• after my dog urinates he will sometime leak more urine after he lays down. Sometime he leaks hours after he has urinates. Would stones in the bladder cause this.

    Hi Bill,
    I recommend that you take him into see a veterinarian. Bladder stones can potentially cause this but there can be other causes as well. These other causes include a urinary tract infection, kidney disease, incontinence, or an underlying medical issue. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of these symptoms after they have examined him. They may recommend some lab tests and/or x-rays to help diagnose or rule out certain diseases. The treatment that he needs will depend on the underlying cause of his symptoms.
