She's 2.5 years, was spayed a year ago and this just started. Mostly when she gets up after laying down there is a puddle. I just have no idea what's going on. Anyone dealt with this in a young dog? I know boxers are really prone to cancer but she's really young and healthy.
Thanks,

Sounds like it's time for a vet visit. Is she spayed? It could be spay incontinence. It can be well controlled with medication from what I recall.

I have experienced this twice with my dog (a German Shepherd, now 6 years old). The first time it was a side effect of medication the vet gave her for an ear infection. The second time it was a bladder infection. The vet did talk to me about spay incontinence, and told me that if was still "leaking" after a round of antibiotics, we'd look into the other possibility. Luckily the bladder infection cleared up and she was just fine.

Yes, if it is spay incontinence, it is very easily treated with an affordable medicine.
