Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

I am sorry to hear Mac is leaking urine. It is unlikely that Tolterodine would help.

In spayed female dogs, there can be poor urinary sphincter tone, causing urine to leak out when the dog is relaxed. We usually treat with medication that improve sphincter muscle tone, such as low doses of estrogen given twice weekly, or a medication called PPA, phenylpropanolamine.

Tolterodine works on spasms in the bladder, and does not help with improving the muscle tone of the bladder sphincter.

I would ask your vet about low twice weekly doses of estrogen.
