Customer Question
She is 13 year...

She is 13 year old lab and paces and pants a lot and sometimes pees on my rug. She has a mammory gland tumor. She is on St. John’s wort, rymadil and melatonin

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Some lumps are serious and some aren't. Let's see what the Veterinarian has to say. What is the dog's name?

Harleigh

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Harleigh?

She doesn’t have a UTI, but it’s like she just can’t hold it sometimes and will almost pee on the rug right in front of me if I don’t hurry to let her out.

HI this is DRB and I would be happy to help you with this.....your dog should be tested for Cushings disease in my opinion. The pacing and panting and the urinating sounds like cushings disease should definitely be ruled out. I would first ask for a CBC, chem panel, electrolytes, urinalysis , 4dx and T4 test. If there are suspicious values for cushings disease then your vet can test specifically for that. The basic bloodwork will also help rule out liver and kidney disease too. This needs to be done first. I think the urination is because your dog cannot hold it. If all this bloodwork is normal then canine cognitive disease would be worth considering as this can also cause all of the above signs. I hope this helps you but do let me know if you need additional help. Sincerely, DRB

I check my computer every night so if you have other questions please let me know.
