Spay incontenence is more common in females but in both sexes it is believed to be linked to a decreased sex hormone. The decreses in sex hormone occurs gradually after nuetering so it not common for spay incontenence to occur immedately after spaying but months and years later.

PPA is no longer available by perscription because it is linked to stroke in female humans. Since the type of stroke it causes is exceedingly rare in dogs it can still be obtained from commpounding labs but the price is greatly increased, many vets are curently looking for a more cost effective alternative.

Rheegs and Bandit, the two beagle girls are on PPA for spay incontinence. The sympton of both girls were wetting the bed while sleeping. It is a classic system of a weak urinary sphincter.

another solution might be to wait to feed him until after you eat an have more time to monitor the situation.

The theory of pack heirarchy as it relates to humans and dogs ( which I do not subscribe to) mandates that humans eat before dogs because in wolfdom the Alpha dog eats before lessor pack members.
