Leaking Urine

I have an 11 year old TWH geilding who is leaking urine. We have taken him to the vet and they did bloodwork which resulted in a slightly above normal BUN and CRE. The vet sent him home on banamene and uniprim. He acts like he feels good he eats,poops, and even runs around the pasture. I have noticed that since we have finished the meds he does not leak all of the time but he still does occasionally. This is my first horse so I am learning. I have also noticed that he stretches all the way out to pee. Is this normal behavior? We are supposed to take him back in 2 more weeks for a ultrasound and repeat bloodwork. Has anyone else had this kind of problem?

I forgot to add that the vet cleaned his sheath and there was no bean.

Could he just have a weak bladder? I mean in humans, people 'leak' all of the time when they laugh, or cough or sneeze and that's just considered a weak bladder muscle.

And some horses stretch all the way out because they don't want to get splashed. If that's normal for him, I wouldn't worry about it. Call or email the previous owner if you can to check?

I suppose this could be the case. I contacted the previous owner who had him for 2 years they said he did this when they got him and they gave him a round of pencillian but he still did it. They offered my money back but I don't want to do that because this was not a great place and they will just leave him in the pasture to die. I want to find out what is wrong and help him.

Did the vet recheck his kidney numbers? Maybe he has some sort of kidney disease that is causing his number to be high.

What did the vet tell you? What were the meds suppose to be treating?
