My 9 year old basset hound had a sudden bout of incontinence

Customer Question

My 9 year old basset hound had a sudden bout of incontinence and now will not stop drooling. He is visibly uncomfortable but it does not seem like he has a flipped stomach or twisted colon because he is not reacting to pressure applied to that area. Do I need to take him to an emergency vet or should I let him sleep it off?

He definitely got something under a bush today - unfortunately I have no idea what it was though

He just pooped -
So not twisted stomach I don't think

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. Was he urinary or bowel incontinent? A gastric dilatation volvulus (GDV) is evidenced by repeated nonproductive attempts to vomit and a distended abdomen. Drooling indicates nausea, GI distress, and/or oral pain. May I have an update on Beauregard, please?
