My dog was spayed 2 days ago and i was just wondering what this could be..?
it started late this afternoon.. i noticed she's been peeing on the carpet every hour or so sometimes every few hours in very little amounts and she never did this beforewill this go away or is it permanent? does it sound like incontinence? she never leaks or goes like while walking or sleeping or anything.

it would probably be a better idea to take her to the vet instead of sitting around asking people on yahoo. juust sayin
It sound like your dog could have a UTI, get her to the vet and have her checked out.
urinary tract infection. better take your dog to the vet so they can test her. Meds will do the trick!
it is likely NOT a UTI, it would have been picked up on the blood work prior to surgery.It IS likely due to the hormone drop she's going through due to the removal of her ovaries..estrogen gives strength to the bladder sphincter, so when ovaries are removed these muscles weaken, leading to dribbles or accidents. "Estrogens. Estrogens play a role in the maintenance of neuroreceptors in the bladder sphincter. Without estrogens, a common problem in spayed females, the receptors ignore the message to store the urine and it leaks out, often while sleeping. The estrogen DES (diethylstilbestrol), is the most common estrogen for dogs. Although DES is no longer considered safe for humans, the low dosage required for dogs is considered safe. The medication has to be ordered through a compounding pharmacy. The normal dose is 1mg once a day for five days and then once every four to seven days thereafter. A male dog seems to respond better to testosterones, but the dog must be watched for aggression issues, which are sometimes a side effect of the therapy."It may be only until her body adjust, or it may be permanent, which requires a medication like Stillbesterol or Propalin to keep her from having the dribbles.http://www.vet4petz.com/articles/urinary_incontinence.htmhttp://www.peteducation.com/article.cfm?c=2+2114&aid=487
