My 9 year old german pointer is paralyzed and wears a diaper

Customer Question

My 9 year old german pointer is paralyzed and wears a diaper with a poise pad. This morning I noticed that he had eaten 1/3 of the pad. He seems fine. Has eaten and has been out running on his wheels. Should we do anything? Now we know to keep his diaper tight as this is a new finding. He's been in a diaper since March.
