It looks like there was a typo, did the vet state she was in renal failure?
How long has Sara been doing this?
What are you using to clean up after her accidents?
Do you have a fenced yard?
What have you tried so far?

On Tuesday next week we have an appointment with the third veterinarian in the practice. This is because her urine has an abnormally strong odor to it.

JaCustomer,
I am not able to do phone calls at this time. Since I am unable to get the information from you concerning her renal failure, what has been tried and other information, I am going to opt out and see if someone else wishes to work with you.
