I'm back with the otters again
Sep 22nd, 2017 12:43 PM   Edit   Profile   Print Topic   Search Topic

Way back in the way back while serving in the UK, I had a bladder infection. The doc provided me with some pills. They made my pee turn bright electric blue -- way cool. The typical urinal in the typical British pub is a single 10ft long white tiled wall with a single white catchment troth set into the floor. Its such a well designed way to pee in a pub -- you can't miss. But it also leads to very strange looks and comments when your pee is electric blue with 5 guys taking a pee at the same time.

Anyway,... Now the reason for this post. My idiot son made the mistake of buying a pair of male Jack Russel puppies from the same litter. I love Jack Russels and this is the fifth time I've had them. I've had two at a time before but never littermates. It's a bad idea because they bond to each other more than they'll ever bond to a person. But we are dealing with it. After a year, we have a problem with house training and its worse because they are males. They know the rules but one or both of them will pee on something when ever something new is on the floor or something is moved to a new location. I don't know who is doing it and I need to do something about it. They are very clever and too clever to get caught in the act.

Does anyone know of the medication name for the pills that make your pee turn blue? ...Or any substance that I could safely give to one of these dogs to change the color of their pee so I can tell who is peeing on the floor and take effective action?? A pill would be easy to use.

Good plan, but I would ask a vet as to what's safe.

Those medications contain analgesics, and probably also anti-spasmodics, so I would say you should absolutely not give them to a pet without consulting a vet.

Urelle and Urised are two that come to mind off the op of my head (or off the pain of my multiple kidney stones!). I have never taken either, my doc prefers Pyridium which makes your pee look like the Hi-C orange drink from McDonald's.

How about asparagus? Put some asparagus in Bonzo's food and you will certainly smell it in his pee.

Get a nanny cam, move the coffee table and point the camera at the table while you are away. Heck just lay a towel on the floor. He, one the other or both might go for that.

If you have a home wireless network this is very easy and you can watch on your smart phone.

I think that they are just marking. One marks then the other over marks. Male dogs do this more than females who do it also. My previous GSD would do this at the Vet. I'd walk her around outside until she would squirt then take her in. Then bam, she'd wet the floor the little "B". Well not so little but you get the idea.

Not only that, but time means some pills are no longer available and new more effective meds are out. Human pills do not mean canine pills and vice versa. Yes, there is is some overlap, but beware, Vets are trained for this.

Just like everything on the internet there are always opposing facts and opinions. Sometimes I feel angry enough to just shoot one of these guys (Turbo and Diesel) but I really couldn't take the chance of poisoning one of them -- I couldn't live with myself and I'd probably spend a thousand dollars in a vet bill to make them better. I'm going to see a vet. I already need to replace the laminate floor. I gotta fix the dog before I fix the floor.

Hey thanks everyone for helping out -- for real.

You are going about it all wrong.

Crate the pups (or otherwise contain them), properly train them, and they will learn not to pee where they live. You gradually introduce them to the rest of the house in a supervised manner.

What Peegoo said is on the money...my dad was a very well known and successful dog trainer for many years, and that is exactly what he would have advised.

“What Peegoo said is on the money“

You could cut and paste this into most threads and it would be at least 99% accurate.
