Leaking Urine- Potential Ectopic Ureter- URGENT HELP NEEDED

Hi guys,

My beautiful little 5 month old GR (that's her in my profile pic), Sophie has has this leaky-bladder problem.

She has been toilet trained- and even goes to poo/pee properly.

Now, the problem is, she leaks urine while she sleeps & sometimes when she's walking around.

It wasn't really a problem, except for the smell, and the vet said she would grow out of it.

But, at this age, she still hasn't and now the vet says something is wrong but he doesn't know what & told me to get a 2nd opinion.

Sophie's got slight urine-scalding around the vaginal area, but is other a happy, healthy little pup.

I have looked up Ectopic Ureter and it sounds that she has that, but, I need a vet to run tests to confirm this & do the corrective surgery if tis is that.

Does anyone know a vet who can diagnose this/ perform the op if needed?

I do not care what the cost is, she is my baby & I've already lost one dog back in Jan & cear to lose another.

Please help.

Re: [shapeshifter] Leaking Urine- Potential Ectopic Ureter- URGENT HELP NEEDED

I would recommend this clinic :-

Look specifically for Dr.Yeoh himself. You can call up to make sure he is in. He is one vet with really long and good experience in this field. UPM is also good provided that the doctor must be good also. Yeoh's clinic has full equipments also and he has saved my dog before. Pls keep us all updated.. Thanks..

Re: [ai_ney] Leaking Urine- Potential Ectopic Ureter- URGENT HELP NEEDED

Hi,

thanks so much.

Only thing is Serdang is rather far, but I will def keep that in mind- even my mum said likely that would be a good place to start as we reckon they should have the necessary equipment.

Re: [acsyen] Leaking Urine- Potential Ectopic Ureter- URGENT HELP NEEDED

Thank you.

This is a better and more convenient location for me.

Luckily my vet was honest about it and told me to seek a 2nd opinion as he didn't know what was wrong.

And told me that leaky-urine is not normal.

I will check out Dr Yeoh's clinic, thanks so much guys.

Re: [ai_ney] Leaking Urine- Potential Ectopic Ureter- URGENT HELP NEEDED

Hey, thanks for your recommendation of the UPM clinic, I did take my Sophie to the clinic in PJ.

The vet was really good! I'm impressed, plus he said he didn't want to simply give her medication till 100% sure what was wrong.

So firstly he said might be infection, just take antibiotics for a week, if still no improvement, bring her back, they will give referral to the Serdang hosp.

And he even told me straight that it could be so many things- weak bladder muscles, small urethra, or even the ectopic urethra- which they can confirm once they've done x-ray, neurological exams & blood tests.

She still seems to be a little leaky, esp when she wakes up, poor thing.

However, urine scalds have completely cleared.

Probably will go sometimes withing the next 2 weeks.
U're frend has nothing but praises nfor her lah?

I hope she's available, coz I was told she's very busy- so I'll make an appointment soon.

Thanks for the info.Sly

Re: [ai_ney] Leaking Urine- Potential Ectopic Ureter- URGENT HELP NEEDED

Hi

Sorry for the delayed reply.

Yp, they 100% confirmed she has ectopic ureter; surgery's on Friday.

I had no heart wanna leave her also but no choice la. Tsk.

She's damn sad apparently coz she can't eat lol. Poor thing.

this 1st half is gonna cost a bit- RM1750.

That's just the op & testing according to the vet.

The rest... die la... apparently the entire cost can be up to 4k.

My brother wants to go n hantam the lady who sold her to me bcoz it is damn kesian for this poor innocent pup. To me I see no point.

i love her so I cannot give her away, I will take care of her. I miss her like mad; it's been 3 days.

y other dog also misses her- tunjuk muka la the fella. lol.
Hopefully once surgery's done she's ok.

thanks so much for your recommendation; the staff there have been so good n professional.

yea, i could never give any one of my dogs up!

If they're sick I'd rather take care of them; plus who knows what someone else who's not compassinate will do!

Yes, Her surgery's this morning so my mum will call them to check the status later this afternoon.

Since Monday's a holiday I think they'll discharge her on Tuesday.

