My Female lab was spayed at 6 months old. She started having

My Female lab was spayed at 6 months old. She started having incontinence problems shortly after the spay but never before she was spayed. My vet gave her Prion which works but I do not like giving this drug to her. Is there an alternate medication something more natural or along the Holistic lines perhaps much safer for my Dog. I need your help this drug scares me as the FDA took it off the market for humans so to make their money on its development they suggested using it on Dogs. Help Please!!Carol

I have a two-part question about my 4 and a half year old

Hi, my name is ***** ***** I have a two-part question about my 4 and a half year old Pomchi, Penny. 8 days ago she vomited while sleeping in our bed while laying on her side from being dizzy because she has a vestibular disorder. She does not chew her food too well, so the wet food she eats is chunky andthe vomit contained a lot of chunks in it. I am pretty certain Beyond Reasonable Doubt that some of this material is still remaining up in her nasal passages. Not enough to completely block her breathing but she does continuously try to clear her nose. We have taken her to our vet which extacted a bugger , and give her a shot of convinia 5 days ago after a mucousy discharge started to come out. Then 2 days ago , we stepped it up a notch and took her to a local 24hr specialty vet which put her on azithromax. That was 48 hours ago and she is still showing discharge. What would you suggest doing?
