I am so so so sorry for my VERY delayed reply! messages are not being delivered to my inbox.
Anyways Sophie turned 6 in November.
She still leaks urine when her bladder's full (bladder is not as strong as a normal dog's). But it doesn't leak all the time, unlike before.
I can't let her fur grow too much, it makes her skin sore of it clings to the long fur so she gets some urine burns. So I usually take her to the groomers' for a shave every four months, and she doesn't leak so much when her fur's short.
Anyway, I suspect she has a case of hip dyslapsia now. Breaks my heart, so I will be taking her to UPM again to get it diagnosed & seek advice on treatment.
How is your Sophie? I do hope you managed to find some sort of treatment for her, poor baby.
If you;d like to contact me via email, do PM me for quicker response. ~ A dog is the only one who will love you more than you love yourself~