Re: [acsyen] Leaking Urine- Potential Ectopic Ureter- URGENT HELP NEEDED

Went to visit Sophie today.

As soon as she saw us, she got super excited, and tried to jump to lick us, but because of the Elizabeth collar, it was so hard, poor thing.

LOL. She seems totally fine, been told she'll be discharged next week.

I was so happy to see her, I've missed her like mad.

Re: [shapeshifter] Leaking Urine- Potential Ectopic Ureter- URGENT HELP NEEDED

Glad to hear all went smoothly.. Just make sure she doesn't lick/bite her wound when she gets back.. Better to keep the e-collar on until her stitches heals..

I rmb'd when my other 2 got spayed, the vet gave the green light to take off the collar but told us to put old t-shirts for them to shop wound licking.

they looked so cute, hahaha.

Re: [acsyen] Leaking Urine- Potential Ectopic Ureter- URGENT HELP NEEDED

Sophie came home today, needs to go for a follow up on the 26th.

She's healthy, the doctor said her bladder needs to get used to getting all full & stuff, so she's still gonna be slightly leaky for a few months.

What I wasn't so pleased about was I caught her scratching herself vigourously, and when I checked, she had a tick on her.

And after I check all over, she had FIVE.

Man..... I'm gonna have to go buy the lotion/shampoo/flea collar.

Re: [shapeshifter] Leaking Urine- Potential Ectopic Ureter- URGENT HELP NEEDED

It's like that le when your dog goes away from you and is exposed to other dogs. Never know what they might get. Just need to get some anti tick solutions... Glad to hear she's all good now.. Wish her a speedy recovery..

Re: [ai_ney] Leaking Urine- Potential Ectopic Ureter- URGENT HELP NEEDED

yen- yea i knw, but when the other 2 went for spaying @ the normal vet we go to, they came back with nothing.

But nvm la, just have to clean it up, and since it's in early stages it shld be ok.

ai_ney- yea she's her same naughty self, like as if nothing happened, lol. Dr said when she was awaiting surgery she was depressed coz she didnt understand why no one wld feed her. So funny.

My parents bought a rubber ball for her, and now aiyoh, she's not letting me sit alone, keeps bringing it to me to play fetch with her!

Yea, i got the Frontline solution, have applied for her, hope this works well, if not she won't be happy as she cannot play with Sprite (sprite is black somemore, die la if get ticks!)

Re: [ai_ney] Leaking Urine- Potential Ectopic Ureter- URGENT HELP NEEDED

I checked today, and still tick free.

She'll be admitted again next Mon for follow up evaluation or smthg, so since now FRontline has been applied I hope when she comes back no problems.

I just hate hate tick issues.

My sister's Spitz died frm a tick-borne disease, but the funny thing is she was tick free.

I still shocked & sad. But she had a gd life when she came to us, we cleared her ticks 9stupid ex owner dunno wtf they did- nvr look aft her properly.)

Hi,

My 6 mths old GR is leaking urine also and I would like to bring her to Dr. Yeoh coz it's nearer. One question, if my dog is diagnosed with ectopic ureter, do I need to bring her to UPM to get it fixed? Does Dr. Yeoh perform the surgery?

Re: [ultramandyna] Leaking Urine- Potential Ectopic Ureter- URGENT HELP NEEDED

Sorry to say, if it is ectopic ureter, only surgery will solve it, but even taht it takes time for the urine to completely stop leaking.

But yes, u better take her (I assume the pup is female coz mostly females have this problem) to the vet and check.

Sometimes it might just be a weak bladder.

Re: [ultramandyna] Leaking Urine- Potential Ectopic Ureter- URGENT HELP NEEDED

She's ok, thanks for asking.

Still slightly leaking urine but much less and sometimes not at all(depends on how full her bladder is- most of time leaks when she's a sleep).

Doctor said it's normal to leak a bit coz bladder is still adjusting, so it'll take a few months.

Good to hear your pu is doing alright:)

Hello Andrew, sorry for my VERY late reply.

I have found your other thread & have responded there. If you'd like to get in touch via email, do PM me.

Sophie is 6 now. She is starting to show signs of what I suspect is hip dyslapsia. Will be taking her to UPM this week to confirm (I pray it's not, but looks like it could very well be).
