Hi folks.
My 7 year old neutered male ferret has been dribbling urine for several wee=
ks - we find a line of dribbles along the floor as tho he was walking and u=
naware that he was peeing as he went. Sometimes there is also a small pudd=
le in such a wrong place that it seemed he might not have realized he was c=
aught unawares.

Vet did a urinalysis and didn't find anything significant. He said there w=
as a small amount of crystals in the urine but he wouldnt assume a bladder =
stone based on that.

The ferret seems healthy otherwise. He is active and cheerful etc.

I looked back at your archives and the only references i found to dribbling=
urine seemed to refer to it as a secondary (or tertiary) symptom in adrena=
l disease. At this point we see no other signs of adrenal problems.

I would greatly appreciate any comments.
