|My 1.5-year Pomeranian Roxy (spayed) has been incontinent for last five months, leaking whenever she falls asleep.
The vet has ruled out an infection, and Roxy was placed on Proin last week. The Proin is not working. I give her the full dosage, and she's continuing to leak after seven days of starting the medication.
I'm at my wit's end and just really starting to break down. The vet said if Proin doesn't work, Roxy should get X-Rays to check for kidney stones and other abnormalities, and potentially be placed on DES (estrogen pills), because her incontinence could be due to being spayed.
But the vet said he really tries to avoid DES as much as possible, because it can undo the benefits of being spayed and cause more problems in the future.
I just don't know what to do anymore. Can anyone give me advice? I'm afraid this will be an unfixable issue, which breaks my heart. She is not even two years old...
