We just started our 12.5 year old male akita on Cholodin. He has recently also started having bladder control problems. I am wondering if the bladder problems are from the cholodin or old age.
( He is also taking deramax.) I had another breeder reccomend Bio-Flex. We are just trying to do everything we can to help him maintain good health. He has lost his hearing so we are now using solely hand signals.
If anyone has any reccomedations on supplements for older dogs, or other suggestions We would really appreciate it.
As our first Akita he is very special to us!
Old dogs leak but the vet might be able to prescribe something to help. My (much younger) female dog is on a very mild synthetic hormone that controls leakage and urgency really well with no noticeable side effects and it's super cheap.
12.5 years is awesome, He's obviously been well taken care of. I love the old timers, it's a comfort to have them around and they're a great excuse to procrastinate buying new carpet.
