Has any one had an elderly dog that has suddenly become incontinent?
Kodi who is 13 and a half has suddenly started to wet the bed at night.
She has done it the last four out of five nights. It's only at night time that this happens.
Is this the type of thing that just suddenly happens over night? She wasn't having any issues before hand.
She had some more stem cells injected about a month ago under sedation but not GA.
She normally has a cortisone injection every 3 weeks to help with any pain but she hasn't had one now for 7 weeks as she's been doing really well. Could this have attributed to her incontinence?
I'm off to the vet this morning with her anyway and managed to grab a urine sample to get it tested for UTI's etc to see if that may be the case.
Obviously I will ask the vet all these questions as well but was just wondering if anyone had dealt with this issue in older dogs before and what treatment or tablets they used and if it was successful.
She also sleeps on my bed which doesn't help things and I don't really want to kick her off it at this point in her life. Until I can get a waterproof mattress protector I have taken to cling wrapping my bed.
If you think dogs can't count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and then giving Fido only two of them. ~Phil Pastoret
