Q. My dog seems to have lost control of her bladder ...she is a ten year old lab

A. Incontinence in older females is very common. Take her to the vet to make sure it is not an infection causing this.

There is a very good medication for urinary incontinence - your vet will prescribe it to you once he rules out other causes, it's called propalin.
