Doris is 9.5 years old. She started regurgitating (not vomiting) portions of her food, water, or both, a few months ago...escalating to probably once or twice a day recently, with a reluctance to eat/decrease in appetite. So the vet did an exam and full bloodwork, urine test. Nothing wrong that he thought would lead to the regurgitating. He thought it might be reflux and put her on Reglan to help with gut motility, but after 2 weeks, I don't think it's helped at all. Also over the course of the last month and a half, she has peed - I've concluded, in her sleep, during the daytime. Three times (that I know about) on a bed or a chair - not a full bladder's worth. Just knowing her habits, if she were awake and had to pee, she'd only do it standing up, never while just laying there in it, so I am 99% sure she's doing it in her sleep. And, it doesn't seem to matter if she's been walked recently. Today I walked her and she peed, went to the store for 2 hours, came home and found her laying in a puddle, unaware of it. This is after a clean bill of urinary health from last week's urine test. So I've been focused on the regurgitating, but now the peeing-in-sleep issue is becoming more prominent. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with a single condition that leads to both symptoms? She's always been in very good health, so to have two things going wrong at once is new for us and I was wondering if they might be connected. (I'll be calling the vet Monday.)
