A couple things. A belly band would not be a bad thing for overnight. Just make sure he doesnt get any sores or urine burns.

We have Many dogs in our clinic on Phenylpropanolamine (proin). I have not seen any of the dogs that are on it (for many years most of them) have any problems like stroke or anything. We have a couple male dogs that are on it for urine leaking, and it has worked very well for them. I would not hessitate to put Riley on it if he needed it.

I agree that you should get current labs, urinalysis, and poss ultrasound of the kidneys done (esp if he does indeed have a kidney problem). I know a couple of dogs that drink a ton of water and have no medical reason. It has become a habit to drink a ton. Deffinatly get him checked out though. Dogs have to have a 75% loss of function of their kidneys for values to be off on labwork. By then it is really bad.
