behavioral problem; it's a medical issue. There are many causes for urine leaking, including trauma to the central nervous system, damage to the pudendal nerve the nerve that works the neck of the bladderdiseases of the bladder, kidney, or adrenal glands for instance, Cushing's disease, hypothyroidism, or diabetesas well as bladder stones, birth defects, and urethral obstruction.
