|"The urine is colorless and semi orderless, from the sounds of things she may just be lacking estergen and is in need of hormone pills."
This is extremely unlikely. The majority of spayed female dogs (who after all have little or no estrogen production since the ovaries are removed) have no trouble with incontinence. You are probably conflating human aging processes (which include menopause, loss of estrogen) with dog aging.
A friend of mine's older female lab recently developed similar symptoms- turned out she has diabetes insipidus, where the kidneys fail to concentrate the urine, so it is very dilute. She has to drink a lot of water to keep hydrated, and pee very frequently.
Of course there are other reasons for incontinence in senior dogs, a vet check is what she needs. Good luck, hope it's nothing serious!
