    DefaultLeaking urine

    Hello,

    We adopted our 1 year-old yellow lab back in June, and got him neutered about 2 weeks later. After that we started to notice him leaking urine (mostly while he sleeps). We took a urine sample to the vet and everything came back normal.. The vet prescribed Proin for urinary incontinence and we've been giving him two a day (how much the vet told us). It seems to have slowed down the leakage somewhat but it is still there. Just this morning I noticed a little bit of blood in his stool. Also, he been drinking a lot more water the past few weeks. Does anyone have any ideas/ suggestions?

    He has an appointment next month to get x-rays. The vet thinks it could possibly be an ectopic ureter.

    She said the blood in his stool could have been anything, and that most likely it was unrelated to the leaking urine. I haven't seen anymore since that morning so I'm going to guess it was nothing serious.

    In my experience a pup born with an ectopic ureter would leak from birth. But you should still check it out. Why are you waiting till next month for the x-ray and thinking an ultrasound would be more definitive for diagnosis of EU? (check his kidneys at the same time)

    If you find that it is truly incontinence I have heard of people getting results by feeding soy milk. I believe it is 1/2 cup per day, avoiding long term use of Proin.

    i have a female with spay incontinence, which started at about 4. she was spayed at 2, so i guess we're just lucky.
    before i started any meds from the vet i did some investigating with herbs.and chinese herbs. used tofu but she started chewing her feet.
    it's working.
    pm me if you're interested.
    my vet is amazed.

    We are waiting until next month because we are also getting our puppy neutered and our vet is a decent drive away so we decided to make their appointments together. We stopped giving him Proin because it wasn't working and I'm pretty sure that is what was causing the excessive thirst. There is no way for us to know if he has been leaking since birth since he was almost a year old when we adopted him as a stray. The vet suggested x-ray, ultrasound and blood work.
