Default Urinary Spay Incontinence

not me. temperance.

i spayed her before her first heat and i think because she hadn't matured she now has this. next female dog i get i will wait til she has at least one heat and then spay her mid way.

she wet the couch yesterday and the bed last night. it happens when she's relaxed.

i have temperance on an estrogen therapy so off to the vet at 9 to see if i need to increase the dose or look at proin.

i am also going to have her tested to see if she has an uti.

i haz a sad because she's the love of my life and i hope i didn't mess her up getting her spayed too young.

so her meds were upped from .5 mg DES every 7 days to 1 mg DES every 5 days.

anyone here dealing with Urinary Spay Incontinence? I feel so bad for the Poof right now. would you do proin over hormones? would you look at a different hormone over des?

Don't beat yourself up. I've had this issue with several of my girls, no matter the age they were spayed. One of the most frustrating issues ever is to come home after a long shift at work, do all my chores and crawl into bed, just to find a huge wet spot and have to do laundry and change the sheets. :/ She was spayed at 10 after having 3 litters and still ended up with it.

I also can not get des, but I've had decent luck with an OTC suppliement also. It's called Bladder Control by NutraVet. It's working really well for the little girl I had spayed at one year of age that I swear, came home from the vet after surgery with urinary incontinence. I think they are going to get it no matter what, it's up to us to sort out a way of managing it. Not pleasant for us or them. Poor girls.

We use a namebrand product called propalin at my work for the problem, and I agree it can happen no matter what age the dog was spayed. If you are talking about spaying a dog mid-heat, I'd never suggest that. When they are in heat everything inside is swollen and there is WAY more blood flow down there. It means a riskier surgery because it takes so long to stop all the little blood vessels from bleeding. The two things a good surgeon does is keep bleeding absolutely minimal and reduce anesthetic time, so almost all vets will ask you to wait until 2 weeks or more after the last heat...

Faerie, how old was Temperance when you got her spayed?

Our standard girl is almost 1 yo, and has not gone into heat yet. I was thinking of having her spayed before we take a week off for Christmas so that we are home to supervise/care for her, but am concerned about doing it too young as well.

6-7 months.

i wish i had waited til she had her first heat. i guess that my girl is one of the 20% who gets this ... but it could have been lessened if i had just waited a bit longer.

Tina,

My Standard Lulu had to be spayed just under six months due to an umbilical hernia that got so large it was unsafe. When she was between two and three , the same thing started happening to her....only when sleeping. My vet put her on Proin twice a day for 21 days, it stopped completely. When she ran through the course of medication, I decided to try her without it......two weeks after discontinuing it the leaking started again. She is now back on Proin since September, the dosage has been cut back to once a day and we are hoping to cut her back to 2-3 times weekly. I have not noticed any side effects and she has had no leakage since we started her back on it. I hope this helps.

Ditto was in her second heat when I spayed her and she still got it. I would definitely look into proin. It is relatively cheap, it is chewable, and it works well. I would be nervous about giving estrogen.
