Thank you Bruce. I was wondering about diapers or something for him. Bless his heart, he can't help the peeing, but it's going to start stinking soon!

That's pretty good idea Bruce had. Another thought and I'm not one for advocating teaching a pooch to pee indoors but what about those fake grass pads that drain down to trays. You dispose of stuff when you get home.

Nessie, I might have to try that. He had several accidents since I posted this. We just walked in one of them

Oh, he totally scratched and pawed until that diaper thingie came off Then he relieved himself

Good thing he is only on half a pill!! Can you imagine if it was the whole pill???

Do you know what grade his heart is? Was it graded by a vet or a cardiologist? As good as our vet is, she just isn't up on the latest regarding hearts. If he hasn't been seen by a cardiologist, you might consider it if you have anyone reasonably close to you. They are specialists, while vets are only generalists. A cardiologist may be able to give you some options based on the latest technology.

Bruce, this was actually his oncologist who prescribed the meds.

I called the Vet about the incontenance and she said it sounds normal.

Will look into your suggestion.

Well yes, the heart meds will cause the incontenance. But I'm confused as to why an oncologist would be prescribing heart meds for what I am assuming is a heart condition Unless he has a cancer in addition to a heart condition and the meds cover both.

Well, I believe this is what they call irony. I was sitting in the recliner with my oldest, Molly, she's my avatar, and I felt a warm wetness seeping down my leg. I raised up enough to see that she was peeing. This is the second event. A few weeks ago I woke up to a cold wet spot on the bed. I didn't know if she had peed or drooled. There was no odor to indicate which nor was there any odor with the second event. She is apparently doing this in her sleep. She's due for shots this month so I'll ask the vet. I hope it's nothing serious, she's only 11 (or there abouts.)

We switched our pooch's meds to early mornings instead of the evening as prescribed so he has more time to go out to pee than later in the day. He only had one accident yesterday!!!

Nessie, ours is 14 years old but thinks he's 2 sometimes

There are always three sides to every story, his side, her side, and the truth. I wasn't there and can't make the call but having a officer draw a weapon in a crowd is a serious business. Either way, I'm sorry this fellow lost his dog.

Our Thumoer, cairn terrier, has bee quite ill this week. Still not sure what exactly is worng. We've been ordered to have her lose weight. It's been hard to change feeding arrngements. We have always free-fed and our other two are skinny as they can be. It's almost not fair to them but I suppose we will all adapt.

What do we do for our dog? Why we bring her on vacations and she enjoys the hotels just like we do!! (Now if they'll only allow her to swim in the pool, it would be perfect):



That's her "bedtime ball" in her mouth...she breathes better with it, since her nose and jaw were shattered in an accident when she was 6 mos old


First expereince with a crab...it pinched her nose


Looking for more crabs

I think our 20+ year old kitty is starting to show her age...she's lost some weight since last December and has been demanding more food. The vet wasn't too worried about the weight loss since she could lose a few more and still be OK She suggested we wait till December to repeat her blood work which last December was fantastic for any cat, let alone one of her age! We decided to take her in last week anyway for some blood work thinking either thyroid or diabetes. Turns out her kidney values weren't so hot Elevated BUN and low urine concentration. Vet said to try special diet to help with kidney function (low protein, low phosporus). She seems to like the new food, so we'll see how she does on it and check her again in December.

I think she also has some arthritis in her hips, but she is still pretty spry with going up and down the stairs, jumping up on the bar stool to get to her food. Thinking maybe just a joint supplement would help.

That's pretty old fer a cat. We have several that range from 4 months to 10 years. All are crazy. Then we have the old dogs. Bear is almost 15. If most knew what we are doing for him they woulda put him to sleep along time ago.

This thread should be "What our pets do for us".

It is so hard to find the right word what my "pet" does for me. What a blessing he is.

All he asks for is food and shelter. In exchange he gives me so much love it overwhelms me.

He is one of the biggest reasons why I am in such a good frame of mind.

Happiness is my beloved Mikey.
