Earlier this year, Hungarian Vizsla cross Blue was hit by a train. Amazingly he survived, but was left with a punctured lung and needed pins in his spine, pelvis and both legs, and a nylon cord inserted to hold his left hip in place.
Blue has undergone extensive physiotherapy and care and is doing really well.
His owner, Debbie, has got in touch to say he has just started to pee in the house at night when the family is asleep. They are concerned as he has never done this before and are unsure whether or not this is related to his accident. Someone had suggested it could be a separation anxiety issue, but Blue sleeps in his own bed in Debbie’s bedroom as he needed round-the-clock care, so Debbie doesn’t think this is the reason.
Does anyone have a similar experience with their own dog? We have of course suggested Debbie asks her vet, with whom she is in regular contact following Blue’s accident.
