TOO MANY PeePee Accidents after Potty Training = SPAYING INCONTINENCE!
We took Lucy our 10 month Saint to the vet, after too many little accidents or full soakings... She would wake up in the morning or from a lovely Saint nap, and her hind end or tail was little wet or just dripping soaked. Lucy has been trained from about 4-6 weeks after we brought her and brother home at 8 weeks. Lucy is hands down the smartest, and eager to please Saint we have every owned (#4) I was 95% sure these were not simply training accidents, and she would wake up clueless that she was soaked. The first time it happened was the night she came home from being spayed that afternoon. She was lying on the couch with us, and got up to go out for evening potty time, she was soaked the coach was soaked. We called the vet; they said if it happens again that night or the next day call, otherwise figure she was out of it still from anesethia. Well it happened about a week later, she napping on the hardwood and rug, and there was puddle on the wood, and so on... a few times a week or just once a week, she would have an accident.
Finally, I called the vet, we went in. They said its spaying incontinence; it can happen USUALLY if spayed to early, however Lucy was the prescribed 6 months. They gave me "Proin" said it would help or cure the problem, and most likely after a 10 day course, the sphincter muscle "remembers" what it's supposed to do, and starts working again on its own. Being the ever faithful Suspicious Saint Mommy, I read all about "Proin" - The good, the bad, and the ugly. After reading many experiences, everything from Severe Withdrawn Personality in a normal outgoing friendly girl, Death, Stroke, and then many that gave it to their fur babies and they were just fine. I decided to finally give to her, and WATCH. I gave her a 6-days of a 10-day course, I think she was acting a little sketchy after a week, however no accidents. My husband thinks I am over protective, and thought she was fine. Who knows? Anyway, She went almost 5weeks no accidents, I thought yippee it worked....Well, we still have accidents,(not as many and still not fun) and I haven't decided if we will put her back on the "Proin". It can be a given for a lifetime to prevent the incontinence, but I am cautious. Life has allot in at the moment, just keeping them in decent kibble is enough, and I can clean up a little pee now and then. I will update again. Till then.... Love all your fur babies, because they sure love us and ask so little in return. xo

Our Female Saint Lucy has been having "accidents" for the past several weeks. She has been potty trained for months. Lately, she will get up from a nap or from bed, and her entire back end and tail are soaking wet. She still is going outside, and we have begun the high praise for "Outside Potty" Good Girl! again. I am getting concerned because it seems her "accidents" are coming more frequently. Anyone else have this problem? She and her brother Charlie are going to vet tomorrow, and am going to share with them and see if we can get a diagnosis....
Any Help Appreciated
