Just wondering what experiences people have had with Proin. I have had Teddi on it for over a month now. She did well on it at first, but with reduced dosing, goes right back to losing urine. Currently I am on every other day, which seems to keep her dry but I am seeing other problems that worry me. I am not sure if I am seeing side effects of the Proin, or if the end is insight for us. She is fifteen, and has had multiple surgeries to remove tumors. I decided the last surgery would be her last, because each time, the vet has had to cut deeper than the time before, and recovery is harder. The tumors always come back. Any way, at this point I am hesitating to take her to the vet, which I will soon, but I just don't want to be faced with another hard decision. I just euthanized Wiley in November, and I am not prepared for another loss so soon.
I am seeing loss of appetite, weight loss and lethargy. The only time I can get her up is to go outside to the bathroom. I took her off the Proin for about a week, and put her in diapers. I did not see much improvement in symptoms, but did notice that she seemed restless, and wandered from room to room aimlessly night and day. I have yet to find a diaper, doggie or baby, that doesn't leak so I put her back on the Proin. What confuses me is that her appetite returned after I put her back on it, at least for awhile. Now we are back to not eating again. I am going to stop the Proin again to see if she starts eating but would be interested to hear what experiences others have had with it.
