Hopefully I can get Velvet into the vet tomorrow - setting my alarm early as they are only open from 8 - 12. Last week she peed on the bed - hadn't done it since until again last night but this time she was sleeping and when she jumped off the bed, the wet spot was there. I cleaned it all up again, santized everything and gated the bedroom. She doesn't do accidents during the day at all. I let her out at 7:30 tonight, let her back in and w/in 30 minutes she peed in the den. She was in heat this time last year - we got her fixed. Only did this at night time? What could it be? A UTI? I thought she'd pee all day with that? Or could she be in heat again, even though she is fixed? So I get to see how Pet Plan insurance works tomorrow, providing I can get an appointment. I took the water away and she will be crated tonight. Hope it's nothing serious.
Yes, she will be on Proin the rest of her life. Your
vet was right about it being hormone related. They also call it spay incontinence. I had a female dobe that I adopted at 6yrs of age. She was spay incontinent. In talking with the previous owner, she found her as a stray and had her spayed. She was about a year old at the time. About a year later, she became incontinent, which would have made her a little over two. She was just over 12 when she crossed the Bridge.
I had to take Lucy back for blood work at 6 wks. after being on the Proin, but all is well. It will be checked every year when she goes for her HW exam.
I'm sure Velvet will do just fine. Keep us utd.
