I think it's a uterine infection only?

Our Boxer went through the incontinence for a while. It was a long time ago, but it came down to spaying her too early. The meds controlled it, and I don't remember the exact time frame, but she was weened off it and I guess, out grew the problem by the time she was a year old or so.

I have had 2 females with incontinence ..Chihuahua and mutt. Both spayed as puppies. Both had incontinence start around age 2. I do not know if it was related to the spay though, it was long ago. I just know they use to leak urine when laying down and often would not make it to the door to ask to go out.

However all my friends and family throughout my life with early spayed females - only 2 had this issue. A husky mix and a Golden (that may have had another condition) And we are talking a lot of dogs. So I would say it is the exception rather than the rule were I forced to make a choice. If I was not going to breed I would spay a female once she hit maturity.

hmmm...Banshee did have some kind of incontinence for a couple of months years after she was spayed. But it didn't last. So, I guess my answer is still no, we haven't dealt with it. I"m thinking that it would be a long term condition?

I'm sure it not only comes down to hormones, but skill of surgery. I know people who dealt with post pelvic/reproductive surgery deal with post surgical incontinence that resolved over time.

It wasn't long term for her. It never came back. That was around 1994 or 5 though. Memory has faded along with testosterone.

Will it bring back my hairline, abs, and formerly upright posture?

Helping rid the world of testosterone- priceless.

For everything else there is master card

I am officially flagging myself off this thread before I get too silly...
