Current Replies for dribbling lab

I have a female lab that is 14 years old and except for a large fatty tumor, she is still very active. However, when she pees I've noticed that she dribbles down her leg and she really gets to stinking. My one vet had her on some pills that are like a decongestant...PP something but they didn't help. Now he has given me some spray that smells like rubbing alcohol. It doesn't help either. Someone told me that their vet gave their dog some liquid medicine that smells like vanilla that cured her dog right off the bat. I've searched on the internet and can't find anything. I love my dog but she smells so bad that you can't hardly stand to be near her. I try to keep her clean down there too.

Your dog is 14 years old. she is very elderly. She is probably loosing bladder control.

I suggest trying a new vet.

So sorry to hear that about your dog. You might want to get a second opinion regarding that matter. Other vets may have an idea on how to really cure her. Good luck!

My first vet prescribed the PPA pill, the second one gave me the spray. So I've had her to two different vets.

I am so disappointed with vets. My lab got sick Tuesday night with throwing up and diaherra so I took her to my vet the next morning and he put her on some stuff for her stomach, gave her an IV to put some liquids back in her and a couple of shots and also so Flagyl. She's been on the flagyl since Wednesday and wow she no longer has that disgusting smell down there! I've had her to two vets and they never took a urine sample. I guess because of her age, they assumed it was incontinence and said if the PPA pills didn't work, there was nothing they could do, however, I told them that her bed is dry. I really think it was an infection of her vagina that the Flagyl took care of.

Hey, I read in dog fancy that corn silk helps with bladder and incontinence's worth a shot! I'm all for the "natural" route...sounds like you have it under control though!
