  1. We can't figure out what's wrong with my (almost) 12 year old greyhound. I took her to the vet 3 weeks ago with diarrhea. Metronidazole 500mg and subcutaneous fluids didn't help. Soon after, she started drinking lots of water and became incontinent. If I don't make her go out every 2 hours (longer at night), she will pee in her bed. After another visit last week, my vet suspected mild azotemia and renal insufficiency. Her specific gravity (refractory) was 1.020; no protein in urine; BUN was 37; and CRE was 2.0. The vet wanted keep her overnight and do an IV fluid diuresis, but I opted for m
  2. The issue, my 5 year old greyhound has been diagnosed with spay incontinence. Kidney values were checked all normal. 2 different meds have been recommended 1 - Diethylstilbestrol (DES) and 2 - Phenylpropanolamine (Proin) I was hoping to get your feedback on side effects, dosage and symptoms of incontinence. Chai has been on DES since March 1st 2013, the recommended dosage was 1 every day for 2 days, 1 every 2 days for 4 days then 1 every 3-4 days for maintenance. She was having some breakthrough at every 4 days so I switched her to every 3 days, still more breakthrough at every 3 day
  3. Uri, age 13, has started leaking urine - not full accidents, just leakage when he sleeps. We're trying to manage it with Leaks No More drops and going outdoors every 3 hours for a pee, but overnights or longer stints, he still leaks. So we got a belly band and tried it yesterday and overnight for the first time. Sadly -- and he's mortified of course that I'm sharing this publicly -- it seems that Uri's penis is not long enough to stay inside the band! I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem or if I'm not putting it on him properly. When I wrap it around his waist, sliding i
  4. Hello friends, I hope you are all well. Several years ago this community was wonderful in its support of our efforts to keep our space aggressive greyhound, Joe, while also having a young child in the house. (Old thread here.) Almost six years and one more kid later, Joe is happily still with our family. It has been a long and winding road, but (knock on wood) there have been no incidents and he will be ten years old in July! I am writing because we are about to visit the vet again to address his recently developed incontinence and I want to be as informed as possible. I have done quite
  5. so, all has been well with Jonny and we've finalised the adoption by ending the trial period early. It's as though we've had him with us for years! Oddly, though, today specifically, every time Jonny falls asleep he does a wee. regardless of where he is. he did it last night (which i realised this morning) and I thought it might be just because he was obviously busting to go. I took him for a walk when I got up at 6:30 immediately and he did a huge wee. So he must have had a lot stored up. Poor dude. (we will remove the water bowl at night) but he has just done it again while sleepi
  6. Hi there, This is my first post here. I am a new greyhound owner...since June. Our beautiful boy is having some urinary issues (since about 3 weeks after we got him). He has days of excessive thirst and then cannot hold his bladder and will pee in his crate even if in there for a short time. It seems to fluctuate...he will be good for 4 days (drinking normal amounts, peeing shorter amounts and more yellow, and able to hold) and then he will have a couple bad days. His blood work is normal and unrine test normal....except that his urine was not very concentrated at one of his urine test
