    Default Male lab - urinary tract infection???

    Have a 3 yr old intact male lab. Thinking he must be developing some kind of infection or prostate problem or something. I've noticed in the last couple days on a different occasions, instead of lifting his leg to pee it just starts running out of him, even while he's just walking around, and he eventually squats to finish. Its almost like he doesn't realize he's doing it. Ive also noticed that it's a very long time to empty his bladder as well as a very strong odor from the urine. Just this afternoon it happened in the house so something's not right...

    Anybody ever seen anything like this? Thinking a trip to the vet may be in order.....

    Trip to the vet is definitely in order! There is no question. You have all the signs of infection.

    You need to get him checked ASAP. Bladder/UTI's in intact male dogs are a big deal- they can spread to the prostate and be very difficult to resolve.
