Incontinence


Recommended Posts

my poor Reddy either had a stroke or has an infection in her spine, but is losing control of her right rear leg. She finds it hard to assume the position to pee so I got her a lift harness of which she is terrified. So I've been using several different incontinent diapers but heard that Depends work better. Does anyone know what size I should get for a 55 lb. female? Thanks in advance.

 

BTW she's been to the vet 4 times, is on antibiotics and pain management and is scheduled for X-rays. My poor baby.

No she's not at this time. She's on carpaquin. She's getting worse every day.... I'm on with the vet every day. She's only 12. We lost our Jenny just last March. I'm freaking out.

I can't offer any advice on diapers, but we recently bought this harness.

We haven't had to use it yet, but wanted to keep it handy. I tried it on our dog and she didn't seem to object.

 

Wishing the best for your Reddy!
