Deciding she had to wear diapers again resulted in a restless night's sleep for me. I could hear her tearing bits and pieces of diaper off of her bottom. In the morning, I had the pleasure of picking up diaper bits - and yes, some were pee colored. Yuck.
Today, I zipped out of work quickly and went to the vets. After a phone consultation at noon, they had a baggie of drugs waiting for me when I arrived.
Here's Tessa's list of dope:
Meloxicam (think doggy Advil) - taken on an as needed basis, usually 3-4 times a week.
Clomicalm (think doggy Prozac) - taken twice a day. (Vet thinks anxiety may be part of the problem.)
Stilbesterol (can't think of a human equivalent - but it's to help her incontinence) - taken once a day.
And on order, PP something or other - another drug for incontinence.
Sounds fun, doesn't it? I'll be juggling her drug routine to try and help her to be as healthy as possible. I had really wanted to avoid the drugs - but her confusion, stress and leaking just have to be dealt with. To top it off, all the dogs were dewormed today.
