I have a 2 year old European Doberman. I imported her from Altobello in Serbia. Since her arrival in Colorado, she has had trouble with incontinence. I noticed that she would urinate and defecate in her crate when in a deep sleep. I had originally attributed this to her not being housebroken. At 4 months old, and only 13 days of being in my home, her vet diagnosed her with urinary incontinence and poor anal reflexes. At 9 months old, she developed a closed pyometra and had to have an emergency hysterectomy. I believe that the incontinence may have caused the pyometra.
She is now 2 and she constantly drips urine while walking. I have tried Proin, but this made her aggressive and weak. We began Incurin, but have had to consistently increase the dose. She is now on the highest dose and it is still not controlled. Her breeder has not given any help on this issue, nor does he offer to replace her. I am at a loss here and scared we may have to euthanize her. My kids are devastated. Does anyone have any suggestions? Has anyone ever heard of this happening to a puppy?
