Wetting when laughing

My youngest is now 7, he has had his fair share of illness, he has nocturnal epilespy and is on medication for it, but for quite a few months I have noticed that when he laughs he tries to dash to the toilet but more often than not he doesn't get there.

He doesn't wet himself at any other time, he doesn't wet the bed but he does get out of bed EVERY night about 1/2am. He doesnt drink before bed and does go to the toilet before bed, but this does show he has bladder control.

I have tried doing some pelvic exercises with him but he does it quite a lot. It just seems quite strange it is only when he laughs

Is there anything I can do to help him out?

Hmm, first thing I would do is take him to the doctor to see if he has any type of bladder infection going on. It is unusal for a 7 year old to have that problem. And with all you have said it seems you are doing everything you can do, but there has to be a reason for a 7 year old to have the problem.

I have a question of you because you said he has epilespy. I have cat that has it and it really tears me up when she has the siezures! She was born here and holds a special place in our hearts. She takes medication for it, but it doesn't totally ,make the seizures not happen. All we do is try to hold her tight when she has them until she calms down. I just don't know what else to do! Any suggestions..maybe?

Aww thats sad that the little kitty has seizures, there's nothing much you cando, like our little one really.

Stand by with a blanket to cover her when she comes round, she can be dis-orientated and want cuddles then. Never put your fingers (or anything else) near the mouth (cats cannot swallow their tongues)

If the fit last longer than 5 mins then a vet should be called.

Im going to try and get him to see the dr tomorrow to see why it is happening Thank you
