Default Doggie Incontinent

Hi,

I have a 9 year old chow mix. She's always been an inside dog and rarely
had accidents. The only time there were is when she had bladder infections.
They were becoming frequent so the Vet changed her food from dry to CD in a
can. She's not had an infection in over 5 years.

We've noticed lately, she is leaving wet spots and puddles where ever she
naps or sleeps. This is totally new and I wonder now if this could be age
related. We have carpet in the bedrooms and living area and I haven't a
clue what we will do. Is there medication that helps dogs when they get up
in age and have this problem? I've got an appt. with the vet on Tuesday,
but thought I would get feedback here too.

Thanks,
Phyllis

I'd still check for another UTI, but our old Duchess leaks and she's on
DES, which she normally gets once a week. No more leaking.

Thank you! wiping brow I'm so happy to hear there's medication for this.
I'm cleaning my carpets now and moving next week to a new home. I was
thinking I'd have to rip up all the carpeting and put in wood flooring. It
will be much cheaper to put her on medication.

Phenylpropanolamine (known also as PPA). Affordable, accessible, and
effective.

Hany, just visited your site. Love your kids! I am partial to Kasha, her story
and face really grabbed me. I have a 13 yr old golden/aussie named Shilo and
she was my Mom's. There really is something about these old dogs, isn't there?

Here's my group:
