Thank you for asking. I have never paid so much attention to a dog's rear end in my life!
We noticed a tiny amount of wetness and leaking, and started her on DES (estrogen, basically) to see if that helps her not leak...since the leaking increases the chance of infection.
She was on DES daily for 5 days and was absolutely dry. We decreased the dose to twice a week. And yesterday, she leaked a LOT. We gave her another dose and are checking with the doctor to see what he wants to do.
Also, on the 8th she gets another urine culture and kidney function test.
She looks good, healthy, happy, active. We went for a 4 mile hike on Thanksgiving, go for daily walks, and she chases the ball and zooms every day! We are taking tons of pictures.
