How Do I Treat an Older Incontinent Dog?

What can I do with a 13 year old female dog who "dribbles" urine all the time? There are times when you cannot tell that she had a bath the day before. I am concerned about the urine burning her skin, as well as the smell.

They have pads for dogs at your petstore. Have you taken your baby to the Veterinarian? Your Vet can prescribe or recommend a cream that you can apply to her vaginal area to ease any skin brun or irritation on her. Good luck

Though your gal is thirteen, being a senior dog doesn't automatically mean that the urine dribbling is just normal aging; there are a whole lot of reasons why this could be happening. Tumors in the bladder are a real possibility. I'd have your vet take a look at the cause of it and go from there.
