Default Bladder Problem

I'm not sure if anyone else has this problem with their boxer, but Suzie has seem to got a weak bladder now that she is a bit older. I know it's normal to happen when dogs get older.

I think her's is worse because I know female dogs, especially spaded boxers even dobermans are know for this, that "leak". And Suzie Q would leak every now and then when she was only walked about 2 times a day. I know shes too old to do that anymore and take her about 4-5 times a day. BUT I was wondering and read up on some stuff to help with her bladder and one think I picked up at the grocery store today was parsley. I hope it works but I was wondering if anything else might help? I just hate her going through this....she still my puppy at heart I know its just a little bladder problem but if there's a way to help my not?

As mine got older and I saw her needing to urinate more, sometimes with discomfort took her to the Vet and turned out to be a UTI.

Parsley is a great idea and works well for post spay incontinence. They make medications as well, but I would see if the parsley works before taking the medication route. Good luck!

My SuzyQ is 8 and once in a while she will have a little leak and she is so upset by it. I am going to try the parsley, it doesn't happen very often but if parsley would help that would be great. She has been tested for UTI, so I know it's not that. Good luck with your Suzie Q

Last year mine was having accidents and he NEVER had before, but it was like 2 times a day, he is 11, we were shocked, we even thought he might be mad about something, when we noticed he was doing it while he was walking and seemed embarassed, a neighbor suggested it might be an infection, we put an herbal supplement in his water it stopped almost immediately. Hope you can find something that helps.

Suzie Q seems to like the Parsley and it was only 88cents for a big bundle of it. SO its been about a few days and it seems to be helping

I went and bought a bundle of it for 88cents. And from that bundle I give her about 3 strands of it and cut it up to tiny pieces.
