Urinary Incontinence

Anyone's female dobe ever have urinary incontinence? Jett (she's spayed & 7 1/2 yrs old) started with his about 6 months ago, we got her on DES & it worked for a while. Then it started again, & we had to go to twice a week. Seems to be working well. Just wanted to get a little feedback from other dobe owners. Thanks.

I haven't yet, but will have in a couple of days as I have a 6yr. old red tripod coming in who is spay incontinent. She currently is on DES 2x a week. That's where I have a problem. I talked to my vet about DES, and they won't prescribe it, haven't for a while. According to them, it is a synthenic hormone (sp) that can cause breast cancer. So, it looks like she will be going on Proin which has to be given every day. Anyone have experience with Proin?
Thanks for the response. I understand why you are trying to wean off DES. I just wonder - if it causes problems with humans, I think I would be a bit leary about using it for my dobe. It always seems like you cure one thing and cause another.
