Just wondering how many of you have owned females that have suffered at some point in their life from incontinence? If so, was your female spayed or intact? Thanks!
No I don't have an incontinent female but I have been told that spaying increases the occurence of incontinence and I am just trying to see what the experiences are of the people on this board.debs said:Unfortunatly my females when they got old - 10 years or older became incontinent. My rotti mix is 10 1/2 -11 years old and is starting. It stinks both in the carpet and for the poor animal. My vet said that is common in spayed animals. Why do you have one?
Well she's not going to die from incontinence but she could die from pyometra right? Besides you get great results with PPA or DES hormone therapy when it comes to incontinence.Kelly said:I was also told that when you spay the chance of this happening is greater then having an unspayed dog more so when they get older 7-8.My brother in law has a dobbi who was spayed , she is 10 now and has had this problem since she was 6 and it is only getting worse with age.I have Molly spayed and she is 7 and I have not had this problem yet~ knocking on wood now ~ So you either go through the heat cycles or have a dog that pees all over which is what I said to my vet who told me this, I guess you cant win...........lol
