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

I have a chihuahua, age 1-3 yrs old. She has an umbilical

I have a chihuahua, age 1-3 yrs old. She has an umbilical hernia and saw a vet a few day ago. They suggested changing the dog food, but the dog gets up throwing up bile, without any food in it. Yesterday she threw up in the middle of the day (white foamy emesis). What can I do?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the chihuahua?Customer: She has always been lethargical since I got her from the rescue. She spends most of her day laying down.
