A. If the dog is unaware that it is urinating then it is probably an age related incontinence. There are medications available from your vet to help with this such as propalin. If she is aware and trying to pass urine regularly but only passing small amount each time then it is likely to be an infection, again medications are available from your vet. Medications will differ depending upon the cause. If you are able to take a fresh urine sample with you that will help with diagnosis.
