Guest BrauneAugen Posted February 24, 2016 Share Posted February 24, 2016 (edited) Hello! I hope this is not a repeat topic, but I had searched around the forums and I didn't find any discussions about Incurin's side effects (only Proin and I will never use it!). Are greyhounds more sensitive to Incurin and will the side effects mellow with time? Is there anything else it could be and and which tests should we ask for? It seemed to stop the leaking for a few weeks, so I guess it is a hormonal problem, but I'm wondering if it is triggering another health problem.She has been on it for almost 7 weeks with gradually smaller doses. She is 2 and a half years old, medium size, and she was spayed in November. She was leaking in her sleep (during the night and during daytime naps) when we adopted her. Her blood work was normal before taking. She has had two negative urine tests, so no UTI.She was not doing well on the higher doses. She is now leaking on the lowest one and still has some side effects. Her previously low prey drive was suddenly out of control 2 days after starting it. She was staking/whining to get at small children in the playground across the street, larger dogs, and obsessively "hunting" on walks. Other problems include drinking so much water that we had to take her out every 1-2 hours and she still sometimes peed by the door, gastrointestinal issues and weight loss (but still eating), and lots of discharge, but an infection was ruled out.For two weeks she has been taking 1/2 a pill ever other day and she started leaking 2 days ago. Her side effects are more manageable on this dose, but not gone. Her prey drive has chilled out and she ignores everything that is not a cat, we got her back up to a few lbs above her racing weight, and she is drinking less water, but still way more then before the medication. I'm nervous about increasing her dose again and the urine burns her skin. Poor girl! Incurin worked well for other dogs in my family, but maybe it is not for her?
