If your dog is truly leaking urine, you should definitely bring him in to your veterinarian for an exam. This could be a sign of a urinary tract infection
, anatomic abnormalities, bladder dysfunction, bladder stones
, and more.
It is possible, however, that what you are noticing is simply the normal material produced by your dog’s accessory sex glands. This liquid will sometimes collect at the end of a dog’s penis and leave a small wet mark behind when it is rubbed off. Your veterinarian should be able to tell you if what you are seeing is normal after a physical exam.
