    Default older dog problems

    I have a 12 year old that has begun to develope a weak bladder. At night every so often she will wet herself or sometimes through the day she may dribble. I have limited her water intake at night and have made sure she empties herself out before lights go out at night. Just wondering if there is anything else I can do, change in diet, medication. I have purchased those female panties. Thanks for your help

    Sorry I have no advice as I have never dealt with this, but I got a good chuckle out of the "PS"!

    There is a holistic type product by HomeoPet called Leaks no More that works for about 50% of dogs or go to the vet for the presciption product.

    Thanks,
    I took her to the vet and they put her on that medication that drakehaven mentioned. They just call it PPM, much easier spelling HEHE

    It may be the same, but there is one with the trade name of Proen 50 that helped my old Boykin in his later years.
