there are a variety of things that can be done --

first, she should have a urinarlysis run just to ensure there isnt a urinary tract infection that is underlying and causing the problem

some people have good luck with DES, but other people use PPA (proin), which is the more common drug to use. you can see if your vet can try your dog on this.

some other people have a lot of luck eliminating grains from their dogs diet and having that improve the incontinence - you can search for grain free (or low grain) dog foods, or look into a raw diet (i dont know what you feed now).

if the DES is working well for now, good luck and hopefully this will be all you need!

yes - the theory behind that is that soy contains phytoestrogens, which could mimic the place of real estrogens that are missing in the body and tighten the urinary sphincter muscles.

cant hurt :)
