My dog is suffering from incontinence, and only improves

Hi there, my dog is suffering from incontinence, and only improves when she's on painkillers. She is completely house trained and it distresses her as well. She has issues with her hind legs and as there is a lack of veterinary care where I'm from, the only thing she benefits from are painkillers. I was wondering if antacids can help with side effects of painkillers? If so, which/how much antacid should we give her. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you!JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?Customer: There are no visible wounds. She's had weak hind legs from birth and it's gotten somewhat worse. There's sadly no facility where we could get an x rayJA: What is the dog's name and age?Customer: Xena, she's a German Shepherd and she recently turned 4JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Xena?Customer: She's neutered, she was neutered when she was 1yr and 1 month old
